    Up for trade is my Traben Tribal Sun bass. $300 Shipped CONUS in OHSC I haven't had this bass very long and it was purchased brand new so the condition is very mint.

    I love the bass, but as pretty much everything I do now is either jazz or musicals, I'm just not in the need for such an aggressive bass anymore. The sound on it is great for anything aggressive. Make no mistake, you will not be using this bass at your jazz gigs, but it screams on rock/metal. Works great with any dirt that naturally likes an active bass.

    This Tribal Sun has, in my opinion, one of the best flamed maple tops I've seen on a Sun. It's amazing in the light.

    The normal technical details:

    Features and Specs
    Body Wood: Basswood
    Top Wood: Flame Maple
    Neck Wood: 5-Piece Maple and Walnut
    Fingerboard: Rosewood
    Frets: 24
    Bridge Design: Tribal Sun
    Pickups: Traben Custom Combo
    Pre-Amp: Traben T3 active
    Nut: Chrome Plated brass
    Inlay: Traben T and Abalone dots
    Hardware : Chrome
    Scale Length: 35 in.


    I do have the Hard Shell case the bass came with, and it is also in perfect condition. Additional Pictures can be supplied upon request.

    Very nice offer, but I think at the moment I'll have to pass. I already have a Jazz I'm happy with (and 2 P-bass, why I'm trading this one) and kinda on a exploration of sound.

    But that bass is very nice, and I wish you luck with it.

    As above, right now I'm just looking to explore basses at the moment. I may be available to sell later, but just not looking for it at the moment.

    And thank you for the compliment.

    Seriously, pm me if you ever want to sell instead of trade. You'd probably have a sure sell if the price is right (that bass is drop dead gorgeous).
