If anyone out there knows someone who, or is interested in buying a Europa Custom 5 string, please help me out. It has a Buckeye Burl top, series I headstock/ with the Burl on front and back of the stock, 3 PH lamintes, Gold Hardware...Its Execellent. Built in 2004. Will come with HSC, papers,wrenches, strap locks. I have been relocated from New Orleans since Katrina, and my funds have dried up severely. I would appreciate getting a fair price for it and that would help to dry my tears as I hate to sell my baby. I do have faith that I will get back on my feet and when I do, I will order another just like this one. Please call at 504-914-6408(c) if anyone out there can help. I'd like to see 4.7-5.5k or anything better. I listed this bass on eBay with much regret. Please assist me in taking shutting down the listing selling it to a true Alembic Collector. Email me, and I'll send you some pics(musicmanstan@yahoo.com)
Best Regards,
Stan

Stan, where are you living now? Jobs are plentiful in Las Vegas, and the weather is better than most places -though hot in the Summer. You can also obtain cheap temporary housing.

I'm not in a position to promise anything, but it's possible I might be able to help you get situated here if it's something you want to consider.

Be advised that if you reply off-site, I don't check my email often -so if you respond privately, give me a heads up.

I'm a poor f@#k myself, not a connected big-shot or anything, but I've lived here a while, and know the town. It's relatively easy to get started here, compared to most places. If you're down and out, and you can afford a bus ticket here, there is more opportunity here than most places.

I sure hope you don't have to sell your bass, but I understand sometimes desperate measure are necessary. I'd be very cautious dealing with scam-bay. I've had a bad experience with them, and would NEVER consider dealing with them again.

Take care, best wishes, Mark

P.S. Since you're apparently new to the site, I'll advise you that -if you must sell your bass- you'll have a better chance of getting peoples attention if you post in in the "Swap Shop and Wish Lists" area -which is below the "Introductions" section here.

This is where people normal post/look to buy/sell instruments... so you'd stand a much better chance of getting prospective buyers to notice your instrument there.

Is that the Signature electronic package on your Europa?
