I have found myself playing my other basses more and so it's time to consider letting these go for other gear I've been wanting to try but can't afford to outright buy at this time. I'd love to try out a Gibson Thunderbird IV or a Mesa Boogie D-180 in great shape. I'm aware headstock breaks are common with TBirds; as long as it has a good repair that is not a concern. I do like 5 strings so a Studio 5 may be considered, but I haven't decided on that yet. No Epis, Pro or otherwise, thanks. Other items may be considered, but if my mailbox fills up with stuff I don't want I'll back off and reconsider what I'm doing. Local trade would be best, would love to try out what you are offering and let you try these out. First up is an LX5 with frets. Wenge/wenge neck, active MEC electronics, and a sweet flame maple body. I was told it had been a NAMM display bass, but I can't verify that. It's a little heavy but balances very well in the lap or on a strap. Currently the case I have for it was originally from a Spector Euro 5 I used to have. The lower frets have a fair amount of wear, but the pics I took of them didn't show the wear (you can't hear the wear but upon inspection it's pretty clear). The highest frets don't ring out as well, so it's possible a dressing or actual fret job is in it's future if you like to play way around up there. I can get the exact frets if you like, but if I recall it's around fret 17+ on the A and D strings; notes play, but if you hold the notes you can tell they're not sustaining. Edit: Upon review the color looks Photoshopped to hell. This is in a Texas backyard, and there's not much green left to it. Late afternoon and not in direct sunlight. I ran the sharpen filter on a couple of the basses to reduce the fuzziness, but I can't remember if I used it on the Warwicks (compare to the Squier 6 string). The color was not altered.
