    Bossas are nick-named "the F Basses of Japan". Very similar tone, feel and build quality (I've owned several of F Basses and Bossas)!!! I've never heard a better bass from a tone perspective and never played a bass that plays better. The truth is that I have another Bossa that I slightly prefer the cosmetic appearance over this one. The big advantage to this one is that it has a Tremlo (a very expensive option). Let me also state that the tremelo bridge is 100% stable and will not budge unless you use the tremelo bar. 0 tuning issues!!! Toshio Setozaki (the builder and master luthier for Bossa) hand mills these bridges and it is the most well designed bass tremelo I've ever used. This custom-built bass is priced WELL under market for a quick sale!!!!!!!!!

    This is what many consider to be the ultimate Jazz bass. It's a Bossa OBT-4 (4 string with the tremelo option!!!). She has a Bossa 18v, 3-band preamp, Bossa hand-wound pickups with custom two-piece,hand=made, wood covers. The neck is a "jazz sized", 3-piece neck with a 1.5" nut. The neck has a very flat fret-board radius, with a modern Jazz profile neck front to back. The neck is very comfortable, fast and because of the 3-piece design, is very stable. This bass covers over 3-octaves (25 total frets)!

    Most in the USA don't know what these are, but Bossa is well known in Europe and Japan and they are VERY expensive overseas. This one would go for close to $3,500 USD now if bought new now. It's reasonably light (9ish lbs), has CRAZY low action, has the most killer slap tone around. It's certainly one the most well crafted basses I've ever laid my hands on (it's right up there with Fodera, Sadowsky, F Bass, etc). I would LOVE it and prefer that if you are local, you "try before you buy" (I highly suspect that you will go home with this bass in-hand)!!!!!

    NOTE: Bass will NOT come with old, beat-up, SKB Freedom hardshell case pictured in some of the pics (near the top). That case was not original to the bass and not in good working-order so I purchased a brand-new. Levy's, heavy-duty gig bag (which will be included, free of charge).

    This will give you an idea of the tone:
    Nathan Watts (Stevie Wonder, etc), Rhonda Smith (Prince, Jeff Beck, etc) play Bossa. Check this Nate Watts video --->

  3. I don't understand how this isn't sold. If I get the new job I just interviewed for before this is sold, you're hearing from me...

    Haha, yeah, this poor baby has been in both of our hands a few times! ;-) Since I have the other Bossa, I'm ready to let her go now. I really don't need two.
  8. We really need a talkbass payment plan system.
  9. Bump. Outrageous. And outrageously cheap.

    Agreed and thank you sir. VERY similar build quality and tone to F Bass at a fraction of the cost (I've owned several of both).
  11. Uppity.
  12. Let's assume for a moment that I am a person who has a sort of a head problem, in that if he sees a bass like this he thinks about stringing it piccolo ...

    I can hear the ambulance arriving now.
