    Hey guys,

    Looking to sell a beautiful R Bass SC6. Traded another TBer for it earlier in the year and have loved every second of playing it, but I'm GASing really hard for a Hammond B3 and I'm trying to scrape together some funding.

    Here are the specs and pictures, straight from the original thread. Looking for [DEL]$2400[/DEL] $2200 OBO. No trades please, unless you have a Hammond B3, DSI Prophet 08+cash, or high end guitar of some kind! :bag:

    - 6-string 18mm spacing
    - Single cut design
    - 5-Piece Neck W/ Rosewood fingerboard
    - Solid Ash body W/ Zebrawood pickguard
    - Hipshot hardware
    - Custom made Reed James humbuckers W/ wood covers
    - Bartolini 5.4 5-knob (Vol, Vol, 3 Band EQ W/ Mid Freq push/pull & passive/active switch)
    - 34" Scale
    - 2.125' Nut Width

    Link to the pictures here.

    Cheers guys, thanks for having a look. Feel free to ask any questions you might have!

    I'm in Boston. However, I visit Los Angeles every couple weekends and could easily meet you there as well depending on where you're located. :)

    And to Alan, thanks for the free bump! You're absolutely right, it's a wonderful instrument.

    All PM's answered, bass still here!

    I clarified in my PM to Herson, but might as well put it here too-- the only trade I'd consider is a Hammond B3 tonewheel organ. That's what this sale is meant to fund. :)

    That was my old Bass,I got this Bass from Jorg Shroeder and upgreded it with the
    Zebra Pickguard and wood knobs, Probably it sounds better with the Dual coils

    Would love to consider this but it's a bit out of my range. Thought I'd leave a post here however suggesting that you consider a Nord Stage Piano. for your keyboard. No, it's not a B-3. But has terrific organ effects. I mean awesome. I picked one up used from CraigsList for about $2,000. This is an 88 key weighted....with unreal number of effects from straight acoustic piano to B-3 w Leslie control and everything in btween. If you're sticking to the "real" B-3 I don't blame you...they are priceless. Just thought I'd toss out the idea.

    Definitely a good suggestion on the Nord, but I've gotta have the real deal! :hyper:

    Man, I would love to try this thing out and see how it plays. Looked pretty hard at this (even though I told myself I was taking a break from six string) and at a certain five-string. If the five-string weren't on the way... I don't know.

    The Reed pickups are a pricey addition, and the body looks like a sweet piece of ash. Neck looks interesting, too -- is that ash in the neck? I've heard of at least one high-end maker (Wood & Tronics) doing that with some basses recently, and I know that Fred Bolton (Bee Basses) has used some non-traditional woods in some necks.

    People need to check out the photos of this thing!
