Well, I've been slowly downsizing my gear, mainly because I never get to play anymore. I have entirely too many irons in the fire, and I just can't justify keeping such a gorgeous bass around and not playing it. I hate that I'm selling it, but I can't stand for it to sit and rot. So, here goes. Myrtlewood Roscoe 6-string Spalted Purpleheart fingerboard Demeter Pre-amp In my opinion, the Demeter Pre blows the Bart pre out of the water, but I suppose that's for each person to decide. I've had both--the Bart and the Demeter--and I would take the Demeter any day. This bass is one of the best sounding basses I have ever heard. With all of that said, now comes the price. $1750+shipping, and that's firm. I'm not in a hurry to sell it, but I just want it to go to a good home where it will actually get played. Let me know if you have any questions, and there are numerous here who can vouch for my validity as well as the origin of this bass. It was traded with user "emjazz" about 6 months ago, I believe. Pics below, and I'll add more of specific parts upon request. Mint condition--no scratches or dings.
