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.
