    I just picked this bass up as a backup to my main bass and I love it but, I want to get my hands on another Rbass. Sounds and feels amazing. These are definitely one of the best basses I've played. MIJ with stunningly good craftsmanship. I adjusted the neck and it's plays beautifully with low action and no buzz. Bass in good shape without any noticeable dings or scratches except for some faded paint spots on top where the forearm sitsbwhen playing. I will post detailed pics later today.

    Ash body
    Maple neck
    Birdseye maple board
    Flamed Koa pickguard and headstock face
    Original STR pickups
    Aguilar OBP3 preamp with tone control, mid freq switch and active/passive switch.
    34" scale
    21 frets
    Weighs about 10 lbs.
    STR (FODERA type) bridge and tuners
    String spacing is 18-18.5mm

    Looking to trade for an Rbass only!! Trade value set at $2000.... might sell if offer is good.

    Will post detailed pics later today...

    These STR basses are really great instruments. I have owned several of them over the last 5 or 6 years and the one I have now has become my "first call" 5 string. The note definition is second to none and the overall feel of these basses is very "Fodera-esque". I doubt that anyone would be disappointed with one of these for this kind of price. I paid as much as $3K for a couple of them and I thought they were worth it even at that price.

    Someone should try to snag this one before it's gone.....
