EDIT- SEE BELOW FOR PRICES TO PART THIS OUT AND NOW A PRICE DROP $600.00- new price PICS ADDED- SEE POST 4 Hey all, I received this bass in a trade from a fellow TBer earlier this year. I rarely need 5's in the classic rock band I'm in and I need to upgrade my amp rig so I'm putting this out there to see what kind of interest it might generate. The pro's *amazing Warmoth birdseye maple neck/FB with TONS of figure *full-on G&L L-2500 guts (pickups, pre and all controls) so you know how versatile the sound can get. *a nice Gecko-shaped aftermarket body that is possibly mahogany with a dark stain applied the cons *it seems heavy- (I'll get the weight tonight as well as a couple of more pics) * the strings do not align properly over the treble side of the pickups and neck beyond the 12th fret or so. there is absolutely ZERO signal loss but if you play WAY up the neck on the D & G strings, the reach is a little funny. I think this could be corrected if you were to move the bridge a few mm's or get a bridge with wider spacing. according to the former owner, the bridge is NOT routed into the body. * there is a slight black mark on the bass side of the headstock below the B tuner. It looks almost like the bass had been in a hanger for a while and some of the black cushion material got stuck to it. for now I've attached a link to the thread where I made the trade- there are a few pics of the bass in there at posts 11,12 & 13 http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=620205&highlight=riot I'll get the necessary specs like weight, width at the nut, string spacing, etc later tonight after work. As far as what I'm looking for, in a cash sale I'm thinking $600.00 OBO shipped. I wasnt sure how to value this so I asked the former owner for some guidance. for trades I need amp gear- ideally I'm looking for a louder head and either a 410 or 212 8 ohm cab. I presently have an older SWR 220 head that I love but it just isnt loud enough for rehearsal. Brands I would prefer are SWR, GK, Carvin, Eden, Avatar, Hartke (cabs only- I'm not a fan of their heads). Feel free to run other brands by me as well. I prefer to keep this as close to CT as possible in an effort to keep shipping costs out of the equation for both of us but I'll consider offers from the CONUS. I would also consider a POG pedal as part of a deal. No bass trades, please. I have enough for now! EDIT; OK, here are some additional specs: General info about the neck- 22 frets and the inlays are either abalone or MOP dots-very colorful The bass has black tuners and a black string bar that covers all 5 strings, gold straplocks and a gold bridge with black saddles. The knobs and switches on the G&L electronics are also gold weight ~10.6- 10.8 lbs, roughly 10 lbs, 10-12 oz- not as heavy as I first thought. string spacing is 17mm at the bridge- tough for my older eyes to read those tiny lines on a metric ruler! Per the former owner the bridge is a Hipshot A and according to their website, the spacing starts at 17mm width at nut-overal width 1-7/8, width of neck at 22nd fret- just about 3"-those specs match up to a Gecko medium neck but the headstock is not the same.
