    Big bass sale - so everything must go! All basses are priced with UPS ground shipping to the lower 48 United States. Payal only please.

    to email me directly - ernval@comcast.net

    I will make every effort to ship the basses within 48 hours after paypal payment is confirmed.

    If there are questions, I'll try to answer them as quickly as I can.

    All basses are in at least 9/10 condition, some 10/10 as they haven't even been played.

    All basses come with hard shell case unless noted in the description.

    All basses can be viewed by my flicker profile:

    Great collection. GLWTS

    Lots of "everything must go" and "I need to sell this bass to make rent" threads lately.
