Joe is good business. I just recieved a Dean fretless 4 in trade for a 12 string acoustic guitar & 1x12 cab(actually a pretty fair deal both ways, IMO). The bass was extremely well-packed & arrived in fine shape- as described. To top it off, when Joe couldn't get my stuff shipped as quickly as intended, he sweetened the deal w/a set of Fender flatwound strings, as well as keeping me informed. Highly recommended.
