    Hi all,

    I'm selling a used Yamaha BB-N5A, Near Mint Condition!
    I took this bass in on partial trade from Sean for the buckeye burl top SC-1 he purchased from me, so I am therefore selling it. It is in mint condition with the exception of a very small chip in the finish on the rear of the bass right near the output jack. I did a setup on it for Sean about 8 months ago, and therefore I'm familiar with the bass and as such was willing to take it in on partial trade for one of my customs.

    It has a 3 piece maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with block inlays, an alder body with a carved maple top, active electronics and gold hardware.

    I'm asking $500 for it, which includes shipping and insurance, and a very nice Fender gig bag.

    (those aren't chips on the edges, they're reflections from the light...)

    Hey SnoBassMan, reply PM sent back...

    JuggHaid, not sure. I took this bass in on partial trade for one of my custom single cuts, but anything is possible I guess. Whatcha got?

    Ya know, I've got a whole bunch of PA and recording equipment, and would MORE than willing to throw some of that in along with this bass for a Rick 4001 or 4003, especially a burgundy glow, autumn glow, or maybe even a blue one. I had a Ricky years ago that was stolen and I've always wanted another one. And actually, if I could find one that is not in such great shape (scrapes, scratches, bare wood, modifications to electronics or hardware are all fine...) that would be even better! I prefer `em to show wear from being gigged vs. being in pristine shape...

    Bump....

    $500 total, shipping and insurance included, and I'll even throw in a new set of Ken Smith Stainless Steel Rockmasters, .045 - .130.
