    Up for grabs is this Greco TB900 thunderbird bass. These single-pickup models
    are so-so rare and are notorious for that big piano growl from that hot pick-up
    placed in the sweet-spot. Looks suspiciously like that holy grail 60's bird (that go
    for $10K). At 1/3 throttle it's a lot like a p-bass. At 2/3 it's a classic 60's bird.
    Wide open it eats 7ender strats whole.

    This thing came to me very road worn and without a pickguard or case about ten years ago.
    I lost flex in my hands and only play short scale basses now. Otherwise this would still
    be my main axe. The bridge is mounted crooked but I left it alone because it is intonated well and stays in tune. $875 via PayPal only, shipped CONUS only.

    You can take a listen how it sounds with 4 year old strings right here, directly into my laptop
    no preamp:

    I would absolutely take this if the funds were there. :thumbsdown:
     
  3. The Thunderbird sticker alone is worth the purchase.

    My goodness, that does sound good and growl-ly!

    GLWTS!
