    I had this one posted a while back but now I really do need to move it so I'm putting it back up.

    First of all, this is not a "cheap" bass. It plays and sounds much more like basses priced at $1,000 or more.

    This is the exact same model bass that Tom Barney played on the 2003 Steely Dan "Alive In America" tour. Check out the CD if you want to hear what it sounds like. This bass is very well suited for funky fingerstyle or straight ahead rock!

    Here are the specs!

    Construction: Bolt-on, 35" scale
    Body: Ash with quilted maple top, abalone purfling on body
    Neck/Fretboard: Maple/rosewood with dual graphite reinforcement rods
    Inlays: Abalone dots with model name at 12th fret
    Pickups: EMG 35
    Electronics: Vol, Blend, EMG BTS active EQ
    Hardware: Gold satin
    Tuners: Hipshot Ultralite
    Bridge: Hipshot "A" style with string-thru-body
    Spacing: 17mm
    Binding: Creme (body)
    Frets: 21 XJ
    Colors: Trans-Red
    Weight: 10 lbs.

    I just had the body completely buffed out so it looks pristine! No dings, dents or scratches.

    Asking $599.00 OBO shipped in the continental US.
    Includes SKB molded case (made specifically to fit the body of this bass).

    This is a "whole lotta" bass for $599.00..................!!!

    I hear you but regardless of it's color it's an absolutely killer bass for the price. Nothing in the $600 range can touch it IMO. It's surprising to me that there isn't more interest in it.

    If I had the cash, I'd snatch that bass up in a second! Those Deluxe LTD's are the absolute best J-style basses I've ever played. Good luck.

    swpyne, does it sound like a jazz or more like a modern bass? Is the string spacing 17mm?

    Dr. Cheese, the spacing is 17mm and as far as it's sound goes, it sounds to me somewhat like a Modulus Q5 but warmer because of it's wooden neck. The EMG soapbars tend to give it more of a modern tone but with some adjustment it can sound quite a bit like a more traditional jazz bass.

    I'm not stretching the truth one bit when I say this is the nicest $600 bass I have ever run across.

    Come on people, I need an offer I can't refuse! I'm astounded at the lack of interest in the bass. :confused:

    Do I have to "give" it away? :help:
