    Need some room for other project, these basses are not played enough by me and I would love these to remain in the Talkbass community ! Naturally, I reserve the right to come back to my senses, but please do not hesitate to get back to me for more details on these nice basses. All are in played but outstanding condition except, detailled information will be given to those interested.

    So here we go :

    MTD 535 - Tulipwood Body, Myrtle top, maple neck, rosewood FB. Extremely light and cut through any wall of sound. With HSC - => SOLD

    Pictures here : http://s731.photobucket.com/albums/ww312/lbardot/MTD/

    Citron AE5 - 1 MAG + 1 Piezzo, Stereo Wiring (Mono switchable), individual string saddles. IMHO, Harvey Citron makes the best magnetic pickups on the market. Extensive tone shaping. Comes with high quality padded gigbag. Great sound and exceptional craftmanship.

    Pictures here : http://s731.photobucket.com/albums/ww312/lbardot/Citron/ => TRADED

    Basslab Soul V Fretless - Narrow spacing, very fast neck, very light due to composite material used. Very complete tone-shaping with midsweep. - 1300 USD or best offer => TRADED

    Pictures here : http://s731.photobucket.com/albums/ww312/lbardot/Basslab/

    Martin B-1 - This one is born is 1998. Loud Acoustic Bass (louder than any other acoustic bass I tried, for sure), and possibility to plug it on an amp (there is a intrument cable plug concealed in the lower strap pin). Great for acoustic jams, low action, Martin HSC (aka "the Safe"), light scuff marks on the lower sides, else excellent condition - => SOLD


    Parker Fly bass 4-String - This one is light too - Really ! If you want a high quality 4-string bass without breaking your back, look no further. Great mix of traditional and modern sounds - Records great and the ease to get the sound you want is astonishing. Only goes because I play more 5-String than 4. Comes with Parker G/B => price 1650 USD


    Pictures here : http://s731.photobucket.com/albums/ww312/lbardot/Parker/


    Cash will always be prefered, but as far as trades go, I would be interested in a Reverend 5, a Parker Fly 5, Lakland US 5, Sadowsky or Smith 5 + cash one side or the other depending on the deal.

    5-String Lull Jazz Bass type and Roscoes with Audere would probably also work. Ideally, no bass with Bartolini PU's or electronics and no maple FB, and definitely nothing above 9 lb. Fender American JB Deluxe might make the shortlist too.

    As said, PM me for more informations. I have little history on TB but 100% positive evaluation on ebay. More pictures and information on the above basses on demand.

    So... just clearing out a little junk, eh?

    Those are some monster basses... if this is what you're dumping, I'd love to see what you're using!

    Thanks. But I would not call this "dumping" ;). Anyway, GAS got the best of me these last years, and I only have 2 hands to play, so it is ample time to clear the herd.
