1996 fretless Cruise bass with 2 Tek bridge. Excellent condition. I can't find a scratch or ding on it. No wear on the ebony fretboard. Very clean. With original Hamer case in great condition. The bass was used in my smoke free home studio and kept in its case. $750. US lower 48 only.

A long shot I know, but if anyone knows of any such parts lying around anywhere, I'd be very interested in buying them. I wouldn't mind getting the period-
Hi, I recently purchased a used 12-string bass made in 1995 (picture attached). I can't confirm this with 100% certainty, but I'm fairly certain there were some after-market modifications made to the bass that I'd sort of like to unwind. I'm posting here because I'm hoping that somebody who has some experience with 12-string basses can review this post and offer advice, encouragement...or discouragement if I'm about to do something irretrievably stupid. In addition to the standard three pots (one volume for each pickup, then one overall tone knob), there is a 3-position pickup switch, and th
