    FOR SALE: Acacia Custom Shop "Gladius" 6-String Bass

    $1,550 SHIPPED (includes hard case, pack of extra strings).

    -34" scale
    -24 frets
    -Bolt-on construction
    -Dual action truss rods
    -Mahogany body (gloss)
    -Mahogany neck (unfinished)
    -Burl maple top (gloss body, unfinished headstock)

    This bass is beautifully-made and has a great, thick, monstrous P-bass-type tone, I hate to see it go but Spring cleaning is in progress. Bass has spent 90% of its life in the case and essentially is in the same condition I received it in. It's primarily been used at home for videos/recording, but never used live much since I began playing Warwick.

    Two videos with recorded audio for tone sample:

    Not is was not. A different builder came along and used the name after Matt retired.
