For those that may not have seen this on the other thread, I attempted to sell this guitar on ebay for $2,125 and all I got was a slew of questions and emailing people additional photos and taking more photos only to have no one with enough money to buy it. I want $2000 in my pocket after shipping and payment fees. Below is the ebay listing so you can see the pictures but first here are the details of this bass emailed to me directly from Alembic:

Elan 4-string bass all maple
3 piece neck
Inline peghead
Medium scale 32"
Chrome Gotoh machine heads
Precision pickups, neck & bridge
Spoiler electronics
Black finish front & back of body
Black finish font of peghead
Clear satin finish back of peghead and neck

Replacement value $9,450.

And here are the pictures at the ebay link:


Before you throw offers. I had an offer from out of state for $1500 before I even listed it on ebay form a guy that saw it on my local Craigslist. Hopefully someone on here can appreciate it enough to buy it. I hope I am not coming off as rude anywhere in this message.

It was sold, guys. I got the $2000 plus the shipping and payal fee amount on top of that like I wanted. One guy here said that I really had to keep the price at $1500 for that particular bass. He was partially right. It seems U.S. buyers had that as their maximum. The guys willing to give up the 2K (including the one guy here willing to give up 2 Alembics for my one) are in other countries. One is in England, two are in Holland and the one who bought it is in Mexico. He had me ship it to California and someone from there sent it to him to Mexico. Actually it seems as if someone flew there to visit and took it to him.

I admit I had to be patient and had to do a bit of footwork to get it sold for what I wanted.
