Trade Bait: Fender American Deluxe Precision 5 Ash-White Blonde

    I just got this bass a few months ago and it's my first five string and although I love this bass I just don't like having the B string. So I've decided to get another 4 string and I'd like to trade for one. There is only one snag which is why I'm calling this trade bait, I found this bass while visiting a friend and he bought it for me and held it for a month while I sold two basses to gather the money for it so I have to offer it back to him first just because he did such a nice thing for me but if he doesn't want to buy it back I'm getting rid of it. I'll know in a day or two whether or not he wants to buy it back.

    Here's some specs on the bass:
    -2000 MIA Fender Deluxe Precision Bass
    -Ash Body
    -White Blonde finish (gorgeous finsih, you can see a bit of wood grain through the finish--this finish has been discontinued)
    -Almost mint condition (just one blemish about 1/4" on top curve on front of body, barely noticeable)
    -3 band eq run by one 9V
    -5 on one side tuners (new versions have 4 + 1 tuners)

    I've got pics attached, the pic of the blemish is hard to see because the blemish is really small and it doesn't show up well on the white finish (especially when taking pictures).

    Here's what I'm looking for (all 4 stringers of course) that I'd trade straight up for:

    G&L L2000

    Ernie Ball Bongo

    Fender American Deluxe P

    Rickenbacker 4003

    Ernie Ball Stingray or Sterling

    Lakland Skyline 44-02

    They are roughly in order of my preference, with the L2000 being at the top of the list. If you have any other basses you think I may like (no Fenders I don't have listed though) make me an offer.

    Here are some other basses I would consider trading for along with some cash or other gear (I'll consider bass or drum gear):

    G&L Tribute L2000

    Fender Aerodyne Jazz

    Lakland Skyline 44-01

    Just post here, PM me, or email me (wownirvana@aol.com) with any offers~Josh

    Ok, so I suck at pics. Trying to post them didn't work and the links I left made the pictures small. Last try for the links with decent sized pictures (actually they're really big so they're gonna look kinda funky but its the best I can do with the amount of sleep I have) and the posting yet again:

    Turns out my friend wants to buy the bass back so I can't trade it for anything (unfortunately). Oh well I'm gonna be on the lookout to buy a cheap bass pretty soon or if he doesn't buy it from me in 2 months it'll be back up for trade~Josh
