I think I found my match! Check out this Yamaha BB414 (left handed) that I found for $200 on Craigslist. Made in 2007, no mods, only played once. Pretty much brand new, and these things go for over $400 new!



I'm in email contact with the seller. It's the real dealz.

Link to sale: http://westernmass.craigslist.org/msg/868977940.html

BACKGROUND: I play guitar (see sig), and I've been wanting to take up bass. Been searching for one for a little while.

Sooo, good deal right? (notice the poll)

sounds like a good deal, but try to play a similar model in a shop so that you can be sure you like it feels.

I played the five string version of this and I liked it for its price. 200 bucks is definitely worth it.
If music was the food of love I'd be a fat romantic slob.

Yes because its only 200$ and the inlays look godly!

Ok thanks guys. I think I just might buy it.

barter it down to $170

Well if I did offer only $170 and the seller accepted, I would feel like I'm ripping her off I mean it's basically brand new! However, the seller would be shipping it from Mass. to California (I pay for shipping of course). I was thinking about maybe offering $220 shipped? That would probably bring the price of the bass down to $180 or so.
