    Greetings, bass shoppers. What we have here is a wonderful P-Classic of the 1956 single-coil variety. This is my first Moollon, and now I get what the hype is about - this is a classic thump machine. Why am I selling? I have discovered that I am more of a split-coil P-guy after all. So, in trades I might be interested in the following:
    • Moollon P-Classic of the more common split-coil variety. I particularly like relic basses and matching headstocks.
    • Fender Custom Shop Postmodern Precision (the one with the Jazz neck) plus some cash from me.
    Bonus points if the trade can be done in person here in the US Northeast. However, I'll warn potential traders that I am much more interested in a cash sale than a trade.

    The bass has a few minor dings in the nitro finish - I have provided close-ups of the noticeable flaws in the photos.

    The bass comes with an extra tort pickguard, Moollon-branded strap and polishing cloth, a couple of stickers, and the great-condition hard case (with keys!) pictured. I have also added a Zero-Mod thumb rest and installed an old set of TI flats. The thumb rest ($47 upgrade) can easily be removed by me or you with zero modifications to the bass (hence the company name.) I liked it, as there is now a place to anchor your thumb that doesn't exist on this style of bass normally. Again, it and the TI flats are included. Weight is 8 lb. 5 oz. on an accurate postal scale. Nut width is 1.65".

    $2500 shipped CONUS via UPS insured, signature required; $2350 in-person cash deal.
