nice photo's shaun Smile

have a wee look on ebay at the completed listings, it will give you an idea of current selling prices, NOT asking prices.

Love the wood grain on that baby....

For parts... Standard brass bridge,,, Look for Dimarzio parts, they had everything in brass....Take a look on ebay... same for the pots, reg stuf .. the brass knobs are going to be harder to come by...

If it appears in a completed listing search and the dollar amount is green in color then that is what it sold for...

I mean most of the Westone basses I see on ebay are at 200-300% what i can get for them at GC or music go round, ect. and have been up there for a very long time because they're asking so much. Example the concord on there for 279, vs. one on MGR for 99 + shipping.

The U.S. eBay anyway, i see decent prices in the UK but they won't ship Sad

True 'dat, EvilV. Smile

Ebay seems to bring out the unrealist (or is it surrealist) in almost everyone. By far the largest gathering of potential buyers but that still doesn't mean they are all falling over each other to hand over their cash.

Start it at 99 and let her ride I say. If the quality is there it will shine through in the end.
