Post subject:  Feeler: thinking of selling a few basses

I'm thinking of selling a couple basses and will post pics once I fully commit to the idea. I just don't have the time for them, and they are more or less just sitting in my bass-ment. I'm wondering how much interest there is on here in:

A righty strung left, JooDee - a rare and extremely well done Japanese lawsuit era Rickenbacker copy. Its hard to find much info on these other than that they were a Matsumoku brand from one of the top reverse engineering [i.e. ripping off famous brands] Japnese luthiers and seem to be a late 70s production. Its from the actual lawsuit era, and includes the stereo jacks. IT sounds as close to an actual ric as any copy I've ever heard. I had it set up upside down - you can reach the top frets upside down, though it has some considerable neck drop. Has some bumps and scars as well. It comes with an original leather case which is in perfect shape - I might even be able to find the Japanese how to play bass book that came with it.

A five string Warwick corvette fretless. I bought this one on here a while back from someone else who liked it but didn't use it. Its a stamp ash body, I believe tiger ebony neck, I think 2007 or 2008, German made. I put limited edition La Bella Game of Death Strings on it, which really bring out the mwah. It also has the rotosounds I took off it, which have plenty of life left in them if the tape wounds aren't you think. It comes with a hard case.

A Carvin LB-76. Other than missing one knob and some white out where the old owner marked frets dots for drop tuning its like new, sounds fantastic, and comes in a nice tweed hard case.

A Schecter 8 string, which I also bought on here, in perfect shape with a soft case.

Since I'm sort of on the fence about selling I'm not really looking for lowball offers, but I thought I'd see if there's much interest in any of these on here.

Did you get the Schecter 8 string from Bill?

Sorry, I didn't realize that anyone had posted a reply, apparently I forgot to check the box. Here are some pictures of the Carvin. I actually posted one of these in the "Southpaw Spotted" section on sale at GC for $699, though that one is walnut I think. I'd probably ask just a bit more for mine, though without tax. I bought the schecter on here a while back, so I think it was probably from Bill, though I don't remember offhand. Actually, Paulo posted an 8 string hell raiser in Southpaw spotted for, I think $450. Again, I'd probably ask a little above that for mine. I'm still thinking about whether to sell or not, but if you're still interested let me know what you were looking to spend. I checked the "notify me when a reply is posted box" so it won't take me three weeks to get back to you this time.

I wouldn't mind a few pics of the Warwick and a price?

Here, I'll put some more pictures in another attachment. As you can see, it has literally no blemishes and has barely been taken out of its case. The previous owner sold it because he never played it, which is why I'm selling it as well. It sounds great, I just don't have the time. I paid $1200 and I think I paid shipping as well, plus $50 for the limited edition LaBella game of death strings. The rotosounds it came with are inside as well, along with the polish and assorted tools that come with it and the original paperwork. You can run the serial number, etc on Warwick's website to confirm authenticity.

I'd like to make back what I paid, which would be $1250 plus shipping. If you are within a reasonable drive of the Boston area we can forgo shipping and just sell it in person.

What ezstep said. That bass represents everything that is great about Warwicks.

Very nice

I am open to best offers though, if anyone is interested. I can probably knock a bit off the price since I never get to play the poor thing.
