    I have been setting on this MIA jazz bass I bought from Thelowend.net for about 8 months now and I have decided a passive jazz isn't for me. The color is aqua green metalic but the pics show more of a blue tint to it, due to the lighting i guess it changes a bit. it has a white pealoid pickgaurd and a maple neck, It is in really good condition, no major dings or dents, 2 belt buckle scratches on the back but not bad.It has mainly just been setting in the case all this time. I never gigged with it, just really couldn't get my sound at practice.

    So im asking $550 shipped but Im definetly considering other basses for trades,
    Im really open to anything besides passive jazzes and willing to go up or down alittle bit. 4's or 5's, active/passive, new old, traditional/hi-fi, whatever im really keeping my options open.

    that's a nice looking bass... just so you know, if you add an outboard preamp such as the sadowsky or others, it's the same as having an active bass....

    yeah if it doesn't sell i was thinking about going that route.

    I forgot to add that it comes with the orriginal fender hardshell case and the orriginal papers and tools.

    p.s. I would gladly trade for an upright fairly close in price to the bass.

    it had a short stint on ebay but to no luck. so im bumping it.

    $525 Shipped sounds best but im interested in large cabs or 2 stackable cabs, active basses, a p-bass, maybe a fretless, definetly an upright.

    Thanks
    -Jason Smith

    p.s. this is just setting in its case under my bed, someone buy it, its lonley.

    Question: Did you get that bass from Brian Barrett? Looks a lot like one I traded to him.

    Just curious.

    If that's the case, I can attest to that bass. It's magic! So good, that it almost made me want to go back to 4-strings after about 15 years of 5's only! Wish I'd never gotten rid of it.

    tons and tons of offers but nothing I have needed so far. Im mainly interested in cash now due to that fact I have done no Christmas shopping.

    I can negotiate on the price some so $525 shipped or best offer takes it.

    If you have that at the end of the month still, game over... it will be sold. In other words, I'm going to buy it. :smug:

    Well he's been trying to sell it for awhile and no takers. I can't imagine why this hasn't sold. Great price. Gorgeous finish. It sounds and plays amazingly. I wish I could take it, but I can't justify it.

  20. Buy this thing! I can't believe it's still here! That's an amazing price.
