    Due to health issues I am selling this fine bass as it is too heavy for me. I am now forced to play basses less than 8-9 pounds. This one is 10 or so pounds, I do not have a decent scale but my back says it is too much for me. I got this in a trade deal here on TB and really like the way it sounds and plays. World famous Status quality and tone, low action and phenomenal neck stability. This bass doesn't have the sterile graphite tone unless you dial it in for that with the unique EQ. The pickups are single coil with hum cancelling coils in humbucker housings. Comes with a high quality non Status hard shell case. The cash price includes shipping. Willing to trade for/towards a Zon Sonus 4 or bass less than 9 lbs.. I am including a link to the trade deal listing I got the bass from and the pictures are from that thread by @bassman28. Will try to get fresh pictures up as soon as possible, the bass is in the same shape I received it in. Start a conversation if you are interested.
    Peace all,
    Mike

    Hello!
    Have I got the bass for you!
    I have a gorgeous Vigier Passion bass.
    Super slim neck, no truss Rod as neck is Maple / Graphite, I have owned Status basses in the past so if love those you'll love this quality.
    Bass is 8.1 lbs. It's a wonderful fast neck with super low action! 3 band eq. 18 volt.
    Great formfit Hiscox hard case ( same as Status uses)... my bass sells for $3400. street price.
    See pics...
    I'm up for the trade if you are my friend.
    My cell: 480-621-9811 I'm in Phoenix, AZ.

    Apologies sir, I thank you for your offer but I worked out a trade deal on a Modulus for this bass a few minutes before your post.
    Cheers,
    Mike

    I will keep you in mind. But I have dealt with this person before and he is very solid on deals with him. Besides I am getting a five string, something I need in my kit. The Hohner Jackbass 5 in my profile is very heavy, needs a refret and some TLC.
