    This is probably the most flexible bass I've ever owned - the S/H pickup combo and the 4-band EQ result in a range of tone that is unmatched. It's also a great looking instrument and it plays beautifully. There are 1 or 2 dings on the bass, nothing spectacular or awful, and I'm happy to provide additional details if someone is interested. Here are a couple pics of the bass:

    Comes with a very nice and almost brand new Warwick Rockbag. Firm price on the bass + bag is $700, which will include insured shipping via UPS Ground anywhere in the lower 48. Payment by postal money order or cashier's check; I'll also take PayPal if you pick up the 3% fee.

    Lots more photos of the bass (including closeup of dings) here:

    ...you cant choke up 50 extra bucks to the asking price for one of the sickest basses out there that's still the cheapest new or used price I've ever seen on any model Bongo?


    ...just my say.
     
  4. you should open a business.

    we send you our gear when we want to sell it, and you take pics and write up a description.

    :cool:

    :D

    You were going to offer 650 for a bass that he was "asking" 900 for? Thats kind of rude IMO.

    There's a guy on eBay whose username is tune_o_matic who does exactly that. I've seen him buy an old Fender bass and then resell it 2-4 weeks later accompanied by great photos and a really thorough description. He usually gets a price 20-30% higher than what he paid. He was the first guy to push Fullerton reissues into the $2k+ range, purely on the basis of better photos and descriptions.

  17. I'll give it a bump, it pains me to see that this bass is still around. If I had the funds I'd snatch it up in a second.
