TRADED Mayones Jabba 5 (Alder/Flame Maple/Blueburst/Norstrand PJ)

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by ceerod, Feb 14, 2016.

  1. Price:
    Mayones Jabba Classic 5 for sale.
    Asking $2,100 OBO shipped to the lower 48 states (includes hard shell case). PayPal only please.

    I was able to get my wife the new ride she wanted without having to sell this so I'll leave the ad up for a while to see if there's any interest. It's a great bass I won't mind keeping but now that I don't need the $$$ I'll consider trades as I do love trying out new basses. :)

    Bass is in excellent condition, no dings, no dents, no scratches. Some very light swirling on the backside, probably from rubbing against my clothes. You have to look pretty hard to see it, I couldn't get it to show in a photo. Fresh set of Fodera nickel 125-45 strings installed 1st week of February.

    Trades I'd be interested in:
    *5 string fretted basses only
    *Prefer something other than maple fretboard since I have 3 right maple FB's right now and would like some variety....ebony, wenge, rosewood, pau ferro would be cool
    *Brands of interest: Sadowsky, Roscoe, STR, Warwick, Ken Smith
    *Something in ~$2,500 trade value range, I won't have much cash to add for something of higher value.

    Please PM me any trade offers.
