    I have a sunburst Hofner Icon Beatle bass that I'm not using, so it needs to go.

    The frets were leveled and polished before I got it. It play great.

    laBella Beatle Bass flatwounds installed. Knobs upgraded to cream teacups.

    The only issue with the bass is that the neck side strap button screw broke, so I relocated the button when I installed straplocks. Dunlop straplocks and Levy's black leather strap included (not a Beatles or vintage style strap). Honestly, it sits better with the new location to me. Less neck dive.

    Also comes with a gigbag.

    $325 shipped

    TRADE INTERESTS:

    Micro amps (TC Electronic, GK, etc)
    Interesting effects pedals (Markbass supersynth, VT Bass Ver 2 plus cash, etc)
    Kala Bass Uke
    5/6 string of comparable quality (I could add a little for the right bass, but I don't know what I'm looking for--I'll know it when I see it).
