... but I hope not. This guy listed a used Bacchus Universe Series Jazz bass worth maybe $250 used for $850. There were some upgrades: Audere Pro-z pre-amp Nordstrand Big J Blade Warm and Wooly pickups High mass bridge I offered him $500, he declined. Said he had over $500 in parts. (This is the ultimate discussion... do mods increase the value of the bass? In this case, over triple the cost.) I watched the price drop, drop, drop... then another drop and sale... got it for under $400. Based upon his comments in the email, I wonder if there will be some bait and switch.
