    Hey guys. I'm selling my Samuel Shen 3/4 upright bass. It's in very good shape, comes with an adjustable bridge, a fishman pickup, a "bob's bass bag", which is a reallly high quality soft case, and a bow of unknown origin.

    I also have a Fender Squire electric bass guitar and a small Honeytone amp that I'd make a really good deal on if you wanted the lot.

    I'm asking $1800/obo for the upright, we can haggle on the others if you want them.

    I live on the upper east side of Manhattan, a nice neighborhood and about the only place in NYC where you can find a parking space if you'd want to come in from out of town. I don't have a car, though, so I can't deliver.

    Email me if you're interested or for more details.

    Dave, ya sandle-wearing freak. If you'd have bought it before I left VA, it would have saved me a lot of hassle.

    Did I mention that if anyone from the TalkBass forum buys it, I'll throw in a free Fender Squire bass? How's that for a deal?

    Come on, buy my bass. I need that corner for my coat tree.

    I have too many basses as it is, read my signature. Really though, a full-on double bass is just too much for me, space and money being a large part of that. I might buy an EUB in the future though. or at least a FEBGOAS. (copyright Bob Gollihur)

    Sorry I can't help ya - but your thread is getting free bumps this way!

    Email or call anytime, though, freak.

    Just keep those marzipan pigs coming my way and all will be good.

    And in order to justify this post as being "on topic" I'll also mention that I have a small Honeytone practice amp that I can throw in on the deal. I could use that space under my coffee table.

    Ah, monkeybutter. I forgot I was using that email here when I deleted it. Try me at search@atomiclunch.com

    I was wondering why I wasn't getting any emails about it.

    Anyway, I still have the bass. Send me an email.
