    hm. I wonder if he'd throw in the red riding hood cookie jars he's selling if you 'buy it now'.
     
  6. I had one of these in fireglo. Big neck but manageable. I couldn't stand the horseshoe cover which you cannot remove (easily at any rate) so I traded it towards my blue Wal Mach III...it was a huge sounding bass though.....

    So look for an old Univox Stereo Bass. As good as a Ric, for a tenth the price.

    I wish I still had mine. It was better than the real Ric that it was supposed to be the backup for.

    That bass has had the horns sanded down to mimic McCartney's. This has seriously affected the price. In fact, this price was high because of the sanding. in my opinion. Look for another---you have to be diligent, but in time you'll probably find one somewhere around this price.

    Perhaps a mute point but the auction doesn't say
    'ended early with buy it now' which I think is what
    appears when someone does use that option.......
