    Like Jason and the Argonauts, my quest for the golden fleece (bass) led me to conquer these two rare treasures. But now they don't see much playing time so it's time to pass them along.

    First up is a bass comprised of parts obtained here on TB. Maple SX neck with lined fretless fingerboard, old style headstock. Body is solid wood (not sure what kind) with shoreline gold/copper finish, rerouted neck pocket to fit the neck perfectly. New strings and tuners. 8.2 lbs, good shape for an inexpensive bass, condition is 8.75 out of 10 due mostly to minor scratches in the body finish. No case or bag, will pack well. $130 shipped in CONUS. SOLD

    Next is a Galveston Hazze Wazeen 5 string. Never heard of Hazze Wazeen? Me either until I picked up this bass a few years ago. Small, bound body with carved top, gold sparkle finish on top, transparent finish on the back, solid wood (type unknown), lots of surface scratches on back. String through body type bridge with around 19mm spacing. Maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard, 27 frets, nice and chunky feel. EMG HZ pickups with a preamp from a Cort GB75 (vol (active/passsive push-pull), pan, bass/treble stack, low-mid boost switch). Black tapewound strings.

    Balances very well, 8.5 lbs, easy to wear for hours, low B is super solid with these strings, condition is 8 out of 10. Guaranteed to get you noticed on stage! No case or bag, will pack well. $160 shipped in CONUS. SOLD

    On to the pictures!

    Thanks - it's a fun bass. Not really interested in trades unless it's for a lightweight 8 ohm 2x10 cab.

    Bump for lower prices! I may consider parting out the SX if there is sufficient interest.

    Man, I think we are in what's known as a buyer's market. Lots of good deals right now on TB - including this one!
