Taking into consideration that everything is for sale at the right price, and the fact that I'm not getting any younger, and that my old Orion was much lighter.....current quote generator reads $14,150.00US, so I might let my mint 2003 TO go for $7,500.00US; this way, my girl gets a good home, and I can fund my new Orion. Only thing is, you would have to negotiate the big pond to pick up; I do not feel comfortable shipping an instrument like this to Europe.
See....

Thanks for your consideration,

I know some folks find it is less expensive to fly to the US and pickup their instrument and fly back home with it as part of their luggage. Of course the person takes certain risks with customs by doing this but .....

Anniversary electronics, no leds, Brass backplate, Maple/Purpleheart neck, 34" scale. Bass is in same mint condition as seen in the thread above; it was unused for several years after my 'retirement', but has been used regularly for rehearsal & weekly gigs for the past year. I will get a few pics in the next day or two for you, there are absolutely no issues and she looks as good as she did when she left Santa Rosa (although I think there's a small scratch on the brass backplate from a guitar stand incident)....

Weight is 11.3 lbs.; I am in fairly good shape at age 54, and have no problems with her during a gig (three 55 minute sets), with an Alembic strap. She is well balanced, with no neck dive.

No problem, always willing to help, thanks for the interest. Btw, this is how she looks onstage....

Rarely a gig goes by without someone walking over to comment on her; I get a bit jealous at times.... :-)

Good luck with your search....
Chris
