    Alot of money, but that bass sure is in good nick, I have seen a fair bit of Andy Baxters stuff, he aint cheap but he always has really nice quality vintage gear and a nice selection of Rays to!

    I think it's already sold.

    I had spoken to Andy (nice Guy) about $$$ and more pics etc etc and then...nothing more.

    I'm happy with my B005*** Ray. If I had that "first" Ray I had to fear thieves or so...
    Happy with my Ray since 1979

    Wow! Definitely wouldn't be one to take out for gigs, that's for sure. When I hit Powerball and open my Bass Museum, maybe I'll buy it. For now, I'll have to stick with my Classic.

    i think its kinda steep considering gc platinum wanted 10.000$ for it

    but i understand that what the market wants to pay decides what it is worth..

    MrM
    flats for the bongo!
    roundwounds for the fretless!

    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses

    Reportedly it was sold twice, and a little later put up again at higher prices.
    I don't know whether that means people paid for it, only to try and sell it right away, or that people pushed the "buy" button without being able to pay.

    best,

    Got a 1+2 on Eurojackpot ...still not enough (about 10 euros, or let's say 12 US bucks)

    Next week is my turn for higher score, ...well, I hope!
