    I have a cobalt purple (discontinued) Sterling for sale. It is in PERFECT condition. Not a scratch on this thing.

    maple board
    new strings and recent setup
    nice hardshell case, though not original
    THE BEST PART: 8 LBS!!!!!! is the weight advertised to me at time of purchasing and is what I have confirmed as much as possible.

    I bought this bass last year off of a fellow TBer and have only played it out 2 times that I can recall. Its a shame. Unforseen circumstances are requiring me to thin the herd a little bit and this baby has to go. It plays amazing and sounds like pure [awesomeness]. I need $900 shipped (CONUS), which I do not consider to be much of a stretch at all considering the condition, weight, and color of this bass. Thanks for looking and good luck.

    These pictures are all I can access right now but when I get home later tonight I will take some new, better ones that will do a much better job revealing the beauty of this bass.

    Any questions, email me at brian.e.poole@gmail.com or PMs will work too, though I can guarantee a faster response through my gmail.




    Those are fingerprints. This bass is in MINT condition.





    like i said, better (bigger) pics are coming.

    paypal preferred

    Sweeeeeeeeeet bass and a great score by Mental!

    Since this is such a rarely seen color, if you do have larger pics would you post them anyway? It would be nice to have a better look!

    Congrats on the FAST sale.

    Definitely. And take some really good pics of it when it gets there. I've found that using a tripod and no flash works really well. That bass is gorgeous and deserves to be shown off. :)

    Man, I was waiting forever for this to come up on sale...

    I hate bad timing. Not only was I at work at the time, I'm completely broke. In any event, good job on whoever scored this bad boy!

    Now, that's a hot Sterling!
  12. That was fast. I've been waiting for this one as well, along with those purple MIA Jazz and Precisions that were put up a long time ago. Since when was purple popular now? I thought only me and 6 other people on this board love the color. :p

    That's just gorgeous. Mental Octopus, you're a lucky man.

    I think if it were mine I'd replace the aged pearloid with standard pearloid.
