I had this bass for sale here about 18 months ago as I was leaving nyc but didn't have time to complete a transaction. Now I'm back in nyc and this one's back on the block, another year older and wiser. Rather than re-list it, here's a link to the old ad: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=318124 I'll keep the price at the same level I had it at last year, even thought the dollar has devalued and the bass is now more vintage. I'll be less open to haggling than before, but will still entertain offers. nyc offers with local pickup welcome and encouraged, but I'll ship too. No trades.
