    Isn't she lovely? I got if off Ebay as a "factory second" for $129 plus $40 shipping, and it has a great sound! It's a Jay Turser.

    That's one nice looking bass you got yourself there Bob. What was wrong with it to make it a "second"? It looks perfect.

    The only things I can see is almost imperceptible wear on the back (like it was a floor model) and the pickup is pushed in slightly on one side. I've had really good luck with "blemished" and "seconds" basses.

    Along with that sweet deal on a Turser, I also just got a "closeout special" at the local Sam Ash on a new pearl black Yamaha BB614 for $300 (currently selling at MF for $450), and on ebay a 1x15 Mesa-Boogie cab for $150!!!
