I’ve owned this bass for a two months so it is essentially new with ZERO dings, scratches, etc. Tom is a artist when it comes to builds and this one is right up there with many instruments more than twice its price range!
She balances perfectly, with a fast easy to play neck and plenty of Mwahhh even without the rounds. The open voicing is exceptionally punchy with even swell across the strings. This one cuts through the mix!
For the curious, the African Olive is hard enough for rounds. I had rounds on it originally but for my ear/feel and what I was playing swapped them out for some burpy flats. If you prefer the rounds (also E-C), I’ll throw them in for free. For low B players, if that is your thing, Tom’s instruments have a tight killer B string. This instrument is both a looker and player and I was impressed with the Macassar Ebony top. It almost seems to add a bit of natural compression that might suit some players and styles. I’m asking $2,000 or OBO with shipping included which is a tad bit over $500 off. http://www.clementbass.com/web/Galle.../Clement%20271
