    Short version: I purchased a Xaviere P bass I didn't really need just to have a P strung with flats on hand at all times in my studio.

    It's a lovely bass, on par with or better than the Squier CV series, but since it's just been sitting since I purchased it I'd prefer to pay it forward instead of reselling it.

    Looking to help out a brother (or sister) in need: an eager student looking for a quality instrument, a long time time player who has fallen on hard times, or anyone in between. I'd love to keep it local to SoCal if possible, but could ship it as well if the new owner is willing to cover those costs.

    If you fit the description above, or know someone who does, please free to send a PM: I plan on leaving the thread open for a week or two to field responses and find the best candidate.

    Cheers!

    I bet someone lost a bass in our recent fires here in California.

    Good for you for doing this. :thumbsup:

    There's a benefit going on to help musicians here that lost gear in the Paradise area due to the Camp Fire. If you would like, I might be able to find out who to connect with in order to donate to that cause.

    That is really cool of you to do. I own one of these basses, and they're really good for the price. I hope it finds a good home :)

    That was actually a big catalyst for the idea: I live about 50 miles from the fires and you can can still feel the smoke in the air in my neighborhood.

    I’m about 2 hours south of the camp fires. We’ve had poor air quality here in the bay area since Friday.
    Your idea is a very generous one.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and people who lost loved ones .

    I’d be happy to connect with some folks from that benefit, thanks for the help.

    You must be close to me. I'm in Sacramento. Where are you? And yes, prayers to the victims. It's horrible. The air is bad here, but nothing like what those in the fire zone have been dealing with.

    Thanks. I'll see if I can find the announcement in the local music group and will figure out who to connect you with. Will PM you tomorrow.

    Give it away to you brother for forever, don't try to sell it and then take it away.

    I donated my old Ibanez and a Behringer amp to a summer camp that needed instruments. Just another option in case you wanted to expand the opportunities of people getting the chance to try something for the first time.
