    Nothing like buying a bass with hardshell case off eBay ... and seeing it pulled off the UPS truck in no packaging other than the case itself. Nice.
     
  2. :(

    Those hard shell cases are pretty sturdy(at least mine is),but I can imagin your reaction.Was there any damage to the instrument?

    Incidentally,what kind of bass did you buy laker?

    Well this post was a bit delayed... as I got it the other day... but it is a Washburn xb-900 and it rocks. I bought it used for 300 bucks. I am just a novice... but I love the sound that comes out of this bass.

    I also got my Washburn XB-900 on Ebay for the same price you did (about $300, mine is the version with 2 Bartolinis) and I like it a lot. I'm pretty sure you'll be happy with it for a long time, that bass sells new for over $1400 on Musician's Friend. It really is the used bass deal to look for, IMO.
