    purple heart layer between the two
    3 piece maple/purpleheart neck with purple heart binding on the fretboard

    In great condition for a bass built in 2002

    I am willing to do a trade plus cash involving any combination of the following:

    Lakland Skyline 55-01's, 55-02's, JO 5's
    Japanese Fender 75 reissue jazz bass
    Fender FSR Jazz bass in Lake Placid Blue with matching headstock and Blocks
    Epifani Ul 2x10 cab. must be 8 ohms and have smaller grill holes
    Bergantino 8 ohm Ae 2x10(2 would be cool)
    Bergantino 8 ohm Hs 2x10(2 would be very cool)
    Genz Benz shuttle 9.0

    And a longshot....If you happen to have a Saab 9-3se from 2002, I will trade this bass plus cash for it

    if you have a 9-5 Aero from 2002-2004, I will trade this bass plus Cash, or a combination of this bass, cash and a 2003 Volvo S60 2.4t for it...

    Thanks everyone! Make those offers!

  3. If there ever was a reason to sell a bass....Saab Aero.....
    I totaled the hell out of my (rare in the US) 08' 9-3 Turbo- X a little over a year ago.
    I tried to find another one when insurance came through, but NONE to be found.
    As rare as the 9-2 Aero. Or Saaburu (basically a Suburu WRX wagon badged as a Sabb).
    Sleeper of a car.

    BTW, the Aero specs out at like 148 or something, but it's electronically limited to 135.
    Not that I would ever try and go that fast.
    Never.
    Not me.....:bag:

    I know it mike. I drove a 9-3 se for 5 years, and did 130 in it once. I'm going to buy a 9-5 aero, but dig 9-3s and the wagons as well. My current Volvo just leaves me wanting something more everytime I drive it.

  5. LOL!!!
    Yeah, I have a Volvo C30 now and I know the feeling!
    Great car, but not the same....

    I got a chance to play this very bass at the Bass Palace in Scranton, PA years ago. The bass had a killer feel and was the bass I wanted to buy from the entire inventory (was on a selling trip to Bob- Japan Yamaha BB1200, eighties Spector NS-2J)....
     
  8. Set neck? Nut width? Type of neck - jazzesque classic c shape is the neck flatter on the back side? Fingerboard radius?

    It is a bolt on neck. C shape but no where near chunky-plays insanely fast but doesn't feel like a toy. Nut width is 1 and 5/8's of an inch. not sure about the fingerboard radius.
