    If you have a Pre-Gibson Tobias or a Ken Smith I'd be willing to trade + or - cash or 2 for 1. No four strings please
    Buy before January 3rd and get $100 off!

    First up is a Benavente vintage vortex fretless. This bass sounds amazing and plays like butter.
    35" scale
    19mm spacing
    Mahogany body
    maple/rosewood neck
    hipshot hardware
    Benavente pickups and 3 band pre

    Asking firesale price of $1000 shipped in an old reunion blues double bag (not pictured) and I'll even include a brand new instructional fretless DVD.


    Next is a Nordstrand VJ5. I'm very on the fence about selling this one, and may pull if the Benavente sells.
    The Specs:
    Alder body
    Maple neck
    Brazillian rosewood board
    MOP blocks
    Universal neck pickup route(currently a reverse P)
    Sadowsky 2 band pre with VTC
    Weighs under 9 lbs
    19 mm spacing
    34.5 inch scale
    Small frets
    Plays like a dream and sounds amazing!

    This one comes with a Reunion blues continental bag (pictured with the Benavente).
    Asking $2300

    Thank you kindly Mjcoderre! She's a keeper. Having serious doubts about selling her at this point.

    As a former owner of that Nordy, I will say that it is the best one of Carey's instruments I have played. It only left my hands to help my Fodera quest, and if I had the resources at the time to keep two high level instruments it would still be mine. Good luck with the sale and to anyone interested in that Nordy, go for it and you won't be sorry for a second!

    Thanks for the kind words Grady! I for sure wouldn't be selling her if I didn't need to. This is my 3rd Nordstrand and by far the best! (also Carey told me he no longer does brazilian rosewood)

    Sorry for the absence. The Nordy for now is off the market. I'm going to buy a jazz pickup for it and try out a JJ config.
    The benavente is still up. Consider trades that net me at least $300.

    Thanks Red! I'm thinking about keeping it and refinishing it in Crown Royal purple. got $300 in credit card debt left and 1 more small lone. As soon as those are paid she comes off the market. Really fantastic bass :)
