    G&L Tribute SB-2. This bass is less than a year old and rarely played. No scratches, dents or dings anywhere. Midnight Wine color. Purchased new from Beat Street Music. www.beatstreetmusic.com This bass is a rarity because the Midnight Wine color was only supposed to have a white pearloid pickguard. This one was shipped from the factory with a single ply black pickguard. It looks OK but a B/W/B 3-ply would look better.

    I had the bass modified from two volume only controls to two stacked knobs for volume and tone. It's a very LOUD bass for being passive and I can get a sweet classic P tone or blend in the bridge jazz p'up for variety.

    This is a great bass but I have my eye on something else so this one must go. Asking $450 plus shipping. (Price dropped from original post.) I'm willing to ship internationally but you must deal with your own taxes, tariffs, government bribes or whatever. I accept PayPal or US POSTAL money orders only. (These are money orders actually purchased at a US Post Office.)

    I realize I have a zero rating here on TalkBass but have never sold anything here. I have had several good transactions both at Harmony Central and eBassist as well as 100% feedback on eBay.

    The bass also comes with a really nice G&L padded gigbag.

    In the interest of full disclosure, the volumes on the stacked knobs reach their full volume around the 3/4 mark and then begin to diminish again as you turn them towards full. I've never considered it an issue as I'm a set it and forget it kind of guy and it doesn't really affect the bass in any way.

    Will also consider for straight trades:

    Cort Curbow 4 string w/Barts and case in either Black or CAR

    Fender Jaguar bass (I know it's a long shot but I really want one!)

    Edit: Very possibly a T-40 in primo shape. Must have the rosewood fretboard.

    Of course, the $450 plus shipping option still applies. :hyper:

    Not sure on the weight because I don't have access to a scale of any sort right now. It doesn't seem overly heavy to me but I used to play a T-40 so ??

    Would also be interested in a bass copy from that company that begins with R and is very zealous about protecting their copyright. (Hint: It's Not a Rogue. :D )
