    PRICE DROP - $1300 Shipped CONUS

    For sale is my 2009 Limited Edition Yamaha BB3000 bass. This was part of a special run of only 40 basses that was handcrafted and sold a couple years back to commemorate something.

    This is basically the BB3000 everyone knows, but the custom shop model. The thing just sings. It balances, resonates, and otherwise reminds you "this is a top end bass" whenever you play it.

    Reason I'm selling - I'm not playing it out because it's too nice. I have other basses I can leave on an outdoor blacktop and walk away from without a deep fear of theft and damage creeping in.

    Attaching a few links here. First off is the original For Sale posting by Johnmat:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-ft-yamaha-bb3000-re-issue-700089/

    Next is the second for sale posting by Talkbass stalwart swpyne:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-2009-yamaha-bb-3000-reissue-mij-729312/

    Third up is a shot of the bass (well the model) in action on a German site. This bass is among the same run of 40 - it's just the burst instead of black finish. I assume this guy is saying positive things about the bass, but if not, could some international Talkbasser please point this out for me.

    It's in exactly the same shape it was when purchased by swpyne, which is to say close to mint. there is some minor swirling (captured in the photos attached) but this bass would be called "showroom condition" at your local shop.

    This went new for more than $2000 a couple of years ago. I'm asking $1300 shipped CONUS.

    Please shoot me any questions you might have - thanks!

    More pics...

    Edit - the picture of the swirling on the bass won't upload for me now, but if you go to Joshmat's original link, it will show up there. I will work to try and resize it so I can attach it to this thread.

    Yeah this is one seriously beautiful bass for sure............

    When I owned it I was afraid to take it out to a show for fear of it getting dinged up. :rollno:

    Somebody is really going to fall in love with this one, guaranteed!
