    I got this on a trade not sure if I want to keep this in my bass herd or not. plus I like to try out alot of basses

    I would like to keep this to trades for now if you hae something I want of lesser value we could work something out

    JC Custom Buckeye Burl 5 string single cut

    If you want to see it under construction, go to http://www.jcbasses.com and click on "progress blog," then "buckeye 5".

    there are other threads on this bass out there it sold from $795 -over 1200 in the past year so who knows

    here is some corrected info because some of the past posts were wrong !!

    *Buckeye Burl Top
    *Alder Body "Wings"
    *Maple Neck Through
    *Birdseye Maple Fretboard
    *EMG J/P Pickups (in a humbucker shell)
    *Hipshot Single String Bridge
    *Bartolini Preamp
    *Gotoh tuners Hardware
    *Comes with SKB Freedom case

    ok what people did or did not mention

    * warwick style neck (chunky)
    * large string spacing (think MTD looks .19)
    * fit and finish not perfect
    * there was some damage (build problems) above bridge pickup
    * and around the tone knobs the buckeye had some structural issues (i.e damage/ I did fix it with epoxy and can be seen up close and I took some photos to try to show it, and is stronger then it ever would of been )

    its a cool and fun looking and sounding bass if I keep it I will probally get it refinished in the future who knows

    here is the original sellers post

    here are some fast pics I took ..
    around the small knob you can see the epoxy slightly

    ok as for trades, mostly looking for 5 strings, Electric uprights, Nice recording preamps, nice mics,

    if you have it run it past me the most I will say is no!

    for the people who asked cash price is $775 shipped!
