The Big High End Bass Sell-a-Ton. March Madness Edition!!

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Danny R., Mar 6, 2013.


  1. Once again selling some of the basses I barely play, they need good homes!

    Pavel Jazz Pro Deluxe. This bass is a beast and I don't really want to sell it but darn gas... This one was built for Justin Raines and was completed in Jan. 2012, it was used on the new Israel & New Breed CD/DVD (Jesus At The Center).... Sounds amazing! Alder body, burl Maple top and a really cool green/blue burst finish. Maple neck and flamed Maple fretboard. Aguilar 60's pickups and Aguilar preamp. GONE!


    R-Bass SC6. This is my favorite 6 stringer ever, the neck feels so comfortable. I'm selling it because I developed carpal tunnel..... Mahogany body, Maple tone block, Buckeye burl top, 5A Birds-eye maple board. Nordstrand DC and Aguilar preamp. The bass sounds better than it looks! SOLD!

    Brubaker SC5 Custom Fretless. Maple body, quilted Maple top. Maple neck and Ziricote board with lines (amazing!). Bartolini pickups and 3 band preamp. Best fretless bass I've ever played.... $2300 or best reasonable offer.

    Ken Smith CR5. Quilted Maple wings and Maple core. Maple neck and ebony board (beautiful). $2100.

    MTD 435. Ash (might be Alder!) body, maple neck and board. Great condition and comes in a case. Funk machine! $2500.


    There's a little wiggle room but not much, silly offers will be ignored. Trade value is a little higher. I'm only interested in 5 string basses like neck thru Smiths, NYC Sadowskys, Ritters and Foderas (I can do 2 or 3 depending on what you have). I might be interested in other high end 5ers with wide string spacing. No 4 or 6 bangers please.

    More pics available upon request. Feel free to ask any questions and thanks for looking!

    Original Smith case?
     
  6. Nope, the Smith came to me in a flimsy bag, but I'll ship it in a nice tweed case.
     
  7. PMs replied, lots of interest in the R and Pavel!
     
  8. ...I'll be innerested' in the Smith...
    But my stuff isn't selling.
    Any tips?
    Thanks

    Beautiful pieces, man. Bummer on the Carpel Tunnel. They can fix that, but you may have to give them a couple of these basses to get it done. Good luck!

    I always love your for sale postings, especially the titles. Gets me excited! :hyper: Seriously contemplated buying the Pavel a while back when Pavel had it but then.... I stumbled across a Smith at just the right time. :D

    GLWS!

    Maybe if you play just 4's like us "regular folks" your hands will get better, too.
    Yeah, sorry to hear that, Danny ! You deserve the best life has to offer, my friend.
