    For Sale: I have one of the only 400 ever made, Limited Edition Gibson SG Supreme AAA Maple Basses. Made by Gibson in Nashville, USA in January 2007, this bass launched Gibson's Guitar of the Week series.

    This beautiful short scale bass is a real stunner and is bound to increase in value over time. The original list price was about $2000, but of course the "street price" was about half that. Unfortunately, I need some cash right now, so I'm selling it for only $900 plus shipping and insurance. If you check, you'll see that this is less than they've been selling for recently on TB.

    Included in this price are:

    1. The Gibson SG Supreme AAA Maple Bass.
    2. The Original Gibson HSC, plus all case candy.
    3. A set of oversized strap buttons (pictured).
    4. The original strap buttons and screws (in the case).
    5. A barely-used set of Pyramid Gold Nickel Flatwound Strings. (The original strings are on the bass.)

    My bathroom scale says it's 8.2 pounds, but it feels even lighter.

    I really need cash more than I need another bass, but I am willing to consider trading for a recent Fender American P bass that's in excellent condition.

    And if I had the 'dough', it wouldn't be for sale at all. :) I hope one of us gets some soon!

    Is this bass yet available?

    I reside in Georgia , what is your geographic, so I can determine cost of shipping and insurance. I am no kid looking to waste your time. I am a 60 year old Bass freak and want to add to my collection.

    I await a reply. You can find me here "Pbass1962"

    Many thanks,

    Jimm

    It looks like this might now be sold. (I'm waiting on the money.)

    Someone's getting a good deal... One of these sold on eBay yesterday for over $1000.
