  1. Putting out a feeler for a bass. Looking to BUY a cheap bass for jazz gigs. A solid, worry-free bass that I don't have to stress over at a bar. Less than $3,000.

    Local sale only - CT, MA, RI, Eastern NY (NYC)

    Used Shen SB-150 for around $1,500 would be perfect.

    Ideal factors:

    3/4 size (small 7/8 ok, but not preferred)
    Hybrid or Ply/Laminate
    would consider old, rough-looking carved bass for the right price - MUST be solid condition
    big, loud sound
    dark finish preferred

    That's it! PM me if you're in CT, MA, RI or NY and have something like this.

  3. DHoss gave me a great resource locally, but I've still got my eyes peeled for any on Talkbass!
  4. Bad timing! I just sold my pristine Shen Rogeri Willow to a buddy for $3k.
  5. Hey, Thanks KungFu, but I'm actually looking for a beater bass. I'd be too worried about a carved instrument, and I want something to play at bars. Strange as it is to say, your Shen Rogeri is too nice for this!

    Besides, it's probably comparable to my Shen "Strelau", which serves another purpose. Thanks for thinking of me, though!

    Try String Emporium, they'll ship it to you and their hybrids sound quite good ...
  7. Ended up buying a Shen SB88 from Mark Leue. He really took good care of me.

    Thanks for your help guys, I'm closing the thread!
