    Not sure of the body alone but the whole bass is just under 10lbs.

    Great looking bass. I usually don't like Gecko's but this one is very nice.

    If your deal falls through I'll take the neck!!
     
  10. If the deal falls through and the neck is sold, I may take the body and electronics. Keeping an eye on it...

    I should've kept that body - still haven't completed it's <3lb. replacement.

    Lol, sorry to be the guy that kills your excitement, but I'm currently sitting in the parking lot of our meeting spot (yay for the mobile app) with cash in hand. It's soon to be mine! :)

    I may have some questions for you LFG, so you may have some PM's coming.
     
  13. Cool. Congrats! PM me whenever.

    And take good care of that Walnut body... My wife bought it for me for Christmas 10 years ago (knowing that I would modify it) when we were just graduating from college and had no money. I did sell it with her blessing, so it's ok.

    Yes...she is sold. I didn't think there was a lot of interest in the Geckos. Otherwise I would have posted the whole bass for sale in the bass guitar section. There have been a few up for sale in recent weeks that went nowhere. This was my second. I'll definitely build more.
