    $*** More pictures added, price dropped ***
    *** I will now consider trades where I can still get some cash out of the deal ***

    I just got this bass in a trade from fellow TB'er TALL&STOUT about a week ago. It is mint! I had a EBMM for many years and loved it and when I saw this one and fell in love with the perfect Tobacco Burst finish. This bass plays awesome and is one of the nicest looking I've ever seen. Crazy good looks! Here's the actual thread with his nice pics:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-ft-ebmm-stingray-nord-pup-878759/

    I didn't get the original pickup with it. However The Nordstrand 4.2 pup does what i hoped, brings out the best in EBMM tone and reduces much of the annoying high end clankyness, which is why I finally sold my original EBMM. I just didn't think about my neck/back issues that force me to sit constantly when I made the trade. It's still comfortable to sit with, but i have a weird nerve condition that any slight tilt in my shoulder can make a difference and set it off. The bass simply won't get played very often and it's too nice to be neglected.

    Asking [DEL]$900[/DEL] [DEL]$875[/DEL][DEL]850[/DEL]

    [DEL]PRICE DROP NOW ONLY $850[/DEL] plus shipping CONUS.

    LAST DROP, NOW ONLY $825 plus shipping CONUS

    I'd prefer Paypal but other arrangements can be made. I'm not looking for trades unless I can find something I like and still walk away with some cash.

    I just installed new Ernie Ball Cobalt strings, which cost $29 and sound awesome!

    It will be shipped in its OHSC.

    This bass a super clean with only one very little ding, which you can see in the bottom left edge. Other than that, mint. The tobacco burst finish was very well done and balanced. It's a stunning looking and sounding bass.

    These pictures don't represent the color very well (cell phone camera). Please see the outdoor pictures for true color.

    Here's a picture of the back and the frets. All looking excellent!

    I need to move this quick! Reasonable offers will be entertained.

    I have perfect 269 feedback on ebay and a couple here on TB. You can count on a smooth transaction.

    I realized my cell phone camera pictures haven't done a real good job showing the color and beauty of this bass, so here are a few more pictures from TALL&STOUT's original listing, which you can see via the link in my ad. This bass is gorgeous! :bassist:

    Price drop to $875. This is a steal. Mint bass, killer burst finish, upgraded pickup, and brand new Ernie Ball Cobalts. Hello!!!


    Plus, you get a sweet picture of your own new bass that can be used as a background on your computer or iPad. :)
