I traded for this bass earlier this year, but I haven't really bonded with it. It's in minty, like-new condition. I really can't find a single scratch on it. Beautiful deep cherry-burst finish over ash, maple neck with a morado fingerboard. Sub- 9 lbs, but I'm not sure on an exact weight. I'm very sensitive to heavy basses, and this one is very nice compared to most Metro's I've played. Includes sadowsky hybrid case and wrenches. $1800 shipped conus, paypal OR $1750 via fee-free payment (check, bank transfer, cash in hand, etc.) Please don't lowball me. I'm not sure on trades, but I would consider traditional 4 string Fender-style Jazz basses that net me $700 to $1100 in cash. I'm not looking for a museum piece, would definitely consider a player. I'm mainly looking for a good neck and 9 lbs or less.
