The add originally stated that this was a five string Jay Turser. When i met the woman and looked at the bass i stated that the add was written wrong and that i was disappointed that i waited an hour and a half to find out it was not what i expected. She wanted 100 bucks in the add and i said nah and as i was walking away she said i will take 60 dollars for it. Well o.k. my ears perked up. needless to say she looked like she needed some cash right away. So out came three twenties. I got it home cleaned and tweeked it gave it some decent strings. It's playable and i might gig it with a backup. Never do a show with only one bass. I love and hate craigslist. I have six 4 string basses and still need a fiver i will keep searching the list.
