    Holy cow this bass smokes....I LOVE it..but I feel stupid playing it... now that I am close to 40 and fat and bald it seems silly rocking a T-bird...but man what a bass..

    I have to tell you- I have had Gibsons, Epi Elite and even a Vintage one over the years and this the best of em. Class T-bird growlly tone- not muddy like the new ones.. Neck to die for plays like butter.. very minimal neck dive etc.. Appears to be a correct repo of a vintage bird only thing I detect not correct is absence of pickup rings.. which I have ordered and will be inlcuded with the bass. No cracks or breaks bass is 100% solild 9 out 10 condition wise. Comes with pleather Orville bag.... I'd be happy to order a case for you prior to shippment at GC ( provided you pay for the case) so that it remains in good repair for shipping- will be well packed and insured.

    cash price $1100 obo

    Trades you ask.. well..
    Bacchus STR bass
    maybe Glockenklang/EBS Fafner or Aguilar DB750/751
    Certian Spectors ( Kinda Picky)
    Pedulla MVP
    Sadowsky
    Markbass randy jackson head/4X10 cab
    Ibanez Musician Plus Cash
    80's/90s Stingray or Sabre (classic reissues considered)
    Rickenbackers
    70s/80s P basses or RI - might talk about Road worn and Cash
    New Fender AVRI jazzes too

    feel free to run others by me.. I love high endy stuff thats off the beaten path..

    My computer is not being cooperative so I will upload some cell pics to this thread, if you'd like more detailed pics please pm me WITH your email address and I'll gladly send some. I will also be glad to meet someone in Chicago, Louisville, Cincinatti area to aviod shipping

    Thanks
