About This Listing

From my Private Bass Guitar Collection...


Available is the coveted serial #3 short scale Clarke Spellbinder ( a personal bass of Stanley Clarke ) with original hard-shell case.

The 70's was a busy decade for Lieber Instruments. In 1979, Stanley Clarke became the proud owner of a custom Spider Grinder acoustic bass. At that time, Stanley was also playing Rick Turner's first graphite neck, through body, Alembic electric bass. Stanley loved the graphite neck, and felt that an all composite bass was the way to go. He commissioned Tom to design such a bass.
Stanley approved the design and Tom built a prototype guitar which required four patents to handle the innovations. Stanley loved the bass, and in a joint venture, Tom and Stanley formed the Spellbinder Corporation in 1980. Spellbinder produced a limited edition run of fifty spellbinder basses. One additional custom left-handed version was built at Stanley's request, as a personal gift from Stanley to Paul McCartney. The run was a success and, as planned, the Spellbinder molds were destroyed to insure the instrument's value.
Serious inquiries only please.
