    I recently bought this bass and love it but being primarily a 4 string player I just can't marry to the wide board and 19mm string spacing. I thought this would be something I'd get used to but I just am not a fan (I'm sure if I spent more time playing 5's I would but as it stands I just find my 18mm Fender a lot more comfortable).

    The bass is typical Metro RV5 specs with the exception that the previous owner had a set of Nordstrand NJ5 hum canceling pick ups installed and a non original bag.

    The neck is good and straight and truss rod functions as it is supposed to. The frets have no visible wear. There are a few minor nicks and scratches but nothing that stands out. It weighs 9.3lbs according to a non digital bathroom scale, I'm sure that's not exact but it feels very light and balances very well.

    My only real trade interests are for a 4 string Metro RV/MV/UV70 but feel free to send me an offer. Edit: '63 AVRI P in Sonic blue added to trade interests.

    Trades are limited to Canada but will sell internationally at buyers expense.

    Texas is somewhat close, right? Is G&L something you could consider?

    I would most certainly consider G&L but the problem with trading across borders is we get stung with crazy taxes up here which is why if I'm trading it I want to keep it inside of Canada, sorry.

    Edit: A '63 AVRI P in sonic blue might allow me to let the taxes slide though if you happen thave one :p
