FS/FT: Wood & Tronics 33" Chronos Hollowbody 6 string
This is a hard bass for me to sell. It was built for me in Italy by Wood and Tronics. in 2011. The body is hollow on both sides with a center block. It plays amazingly easy with very low action and no buzz. The bass is in near mint condition, no major wear, just a couple tiny spots. Recently I had it set up, and had the frets dressed, and it plays beautifully. It had a slight shallow crack in the ebony board, my repairman fixed it beautifully and you can't hardly even see it, but in the interest of full disclosure, there it is.
With flatwounds, the bass has incredible midrange complexity.There isn't much I can say about how great it is, If you have specific questions, let me know. Unfortunately I need to let it go to pay for a couple of basses I'm severely lacking; a 5 string jazz, and a fretless. See below for trades.
Rather than try to describe the sound, there are some links below for audio sound clips.

This is great. W&T always gets my attention when I see the bases they build.
What brand of flatwounds do you put on it? To me, it's a challenge to find flatwound low B and high C strings that I like.

It has Labella's on it, they're the best I've found for 6 string flats, though I haven't tried them all. It is the set designed for 'string thru body' basses. You can see that the B string is tapered in the second photo, so that its a smaller gauge at the ferrule and can handle the breaking angle easier. With rounds that is a non-issue.

Damn. That thing is beautiful. I think I broke my eye looking at that thing.:eek:

Had a couple nibbles already, but its still up for grabs.

Looking like its a done deal here. I'll update/close the thread once funds come through. Thanks for all the interest.
