    1700

    1997 Fender RBV for sale or trade.
    Excellent condition. Some minor swirling and some pin point spots on the headstock.

    Weight is 9 lbs 15 ounces.

    Has low action and a tight B string.
    I love this bass but after a wrist injury I just can’t do 5-strings.

    Comes with a dirty but fully functional OHSC.

    Looking to sell for $1700 OBRO shipped and PayPal’ed to the 48.

    I will consider trades for Lakin, Lakland Skyline BG4’s, JO4’s, or DD4’s, American standard jazzes or P’s from 2008 or later, passive G&L, etc.

    All trades must be Passive 4 string jazzes, precision’s, or PJ plus cash my way. Sunburst goes to the top of the list just because. I’m not looking for anything active just to be clear... thanks for looking.

    Is your trade interest only in purely passive basses, or are you open to a bass that has an active preamp, a passive override switch and a passive master tone control?

    I’d really like to keep it to strictly passive. I fiddle too much otherwise instead of letting what’s left of my hands handle the tone.

    I understand, but I had to give it a shot ;) I’ve never played a Fender better than a Roscoe Beck. GLWTS!

    The all important TB question- weight?

    Funny, I was just checking out Roscoe Beck with Eric Johnson on YouTube today!
    GLWTS, the RB is one of the best designed/sounding basses Fender has made...I also love the Victor Bailey signature basses from that era.

    This must be an inside joke.

    Weight is 9lbs 15oz which is pretty phenomenal for a RBV.

    Must rewatch, memory has faded quite a bit. Thanks for clarifying!
