    Hey guys, i'm not totally sure if i'm going through with this, but i want to see what i could get if i do. This has basically been sitting in it's case for a month. I've found out that my ATK works better in my hardcore band. This one was made in April of 2001, perfect condition. Only blem is small scratch (about 1/2) inch long on the headstock, but it's on the side facing you, so you can only see it. Oh, also there is a small paint chip missing, but you seriously have to scan the back of the bass to find it. It is smaller then a needle-prick. You won't even notice it. Has been set up recently, and plays like a dream with absoulutely NO fret buzz. Neck is in perfect condition, everything is nice and tight. I have the bridge cover on now, but i could take it off if you like. Includes the case candy, Rickenbacker hardshell case (with a few small scratches). I have a digital camera, and if you would like some pics of specific things, all you have to do is ask. I'll be looking for 4 or 5 strings, just run it by me. Something like a G&L L-2000 or L-2500 would be fantastic. In the pic, all the things that could look like scratches/chips are simply camera flash.

    Peace,
    Scott D.

    EDIT-I forgot to add that I (*Unlike RIC*) will include the straplock tops. Has Schaller posts and tops-Chrome.

    Actually, I'm worse than him :) Since October '02 I've had:

    Ibanez SR400, Ibanez AEB30LG, Dean Edge 4 Fretless, Tobias Growler 4, Dean JB Standard, Carvin LB75P, Schecter Stiletto Elite 4, Cort B4FL, G&L JB-2, MM Sterling, Yamaha BB604, MTD Kingston Fretless, MM Sterling Fretless

    Now I finally have a G&L L-2000. And we're talking about someone who doesn't play out here :)

    EDIT: Scott is more of an amp 'ho :)

    Tim- the Fatties suck. That pic was taken in august, and i just bought some cheap strings (said fatties), but now it's got Rotosound 66's that have been on for about 2 weeks.

    Kaz-No thanks, not looking for 6'ers.

    Thanks,
    Scott D.

    P.S.-I've been getting some emails about trading Fender's, and i'm not interested in Fender's unless it's a Roscoe Beck 5.

    Would you be willing to let it go for cash? You get some cash and there's some nice looking L-2500s on ebay for around $500
