Woweee! 150? even considering that america has different prices/currency, im almost SURE thats a GREAT deal.

Nice bass too
#11
my more or less rule of thumb for used instruments (not counting ones that have wierd prices: collectors, vintage, good lesser known brand names) is it should be AROUND 60% of new price.

You got it for well under 50%, so for sure a good deal.
#13
the leopard sheets were the first thing i noticed.. AHahahaHa...cool bass tho.. congrats..
#14
you lucky bitch! I had to pay around $200 when I first got the 205.
Damn.

thank you to everyone for your feedback, keep the comments and questions comming, i love talking about my bass.

anyways, to the guy who requested more pics here you go:

head stock, i know the truss rod cover looks cracked but its not, it still has the plastic stuff on it and i tried taking it off with a knife but no luck, i just need to take a pair of twizzers to it.

back of the head stock, at the top it says SR305DX so its defentally a SR305DX. and the hello kitty sticker was put there by my buddy shay cause he's obsessed with hello kitty

fretboard, i know, it needs to be oiled

back of the neck

neck joint

side of neck joint

body, yeah i know i need to clean it

bridge, once again, needs to be cleaned

It could be easily tuned to high B.


SRs are really nice basses, and you got a killer deal.

I just got my SR506 this summer and I love it.

But it comes tuned EADGC, and you could tune it to B but you would have to tune the high C string down to a B.

Wich is only a half step so it can easily be done, But you're right about how it comes tuned.
