    I was back and forth about selling but I have another bass coming in so this one is the "odd man out".

    $299 shipped conus SOLD!!!

    First version of the BB basses. These actually said "BroadBass" on the headstock. This one is light and resonant. It comes in at around 9 pounds with a killer flame maple neck.

    Serial is very early with #001111.
    Tuners are super smooth Gotoh(japan)fender style.
    The bass shows age with some bumps but it's a honey and everything is totally functional.
