    This for Local Sale (Baltimore, MD area) Only. Any requests for shipping will be ignored.

    I have a Lace Helix Bass that is in "as new" condition. I am the original owner. The bass was purchased from MF in December of 2010. It weighs 8 lb. 6 oz. on the postal scale and comes with a nice gig bag. It's a good sounding bass that cuts through well. However, for me the neck is a bit too chunky, and so it must go. The asking price is $80 which is a small fraction of what I paid at the time.

    To answer some of the anticipated questions.

    To the best of my knowledge here is some info from the Lace web site when these basses were still being made:

    Patented Lace Helix Body Shape

    Multi-6 Laminated Thru-Neck Maple with Mahogany Sides

    34" Scale C Shape Neck -21 Frets
    1 5/8" Nut Width - 15" Radius
    2 Lace AlumitoneTM SoapBar Bass Pickups
    1 Lace DAT Volume Knob with 250K Pot (Neck)
    1 Lace DAT Volume Knob with 250K Pot (Bridge)
    1 Lace DAT Tone Knob with 250K Pot
    Heavy-Duty 4 String Chrome Bridge
    Heavy-Duty Sealed Chrome Tuners
    Rosewood Fretboard with Twisted "H" inlay at 12th Fret
    Color: Trans Blue - (More like a Navy Blue)
    Weight: 7.6 lbs (Mine actually weighs 8 lbs. 6 oz.)
    Red Label Design Gig Bag Included

    As far as meeting someone goes, at this price I have to decline. I would prefer that anyone who is interested in the bass would come to see it and play it first. I want people to be happy with what they buy.

    I wish I lived in Baltimore. For 80 bucks you can't go wring. Theses were like 600 bucks!

    Is your $80 asking price an error?

    No. $80 is the asking price.
