NBD pawn shop find

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by voodoobassist, May 9, 2019.

  1. Just picked up this little gem for a song! Went in halfway looking for some cheap lawn tools, weed eater, chainsaw, etc , and saw.... this! 6B5FECE2-987C-4BE3-A50E-D68DE62A991E.jpeg CIJ Geddy Lee with case and strap locks. They had a very reasonable price on it, but after some discussion and the promise of paying their asking prices on the lawn equipment if he accepted my offer on the bass, we struck a deal. Just got home with it, popped the neck for a quick truss adjustment, and wow! Low low action, plays and sounds great! First good deal I’ve made in a pawn shop in quite a while. Will get better pics after I edge the lawn and trim some branches!!! :thumbsup:

    I'm 100% jealous. My NBD is not what I wanted but I got it anyway. Your NBD is the one I truly wished :p

    Congrats.....These pawn shops around me are crap!!!

    I haven't seen a good deal in ages.
    I saw a Squire AFN P yesterday for $199, and I told the guy that's what they cost new, and walked out.

  8. Thanks for the kind words. It does look like I’ll be taking at least one of the lawn tools back though. Weed eater won’t run for doodley. Chainsaw is taxing me as well. About pulled my arm outta socket getting it to start.

    I dunno nuffin about Jazz bass, but I promise you that a cheap used chain saw is nothing but pain and suffering...never worthwhile.

  12. My favorite Jazz bass. I have an 03, put a red tortoise shell pick guard on it.
    I want a sunburst one too.

    Very nice. Being a lefty, the pawn shops are nearly useless to me.

    IMO the Geddy is one of the best basses they ever made.

    I know it’s rude to ask, but what did you pay? We need numbers so we can be appropriately jealous!:D
