"Al's Audio Barn" wouldn't steer you wrong... The modules are worth the opening bid and shipping.

though judging by how long it's taking me to get my xv3g and holed corsair completed, it could be a few years :)

Someone probably talked the seller into splitting it up, I bet it gets listed again without the modules.

I hope that's the case... :) I don't care about the modules :)

Not the case unfortunately... seller has chopped Bass into about ten auctions, down to the MPC edge card connectors, and is asking ridiculous amount for these parts. Example: $45 for 4 knobs that have traces of spray paint on them still. I guess we knew it was too good to be true. Just to stand on my soapbox for a moment, I really hate when guitars get parted out, total money grab in most instances, greed is so unattractive.

IMO it is beyond repair. I don't think some of the parts are too much for ie five way for 9.95 I wouldn't take a chance on those modules for more than $40

I bid on the body, but got outbid... I had thought about resurrecting it as a headless MPC, but just don't have time for it. Still have 2 other projects that I've been working on for 2+ years :)
