    For sale I have a Celinder Update 5 in translucent red/wine.

    Specs are:
    Danish Ash Body
    Transparent Red/Wine Finish
    White Pearloid Pick guard
    Celinder Custom Hum Canceling Pickups
    Celinder CP3 Preamp
    Figured Maple Neck and Fingerboard with Some Birdseye Figuring

    This is a beautiful instrument with incredible snap and punch that nails the 70’s jazz bass vibe and can swing to the modern tonality as well. Plays effortlessly and can be set up with super low action. Bass is in mint condition and comes in its original Pro Tec case that has never left my house. Bass was transported in a custom gig bag, which can be purchased for an additional $150.


    Proceeds from this sale are needed for upcoming bills. With that said, I’m not interested in any trades. Sale price is $3600.

    Hi, these are great basses.....I was wondering if you have the version of the CP3 pre that has dip switches or not?

    Thanks.

    No binding. Build year was circa 2006. I'm the original owner.

    Not sure of weight and I don't have an accurate way of measuring. It's not the heaviest bass I've own nor is it a featherweight. Non-the-less, she has the solid sound of a 70's jazz on steroids.

    For those of you curious about weight, I did the bathroom scale thing and got 10.8#'s. Like I said, not a boat anchor nor a featherweight.
