Rare, American made TBC USA (pre-China) bass, from when they were hand building high-end MM Stingray-style basses and doing them right. Street price on these were over $1K when new. I already own a TBC USA 5, so tentatively putting this up for sale...love the superfast Jazz style neck with 1.5" nut, which I haven't found on any other TBC USA basses. At 8 lbs, 6 oz, it's also the lightest TBC USA I've owned. I don't like the plain black look and love Stingrays, so I took an old EBMM pickguard I had from a previous bass (light warp, chip on the edge) and custom cut it with my Dremel. First try at cutting a pickguard but it came out pretty good, IMHO (patting myself on the back). I haven't drilled mounting holes into the body, just in case the new owner wants it unmolested, but I will include the pickguard and screws. Also going to try and heat/clamp out the warp. You could always use the pickguard as a template for getting a new, custom one made. The bass is in Very Good Condition; just a finish chip on the back and some light nicks on the body edges and headstock. Back of the neck has one little nick on the treble/underside and some normal thumbnail scratches but otherwise very clean, fingerboard and frets are in excellent shape. Just oiled/cleaned the board and restrung it with some fresh strings. Action is nice and very low (setup with very little relief for a light touch player). Specs: Body: Alder Neck: Maple, 34" Scale Nut: 1.5" Fingerboard: Rosewood, 22 frets Bridge: Chrome Gotoh Style Tuners: Chrome open gear Pickup: Single MM-Style Humbucker (w/ears) Electronics: Volume, Active 2-band EQ (9V) Finish: Gloss Black Weight: 8 lbs, 6 oz. Selling for $425 shipped in the US w/non-matching gig bag. International shipping is no problem, just PM for quote. Trades considered (will look at anything, but mostly looking for 34" Scale 5-strings).
