    This bass isn't getting as much playtime as it deserves and as my band is leaning towards a different sound, this isn't fitting in as well as it used to.
    During 2007, this was a "Guitar of the Week" from Gibson, meaning there were only 400 produced.

    Here are the specs from Gibson

    Tuners: Grover

    Pickups: Two TB Plus ceramic humbuckers
    Controls: Two volume, one tone

    Case Interior: Charcoal Grey Plush

    I'm the original owner of this bass. It's been gigged lightly, maybe 5 times and I always babied it. It does have some light scratches on the back, but they are incredibly light and difficult to photograph. I can do my best to capture them.

    This bass has a real meaty sound. It is basically a Thunderbird, without the neck dive and body. The neck pickup is capable of some real thunderous lows, and the bridge dials in plenty of growl.

    As for trades, here's a list of what I'm intereted. The value on some of these is real wide, but lets see what we can work out.

    Fender Jaguars
    EBMM Stingray/Sterling (preferably double humbucker)
    Gibson Thunderbird
    Gibson SG bass/EB3s
    Fender American Standard J or P
    Epiphone Jack Casady
    Something with Darkstars?

    Feel free to run anything by me. However, I'm not interested in active basses (aside from the Jaguars and EBMMs), 5 or 6 strings, or anything too modern. By modern I mean Ibanez, ESP, Yamaha, things like that. I prefer old school and traditional looks.

    Here's a pic of it most recently. I am TERRIBLE at photography, and have a real crappy camera. If you're interested I can get a friend to take better pics, or try it myself.

    Also, I'd really prefer to keep this in Texas, rather than have to ship it anywhere. I'd be willing to meet anyone in the major metropolitan areas of Texas.

    So, no out of state shipping unless the right deal comes along
