    Hey there TBers, a new project forces me to put some gear for sale and I'm going to start with this: here is my amazing '78 JB all original, it is in excellent conditions (really!), I've rarely seen one in better shape.
    It's complete with original case, both pick-up covers, thumb rest and....manual!!! I hoped the manual would explain me how to play like Marcus Miller, but it was disappointing :D
    The only blemish it has is a ding on the neck, which is pictured. I remember purchasing the bass and thinking I was going to fix that as soon as possible, then I played it and it didn't bother me at all, but of course it's all subjective.
    The neck is super straight with quite low action, frets are in excellent conditions, currently mounts a fresh set of DR High Beams. The case is also in great shape, [DEL]one of the latches doesn't spring up anymore but when it's closed it does the job[/DEL], correction, they all work, just double checked :smug:.

    Asking price is $2500 shipped via FedEx ConUS. Paypal ok but no fees.

    I would like a straight cash sale because that's the only reason I'm selling, but I can look into some trades of a lower value, ideally under $1k and in very good conditions. Always liked to try the following:
    - Ibanez Musician
    - Yamaha BB 3000 vintage
    - Status SII headless
    - Warwick Thumb bolt on
    - Sadowsky (less expensive models)
    - Musicman Stingray

    Other than these I doubt I would be interested in something else, you can always try but it has to be a 4 strings. Now pics.....

    I can ship overseas, but shipping costs will be a blood bath, I guess you already know it, where are you located?
