My first bass was an Electra/Westone Phoenix X650JB I bought in 1984. I lost this bass in the early '90's and have missed it daily. Anyone know where I can get another?

I saw that one and have been thinking about it. Any idea how it compares to the x650jb and what would be a fair price for it?

I believe it's the same as the x-650. active electronics, it just has the 2 necks....

I'm just trying to get out of it what I spent because of another that I picked up.....

a while back the natural and sunburst active ones were going for around $300, but recently they've dipped back down

Is the nut missing on the fretted neck? If so, do you have it? What kind of shape is the finish in? I saw the dings around the truss adjustment notch, anything else? I'm really interested in this bass.

yeah, the nut is missing. I do not have it. it was missing when I got it. the finsih has some pick scratchings in it, and the dings around the TR adjuster.

Still loking for an '84 X650JB. Preferably in Good Condition bodywise. Electronics can always be fixed or changed.

darn, missed it again. I guess I need to make more time to get on here and catch it. I wonder if it has been sold or if it will be back up there.
