    What can I say, this bass has it all.....

    This is half the price of what it would cost you if Dan was still building. Not your basic Atkinson; it has the fancy top, Nordy guts, Hipshot bridge and quarter sawn neck.

    This bass is as smooth playing as you can get. The neck is lightning fast and the P/J Nordstrand PUs give you a huge tonal palate. Absolutely no issues of any kind.

    As new, not a scratch, dent or speck of dust on it. Beautiful bass, just not playing as much and my passive Kallas J is meeting my needs just fine. If I were a wealthy man I would certainly be keeping it but the truth is, you just can't keep them all.

    Ash body
    Flame maple top
    59 burst
    Quartersawn neck (same dimensions as a Lakland JO)
    Maple board
    Vintage sized frets
    Tort guard
    Hipshot A bridge
    Hipshot tuners
    Nordstrand PJ pickups
    Nordstrand 2 band pre with passive tone control
    (vol/vol/tone/bass-treble stack)
    9 pounds 2.4 ounces (on my digital scale)
    Gig Bag


    The only change I made to the bass was to install a Hipshot A style bridge and remove the Gotoh bridge. I prefer being able to remove strings without having to pull them back through the bridge. The photos below show the Gotoh bridge but I will take some more in the next few days that show the Hipshot bridge.

    It's not just beautiful on the outside but also on the inside. This thing is a "tone-machine" and it has a lightning fast neck. Really an amazing bass!

    You know I'd love to have it, one of the best looking basses on the board. As always, our taste is very similar.


    Does it come with a case Spencer?
