About This Listing

Beautiful bass.  Plays great, looks great.  Just not the sound I'm looking for so I'm selling it.  Bass in video not this exact bass, but not a bad video to check out if you're unfamiliar with this brand.  Come with gigbag as shown in photos.  $1750 is a crazy deal for a bass of this stature.

This bass was slightly damaged when shipped to the previous owner.  Most of the pictures came from his listing - they're way better than anything I would have taken.  He had this to say about the shipping damage:

"During shipping both the bottom (near jack) and top of body suffered, most likely, some impact damage (pictures show the two damage areas). At first I thought it was simply cosmetic (It really isn't noticeable unless you know it's there). Then I plugged it in and the bridge pickup kept crackling and shorting out. I took it to a very talented luthier and he discovered a ground connection inside the control cavity was coming loose (from the impact). He went through the entire circuit board and that was the only thing wrong so it was a simple fix. I wanted to have full disclosure for you with this instrument.

* Exhibition grade Saint Martin Red over a gorgeous Black Limba body
* Gorgeous Zebrano fretboard
* Cocobolo headstock
* Delano pickups
* Combe pre amp (huge sound and range)
* 18mm string spacing
* 34" scale
* EXTREMELY comfortable, flame maple butter
* 57mm at nut / 88mm at 24th fret
* Controls - Bottom row you have bass/mid/treble (boost/cut)
- Top row you have volume and pickup balance
- Switch on left is single coil / dual coil
- Switch on right is active / passive
- 9.8lbs on my bathroom scale

All the "tone" comments about this instrument are spot on...very organic and woody. Active with dual coils activated shake the walls. Passive is soooo sweet. Warm all the way to very burpy, jazz bass tone on bridge pickup."
