First off, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
My New Years resolution this year is to scale back on my gear and keep only what I play on a regular basis, that being said, I’m offering up one of my Martin Keith Elfin 4’s.
For those of you who are not familiar with Martin Keith, he has been building custom guitars and basses with Joe Veillette of Veillette Guitars for more than 13 years and has his own line of custom guitars and basses. Here’s a link to his website: http://www.martinkeithguitars.com/index.shtml
This one has a beautiful figured Maple top and matching headstock, Wenge fretboard, a Nordstrand MM4.2 pickup (that’s located in the MM sweet spot), a John East MMSR 3 band preamp, and a Hipshot/Gotoh De-tuner in a bass that weighs in at a mere 6.9lbs. It’s in beautiful condition (9+/10) with only some slight scuffing above the pickup where your thumb contacts the bass, it plays fantastic and comes with Martin's standard Levy's gig bag.

I purchased this brand new from Martin 9 months ago when I was waiting for my custom Elfin 4 to be built, which is now my main player. Build times for these basses are somewhere in the range of 3 to 4 months or more and have a street price of $2900+.
shipped to anywhere in the CONUS, sorry no international sales, PayPal accepted. Local pickup is also available.
I would consider trades for a micro amp and cash, preferably an Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 or 4 & 5 string jazz basses (+ or - cash).
Thanks for looking!
