This is a unique bass completely hadmade by the late great Irish luthier Chris Larkin who also was a personal friend of us for years.

Model is ASAP-DBass 5 string.

It has a 300 year old Irish Oak top, sycamore and cedar body, neck is a 9 piece laminate of hard maple, flamed maple and walnut stringers with carbon fibre rods either side of the trussrod, fretboard is rocklite (indistinguishable from ebony; ebony is endangered and Chris was very hot on sustainable manufacturing) , ABM tuners, 18mm string spacing

Strung E-C, 32″ scale, RMC piezos and preamp plus Lace Alumitone pickup.

Controls are Volume and Tone for each pickup. The Piezos sound fantastic and bring an acoustic quality to the sound while the magnetic pickups delivers a standard fretless type of sound. Really cool as you can get that trademark fretless growl as well as a sound that's close to an acoustic bass. Of course you can blend them and that brings a new interesting sound.

The bass is in absolutely mint condition except for a small ding at the back of the body.

Comes with a special case.
