    All of the BX-1’s are about the same price, within a hundred or so. $750 to $850 including shipping. And the issue is, this bass was only made for two years in 1985 and 86, the narrow case made for it is far more rare than the guitar. The one is Russia includes the case, with the Yamaha badge on it. It may be difficult to find a narrow case like that, most all aftermarket cases are designed around the P Bass or Jazz Bass shape. A few of the Japanese sellers concern me, one I see has pumped up his own feedback by buying $0.06 cent bags of tea from himself, creating a hundred positive feedbacks. Another posted pics of two different basses, accidentally included a photo of a bass being sold by another seller! The only difference being the knobs and string locks. I emailed him and asked which one he was selling, no response. I often send a message with a silly question just to see how the seller responds. If he blows it off and does not respond, I don’t want to do business with him.

    The guitar sat there for two months, and the minute I make a bid to buy it, the bloke says itís already sold, but he has a lessor one he will sell me for the same price. With no case and a huge chip on the bottom corner. Maybe it happened the way he claimed, but it sure seems suspicious.
