F/S Pete Hilton 5-String, MINT condition
For sale is an outstanding mint-condition 36" scale 5-string from luthier Pete Hilton whom many of you may know is Carl Thompson's senior builder. In many respects, his basses resemble Carl's in terms of balance, tone, electronics, and the craftsmanship is unbelievable.
Fingerboard: Pau Ferro
Neck: Striped African Mahogany
Body: soft maple with Bocote and Ziricote top.
Pickups: Kent Armstrong soapbars with Ziricote pickup covers
Hipshot Bridge and Tuners
Electronics: passive with volume and tone knobs, three way pickup selector switch, and filter switch.
Truly sad to have to let go of an instrument of this caliber but have to pay the bills.
I'm asking for $5500 or best offer. Comes with a padded Levi gig bag.
Buyer pays for shipping. Paypal is ok. US only please.
Please PM me with addy and I will post additional photos for review.
Bump for a Beautiful Bass and a great builder , People will here more from him now he has opened his own shop in Calif. GLWTS
Thanks for the bump.
I like Pete a lot. Very nice guy and very easy to work with. I don't think I have to say much about what he is capable of - builds master grade instruments. I just checked out his updated site. Very cool.
In the interest of selling I will drop this to what he is listing for a standard 5-string price of $5100. It could also be I misremembered how much I spent on this but my memory is not what it used to be - FS for $5100.
I have owned several of Pete's basses. He is a great guy, and a dear friend of mine. I will vouch for the quality of these basses. Consistently way better than most!!!!
Price drop $4950 - give this bass a nice home!
Price drop $4800 or best offer.
