    here's the next Axe on the chopping block ... a 1986 Yamaha MBIII ... i tried to make this a higher tuned bass , soprano like with a high C on top, since it has a slightly shorter scale length at 32" ( normal is 34 " ) but i prefered the bridge spacing on my other bass ... so off this goes ... it's been gone over, cleaned up , new strings, new abalone knobs, adjusted ... great bass for slightly smaller hands .. !! light weight at 7.5 lbs .. ! still has it's original case, knobs, truss wrench ... it has it's fair share of dents, dings and buckle rash ... fairly normal for 27 yr old bass ... passive humbuckers , Vol/Vol/Tone ...

    $375 shipped .. lower 48 Only ... Paypal OK ...please send me a PM if you want any more info or have questions ... it is White , the shade changes in the pics some with flash, some without ... the true shade is in between .. ! i have several more pics if you need ...

    thanks for looking ... i'll post more pics ... ! Dave C.

    thanks Mike ... i played a cousin to these med/short Yamahas back in the late 80's .. the headless Yam BX-1 ...

    fun to play , surprisingly pretty big sound ... plus this one still has it's case in pretty good shape ..

    but i just ordered another guitar ( which is silly because i play keys/bass ) ... got a used PRS on the way for my frustrated inner guitarist .. !
