    Is that photobucket link working? I can get more pics if you need. Yes, I'm open to trades.
     
  5. what kind of basses might you be interested in?
    and 2 questions-
    -what is the string spacing in mm (if you know)
    - is that an amber stain, or is that natural? The pic dosen't really
    show the color that well.

    It's an amber stain. Unfortunately, the flash on my camera washes it out a bit. Parker makes some pretty amazing finishes. In mm, the string spacing is 17mm. At this point, I'm interested in a Ken Smith 5 string.
     
  7. oh, unfortunately, all i have to offer is a Pedulla Thunderbass ET5
