Custom Steinbacker fretless bass
Custom Steinbacker fretless bass, completed recently. You can see my build thread from concept thru completion: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f57/co...2/index11.html
All info is there but to summarize; the body is made of a single slab of Korina w/black binding, a custom etched silver-leaf Gildaxe finish which was exquisitely final-finished by Pat Wilkins/Wilkins Guitars. Pictures do not do it justice. It also has a custom designed/cut pickguard of clear acrylic w/a painted base, and a carbon fiber neck stabilizer plate. The neck is a lined-fretless 24 fret Steinberger USA from the early 90's. The bridge is a Steinberger DB. It has Bartolini pu's (MM at the neck and J at the bridge) and an Aguilar OP-2 9V pre-amp w/an active/passive switch. It is strung w/La Bella double-ball flats, and I will include a single-ball adapter w/round-woundstrings. (attached and installed in minutes) I will include a new hardshell case and a new black leather strap w/Dunlop strap-lock's and shipping (US only) will be free. I will consider sales outside of the US - please contact me and we'll talk. My asking price is $7000. I am selling it to help get my Gildaxe biz started - otherwise I would keep it. It is a very special one-off bass - sounds great and plays like a dream - not another like it anywhere and frankly I won't consider building another. It is signed (by me), dated and numbered and its owner will be included on my Gildaxe.com registry.
Let me know if you have any further questions and thanks for checking it out!
