FS: Washburn Custom Bootsy Space Bass

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by paddydaddyo, Apr 13, 2009.

  1. This is killin' me to have to post this, but I am in a financial situation where all non-essential equipment must be liquidated. As much as I LOVE this bass, and had a blast specking and building it up, I can't justify owning it for a single gig every six weeks or so.


    • Mahogany body with white pearl finish
    • Set neck, 24 fret, bound birdseye maple board w/ star abalone inlays
    • DF hot single coil J pickups w/ white covers
    • Artec 3-band active EQ (vol, pan, mid, concentric bass/treble)
    • Gold Grover Titan Tuners, Dunlop strsplocks, bridge, and ufo knobs with MOTO caps.
    • Custom cut MOTO pickguard, cavity cover and trussrod cover
    • Frets dressed and polished
    • Fresh EB Hybrid Slinky strings
    • New Levy's cosmic strap

    It has a great range of tones ... from punchy, growly mids to a scooped tone that is Marcus-like and everywhere in between.

    I am asking $1200 or best offer ... When Washburn sold the 100 completed basses the list was $4500. It has literally been gigged ONCE and is in beautiful condition. The case alone if you were to buy one would be a couple hundred dollars.

    PM me and I will get back to all.

    Thanks everybody,

    Wow! If only Big Funkin' Deal (my '70's funk/R&B cover band) got off the ground!

    This bass screams "play some JB on me"!

    Great bass and super hard to find!

    Any more pictures of this beast? All of the pics I can find online show them covered with rhinestones or something, but yours is clean. What's the scoop?

  10. Aaarrrggghhh!!!! You are killing me! That is the prettiest bass I have seen on here in a while. Luckly this is on here now and not after the summer (when I have money from gigging). I think the wife would kill me if I ever brought this home.

    Seroiusly, awsome bass. Good luck with the sale and good luck with your situation.
  11. Long-delayed BUMP!

    Somebody here want it? $1000 plus shipping ...
  12. *BUMP*

    OK, it is going on eBay this weekend ... must sell.

    We need to build our own space basses sometime! Dump 5 p pups into a slab of maple and see what happens....
