So, in our desperation and old age we tend to settle..... now what do you think the chances are of this guy accepting a reasonable offer (the last one on ebay , black, which is nicer than this clown burst, went for US$500  = CA$640):

Gee, I never saw a "hallow" body bass before.

I wonder if it's really hallowed, or just pretty devout?  :P
Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

That's one tip off, I thought, that the seller won't listen to reason.

$1000 for a 90s reissue? IIRC the consensus on these were that they weren't very good without modding. Hallowed or not, I wouldn't offer half that.

That's what I thought, Dave.  Thanks for the confirm.

Figure a pickup swap/electronics tweak will take care of it.

Good luck with your offer. You never know, he might be reasonable.
