Chapparal MAX Bass on the 'Bay

Recommended Posts

Yes...it's in Japan.  Yes...there are multiple sellers hawking a bass they don't physically hold.

BUT - it's a MAX Bass, and if you're able to track down the actual seller, you might be able to score a killer, rare bass.

Incidentally, this one was in the same batch as mine - it's #923791 and mine is #923793.

Price is pretty optimistic.

I miss my Chap Max. Wish I got that kinda cash for it.

Actually, I miss the boomers most!

I've seen Chap bass's  before, what makes the Maxx different?

I hate when the seller of a gorgeous Bass or Guitar doesn't include any pictures of the entire instrument!

A different way to say Custom?  Set neck, maple body, ebony board, and boomers.

Add to that their being rare enough that you've been a member here eight years and have never heard of one, and you get excitement.

"The fingerboard may be cracked"...WTF?  A picture of the suspicion would be nice.

One of my Chaparral basses has a quilted maple body just like the Chaparral Max, but it has a rosewood fretboard with dots.  The maple Hamer used resonates nicely.

Noice!  My Chap Max has huge neck...a massive P bass neck profile.
