    PRICE DROP to $3000. (I originally posted for $3500 a couple months ago but my thread has since been closed)

    Hi Guys,
    I picked this bass up about a year ago. It is fantastic but unfortunately I lost my day job 3 months ago and the bank account is running low so I'm thinking about selling. I've got about $4500 in her and I'd like to get $3000. If you're local and you would like to check her out PM me. I'll even let you take her on a gig if your a jazzer.

    Andrew down at the String Shop of Arizona has always done the maintenance and let me tell you this is a special bass.
    Many nice upgrades too. This is a true working man's bass. It sounds and plays fantastic, and is ready to gig.

    Fishman Full Circle pickup, adjustable French Despiau bridge, Spiro Mittels, New Endpin, and the previous owner had a very nice thick EBONY fingerboard installed (also done by Andrew at the String Shop of Arizona). Also have a nice bag and stand I will include.

    Measurements are:
    Upper Bout 20"
    Lower Bout 26.5"
    Back 44"
    String Length (nut to bridge) 42"

    I added lots of pics. (I finally figured out how to used my zoom properly and was able to get a nice pic of the finish checking. I love checking on old basses. It just looks kewwwwwl.)
