    Up for sale is a bass that holds a very special place in my heart. I got into playing bass after hearing Primus at age 15. Since then I have been incredibly blessed to have played and owned so many basses. As a Primus junky, I had always wanted a Carl Thompson. Well last year I finally got one. It is a dream, light, just over 7lbs, versatile, full bodied, just all together special.

    Specs -
    Walnut body with Walnut top (three piece with red wood in between.
    Rose wood board with a maple neck.
    Single EMG pickup.
    This is the No Frills model and is in stellar condition. I have babied her since day one.

    My asking price is $4100. Only trades id be interested in would be Smith, Ritter and MTD.

    Let me know if you have any questions... ImageUploadedByTalkBass1359873573.584177.jpg ImageUploadedByTalkBass1359873601.554842.jpg

    I'm not certain, but I believe it's the EMG pre, but ill find out. It's stock from what Carl put into it.
