    Hey, I'm thinking of getting a SR 885 thats in really good condition. Had a question though. I've found 2 different models of these, one with a slant pickup & one with two soapbars...What's the difference & what's a good price on them. Thanks! 29468964_10211891674029066_5896795419425374208_n.jpg
  2. I can tell you that I own the model with the slant J-pickup. I've owned it for more than 25 years. I always received compliments after live sets. It still plays and sounds great.

    Sadly, you'll only get between $250-300 for the bass these days. It's worth much more to me to keep it.

    I owned an SR885LE, slant front pickup for a long time. Beat the crap out that bass and still played like a champ. 250-300

    I'd be getting this one as part of a trade. But it's $150 cash. Just not sold on getting a 5 string yet. I'm primarily a guitarist but I "try" to play bass. Thanks for the replies though.
