    This is my second Tacoma Thunderchief up for sale, it’s in player condition and has a factory pickup. It was purchased used from a dealer with the serial obscured for some reason. I had a deputy friend run the serial through NCIC, but it wasn't listed as being stolen. When it arrived the headstock was broken off; it took a few years to find a replacement neck (with binding, no less) and have my guy install it. (These are bolt necks, remember.) At that time the tuner holes were also reamed for a set of larger post Hipshot Ultralights (real, not licensed.) This one has a few minor scars that I've tried to illustrate - let me know if you want more pics of any part. It has the original HSC, too. Currently wearing LaBella tapes which IMO are the best ABG strings out there. Here’s your chance for a great player example of one of the best ABGs ever made! Reduced to $1000 plus shipping at actual cost; cashier’s check or USPS MO required since I’ve been fighting with PayPal. No trades, please.

    You list the price as $1200 but then say it's $1400 plus shipping actual cost. What is your bottom line price?
    Do you know how this bass performs strung with a high C?

    Whoops, typo! $1200 plus shipping at actual cost is correct, I’m fixing that now - thanks for pointing it out.

    No idea about a high C, but I assume it would be fine. There are other Tacoma owners on here that could probably comment.

    I've had three 'Chiefs in the past and they are the absolute best sounding and loudest production model ABGs ever made. Very inspiring to play!

    I’ve had three including these two, and I have to admit it’s hard to let them go. I’ve been dragging my heels about selling them for months...

    Yes, I concur-- mine's tune E-C with TI Acousticore strings, very natural woody tones with these strings on it. No problem running E-C.
