    3 killer 4-strings here, all made in Japan. Trades I'd be interested in are 5-string basses with 2 humbuckers, 5 string fretless acoustic basses, guitars with p90's, or (maybe) small tube guitar combos. Trades +/- cash are fine.

    1) ESP (not Ltd) Surveyor - $[DEL]600 $550 [/DEL] iiiiSOLD!!!!
    Awesome red maple neck/fretboard on red ash body. Bartolini P/J pickups, Badass bridge. Includes a gig bag. Good condition, with a few small dings and scratches, and some wear and tarnish on the bridge and pickguard screws. HPIM0992.jpg

    2) Kramer Focus 8000 - [DEL]$275 $250 $225 [/DEL] $200 shipped
    Schaller bridge, and I just put brand new Rotosounds on it. The coil tap does not work, so this is basically a P/J. I'm not sure if the issue is the pickup, the switch, or just a wiring problem. The rest of the electronics are fine. Good condition, with a few dings in the finish.

    3) Fernandes APB-4 / Gravity 4 - $[DEL]450[/DEL] [DEL]$425 $400[/DEL] $350 shipped
    Gotoh bridge, FGI pickups and 2-band preamp. Tweed gig bag included. Great shape with a few very small dings in the finish.

    :bassist:

    I'm not sure if its a Crafthouse or not. There aren't any markings to indicate that it is, but I haven't seen another one like this. Thanks for mentioning the color, it does look a bit purplish in the pictures, but the color in person does not look purple at all. I'd say it's pretty close to this color: [​IMG]

    The ESP is a bit to colorful for me.

    The Kramer is too Rock N Roll! :bassist:

    But that Fernandes is looking mighty fine...hmm.

    Yeah, I got that as a backup twin to my black Fernandes Gravity, which was my first "real" bass. I never really played this one much. Now I've switched to 5ers, but I'm keeping the black Fernandes for sentimental reasons.

    ...and it seems to be in quite nice shape for a 25-30 year old bass.

    I have a craft house myself. I am pretty sure if its a craft house it says it somewhere on the bass. The ESP here looks sweet. If it had the bigger style headstock I would be all over it.
