    I just picked this up and it's a really awesome bass... but I ended up using my Spector for the project that I had earmarked for this. So, back up for sale it goes!

    This is a 1998 red sparkle ASAT bass. The bass is in incredible condition with only one tiny defect near the neck pocket on the body. It doesn't really show on pictures but I tried my best to capture it. Per the previous owner, the neck is new custom made at the G&L factory. G&L also Plek'd the bass per the previous owner. It will come with a Fender ATA style case. Strap buttons were replaced with schallers. I have lots of pics that were taken by the previous owner, plus one snapshot I took when it arrived.

    Also, here's a quick video that I shot trying to get an idea of the tone for the project I was working on (please excuse the playing, of course.)

    Oh my god, I actually had sharp shooting pains in my mouth as my salivary glands went into overdrive. I love ASATs and that's the most beautiful one I've ever seen. If I hadn't JUST bought a Bongo (As in, it's still in transit) and if you had any interest in a 2010 Am. Std. P-bass I'd snap this up. I may still try to finagle some kind of deal.... GLWTS.

    It's absolutely gorgeous! Let me know if you want to work out a deal. I'd prefer a cash sale.

    I wish I could. It was selling my old ASAT that I had for 10 years that started me on my current TB-time-eating horse-trading rampage, and my wife would be justifiably pissed off if I ended up with pretty much the same bass I started out with (only prettier).

    As another TB'er is likely to say "this bass will make the ladies throw their bra and panties at you!"

    (disclaimer: ladies may not actually throw their bra and panties at you.)

    Marvelous bass, just curious but what does CONUS mean ? Something about only posting in the US I imagine.. not Europe or the UK ? :(

    It doesn't mean I won't ship outside the US, it just means that if you live anywhere else it will cost more and consequently the total price will have to be negotiated. PM me if you are interested!
