    Time to thin the herd so I'm starting small with these 2 shorties that don't get the playing time they deserve. Feel free to throw any trade offers at me.

    SOLD[DEL]First up is an Epiphone EB-0. I'll never understand the hate for this bass on the interwebs, this bass sounds great and is lotsa fun to play. This is the made in Korea version, which IMO is more consistent (quality wise) than the newer Chinese models. A pickguard screw is rusted and stripped so may be difficult to remove. No case or gig bag, more photos on request. $160 shipped CONUS[/DEL]SOLD

    Next up is an "old headstock" SX P in a beautiful burst finish. This bass plays and sounds great. It was my first SX and now I see what all the fuss is about. The back of the neck has a skunk stripe and it is slightly recessed by the 2nd and 3rd fret. This has never bothered me while playing, and I didn't even notice it for the 1st week that I had the bass. There are also 2 holes in the pickguard from when the previous owner installed a thumbrest. More photos on request, no case or gig bag, $120 shipped CONUS

    More pics of the SX as requested:

    Biggest boo-boo is some string scratches by the bridge, looks much worse in the pic than in person

    Looks like some inlay decals were on the neck at some point due to some residue. I don't want to take the strings off but I was able to scrape some off with my fingernail pretty easily

    A small dimple by the thumbrest, and a light scratch on the upper horn is present, but unphotographable, other than that the bass is clean

    I would love to trade for a Jazz body or nice dirt pedal +/- cash
