    Original 4-string Fly Bass from the Massachusetts shop, about 8-9 years old. Never gigged, no dings or scratches. Beautiful AAAAA quilted maple top; original gig bag. Lightweight, responsive and incredibly versatile, with both magnetic and piezo pickups. Signed by Ken Parker (a personal friend) on the headstock. Will send pics to interested parties. $1750/B.O. Trade considered for Steinberger XM-2 or XM-3 in similar condition.

    Sorry-I'm too thick to figure out how to post them. If you can help, you should know they are on my Iphone.

    You need to edit them in an iPad or your computer, it is the image size. The dimensions are on the upload, just change the image size and you will be o.k. Or upload them in photobucket and post the link…

    Several inquiries, but no takers yet. Will consider reasonable offers. Keep in mind that with the signature, this is a potential collector's item.

    Bump. Don't need to sell, but can be flexible to find this amazing instrument a happy home.
     
  12. Nice.

    Double bump - one for this beauty, and another in the hope that someday Ken will do an archtop bass.

    I'm certain he would--for about $35K or so!

    Price drop to $1500 firm, shipped CONUS. If no taker, bass goes back into the storage room.

    I would find a way to make this happen if a D-tune could be fitted to it.
    (they can't- I had one before and it can't happen).
    These are awesome basses.
