    Please understand that Ernie Ball is the only guitar manufacturer to provide a “For Sale Or Trade” service. This service is also free of charge. It is expected that the rules are strictly adhered to by all posters who use this privilege.

    The rules, set out below, have evolved over time at the collective request of fellow Forum members in an attempt to overcome issues that have arisen from time to time.

    *Sellers, Buyers and Traders are to take full responsibility for their transactions. EB will not accept liability.

    *Disputes will not be mediated nor resolved by EB or Moderators.


    1) Before posting an advert you will need a posting history of at least 25 previous posts throughout the Forum over a period of at least one month. Most importantly, you must be a contributing member of good standing in the forum community. In borderline cases, Moderators will review your posting history and will remove your advert if they deem necessary. 'Serial posting' in an attempt to obtain 25 posts in a short period of time is not allowed.

    2) Only EB/MM items may be advertised.

    3) No advertising for a friend.

    4) In the case of a sale, state the selling price.

    5) Asking for payment by PayPal gift option is not allowed.

    6) Do not link your post to any on-line auction (e.g. Ebay) or to any other media where you may have additionally placed your advert.

    7) No comments please and if you need to compliment, ask/answer questions or negotiate then do so by private mail.

    8) Posts will expire after a month but you are at liberty to re-post your advert after that time if you wish.

    9) Please delete posts when transactions have been finalized.

    Note: Failure to observe any of the above rules will result in automatic deletion of your post and, in some cases, the possibility of being either temporarily or permanently banned.

    I'm looking to trade my Sterling HS bass for a Music Man guitar, since I'm more of a guitarist. Preferably something without a trem.
    The bass has some nicks that I've shown in the pictures. The case exterior is in rough shape but the internal is clean and solid.

    Bongo 6HH For Sale

    Up for sale is my MusicMan Bongo 6HH. It seems like every couple of years, I get the itch to play six string bass. I try for a few months, realize that's not who I am and end up selling the instrument. This here, is my 2019 attempt.

    The bass weighs 10.5 pounds. I'd say the condition is good to very good. It does have a few bumps and dings that I've tried to capture in the pictures. The worst are on the upper edge (facing up while holding the bass in playing position). None of bumps/dings affect the playability or tone.

    The bass comes with the original, hardshell case.

    The price is $1,400 which includes shipping and insurance. No trades please.

    Time to move this bass. Price lowered to $1,200 plus actual shipping charges.

    Stingray Special 5 for sale. Beautiful lightweight instrument. Gorgeous roasted maple neck, 18v pre and aluminum hardware. Strung with a set of new cobalts last week.......

    $1,600 OBO shipped in generic hard case to the lower 48. Paypal is fine. I don't want to ship internationally, but might consider a sale to the UK as I travel there quite frequently.

    I am not the original owner and the bass is in near-perfect condition aside from a couple of very minor dings.

    Please PM me with any questions and for HQ photos.

    Tobacco Burst finish, rosewood board, tort pickguard, piezo bridge (no longer offered by EBMM). In perfect working order. Strung with EB Group II flatwounds and recently set up for these strings. This bass is ready to gig right out of the case, which it comes with. A few nicks, especially on the headstock, which appears to have been lightly gnawed by a confused beaver. Don’t ask me, I bought it like this. One ding on the back of the body, shown in photos. Dunlop straplocks installed but can replace with standard MM buttons if you wish.

    How much for the Bass plus Case, minus the frets ???

    Just jerkin ...... but jerkin aside, having bought many
    piezo MMs myself, I can testify that this is a very fair
    price. And having shipped one to SLO for some work,
    I know the shipping estimate is also reasonable.

    Thank you. Very, very tempting. Based on this forum, it seems like you've had this bass around a month. Do you mind if I ask why the quick turnaround?

    Not at all. I'm really a 5er kind of guy and I find myself with a FLEET of four bangers, none of which get the love they deserve. Plus I really need an Albert Lee guitar so I'm trying to drum up some bucks for that.

    Completely understandable!
