    SOLD

    Sage green. Unmodified. $385 including shipping in the CONUS.

    I bought this bass new in June, 2002. It was for my kids to learn the bass. Turns out neither one is the least bit interested. I have a number of other basses that get played before this one. It is in like new condition. It has less than 8 hours playing time on it. It has hung on a rack in office, not being played, since it was purchased. Time to sell.

    Forgot to mention I will ship in a fender tweed hardshell case. This case is in rough shape and needs latches etc. but perhaps it can be rehabilitated. No case was included when the bass was bought new.

    UPDATE: I have a Fender gig bag. The zipper is not the best...it catches a bit but the bag works.

    Your choice: A hardshell with latch problems or a gig bag with some zipper issues
     
  3. hey - I'm interested depending on what price you can do for shipping it to east coast Australia, NSW 2291

    Can you get me a $$ shipping quote via USPS Priority Mail International. There's a USPS calculator here

    http://ircalc.usps.gov/default.aspx?Mode=Intl_Single&CID=10013

    needs a weight inserted but might also be good to confirm that at a post office

    thanks - peter

    I've added some pictures of the case to the link above. The case itself looks fine. Its a bit skuffed here and there. The hinges seem to be fine. The latches are toast and would likely need to be replaced.

    I may have a spare gigbag hereabouts and could include that in place of this case if you prefer. It is not the gigbag that comes from Fender. I will try to locate the gigbag and get a picture up tomorrow.
     
  5. I've PM'ed you :bassist:

    would prefer a soft gigbag as it'll be much cheaper to ship to Aust.
    Can always pick up a decent used hardcase here
     
  6. hey - you've been silent for several days.
    is there anything hapenning your end.
    Have you sold this bass ??
    I'm waiting for a guitar price & shipping quote from you in a soft gigbag if possible :D
     
  7. Hey mate, just a heads up. You can't ship a full length bass to Australia without detaching the neck and shipping in a smaller box, due the height restrictions brought in last year.
     
  8. Can you provide further details please. Which shipping company. Which end has brought that in - the US or Aussie. I'd like to check on it cause I've imported 3 electric guitars from the US the past 2 years. Had no prob's and paid no more than $US120. Last one was last September.

    Edit - I just checked the USPS website here

    http://www.usps.com/international/prioritymailinternational.htm
    and here
    http://pe.usps.gov/text/imm/immpg.htm

    the only restiction with Priority Mail International is a 66 pound weight limit. That's also the cheapest way to ship a parcel from US.
     
  9. Don't know exact details, but pretty sure it did come from our end (Aus Post). Electric Guitars are fine (shorter scale), but basses are over the limit. You can still ship via UPS or Fedex, but if you wanna go cheap with USPS, you'll have to unbolt the neck to get it in a smaller box.

    This might help; http://pe.usps.gov/text/imm/immc2_017.htm#ep1893299 (The maximum length for any country not listed in the exceptions (Australia is one of them) is 42", or length and girth combined 79". It used to be 108" which you could just scrape a full scale bass under)

    Rule cma inot effect early last year. Bass guitars are too long so you need to remove the neck and post in a smaller box, it is cheaper that way as well. Regular guitars, even in hard cases fit within the length so they are generally fine. Good to see another Novacastrian too.

    Sorry for the slow response. I have a couple of local buyers who are interested and that would be MUCH easier. Is there some consensus on if this can be shipped to Australia?

    I have pm'd you waxhead.

    At this point all pm's have been answered.

    Currently on hold
     
  13. FYI Int. shipping to Australia is definitely not possible w/o removing the neck. Not difficult though. I've done it a few times.

    Looks like this is available again. See above as I have a fender gig bag available as an alternative to the hardshell case.

    Not a boat anchor. It is average weight, i would guess somewhere between 8 - 9 pounds. I will try to check tonight.
