USMusic bass on ebay.
« on: January 24, 2014, 09:05:54 AM »
I see there is a made in Illinois 5 string on ebay now, $2699.  Good luck to them.  I picked up one of the real 4 strings made in Wilmington a while back.  Incredible bass.

What makes you think this isn't an original? I think the USA in the auction title just means American made and not necessarily US Music made.

Great to see you still posting, Marvin!

What tells you that this isn't a Wilmington made instrument? I was under the impression that it was in fact an original and I had a decent level of interest. If not, I'd love to be enlightened.

He's correct, this is a US Music bass as the serial starts with a 092. See here: http://forums.parkerguitars.com/index.php/topic,14475.0.html
