SOLD FS: Taylor AB-3 Acoustic Bass Guitar

  1. I have one excellent condition Y2K (made in 2000) Taylor AB3 acoustic bass guitar for sale. This bass is truly a work of art.

    The back and sides of this acoustic bass are made out of flamed Big Leaf Maple and the top is made out of Sitka Spruce. The fretboard is ebony with Steve Klein’s signature high on the fretboard in ivoroid. The bridge and nut are ebony as well. In addition, this bass has an onboard Fishman ABGP-2 Preamp which controls the under-saddle pickups.

    The condition of this bass is excellent. There are no issues with dryness. The bridge is set correctly, the top is not sunken in, the fret edges are smooth, and the neck has the right amount of “straightness.” All in all, this bass has the correct “action.”


    This bass has one minor ding on the lower horn (as seen in the picture) and a couple of indents on the back. That’s all I can see and other than that I can’t find any other imperfections. The indents on the back are very miner hardly noticable when you look at the bass in person. Also, I have rubbed out the serial number in one of the pics using photoshop.



    Price is [DEL]$2300 + shipping[/DEL] $2150 shipped.

    I will be in Syracuse NY on October 21, Boston on October 22-25, and NYC on October 25-28. If you live in one of those places (or near) I can drop off.

    Very pretty. I have an AB-1, they're great basses. Maybe I should get yours and then find an AB-2 (wife gives me death stare). Good luck with the sale, someone is going to be very happy.
     
  10. Tons of interesting trade offers. I'm pretty picky when it comes to trades...but you never know.

    Still here.

    nice
     
  12. Its interesting, I have some great solid body basses; high end stuff from makers like Pedulla. Those bases sound great, but when you listen to the AB3 the pure acoustic sound it makes is a cut above.
     
  13. TTT. Give me an offer!
