FS/FT Pete Hilton Custom 5 String *Stunning & Mint*
Absolutely stellar and gorgeous Pete Hilton 5 string bass. From top to bootom this bass is unique, beautiful and displays some of the most exquisite craftsmanship that I have had my hands on. A little bit of backstory on Pete, he studied under the great Carl Thompson and had an absolute passion for making great basses. He recently relocated from the East Coast back to the West Coast and is now making great basses in California. For more on Pete and his art, check out hiltonguitars.com.
I picked this bass up from the original owner, and the bass is pristine. Not a mark or ding on this baby from top to bottom. I will say that I reserve the right to change my mind, as this bass is different than any other in my collection so I may eventually reconsider.
I am asking $4000 for this bass, which I think is very affordable. As far as trades are concerned, I would really only be interested in the following:
F Bass BN5 (with exotic top)
Ken Bebensee 5
Fibenare Customs 5
Ken Smith Black Tiger
Body: Curly maple core, bocote/black walnut top and back, Ziricote center with black walnut/bocote stripes. Ziricote/bocote pickup covers.
Neck: Mahogany with ebony stripes and binding

Electronics: Kent Armstrong Pickups

From the original owner:
Nice! 34" scale?
36" scale, like butter. Might also consider certain Elricks or Cellinders...
Out of my price range...
But that headstock is sick. Beautiful bass.
Thanks everyone for the kind words. This baby has some serious interest but as of right now it is still available...
An amazing combinations of wood, and a bump for a great TB'er to deal with.
Some very interesting offers, but nothing that is quite a fit just yet.
Bump for classy woods.
Lots of interest, but not the right trades.
Still available for now...
Rocket man... Burning out his fuse out here alone..
The best basses that I tried at the NAMM 2014. Incredible tone…
An amazing bass from an amazing luthier. Pete Hilton is building some beauties. Glwts
Last week my mom passed so I'll be headed to California, I'd like to get this sold before then so please make me a reasonable offer and she is all yours.
Sorry to hear that Thomas .. Thoughts and prayers with you And your family..
