    SOLD! So on paper, this was the ultimate bass for me, but after playing for a month and switching between my Dingwall Super PZ5, I'm just not jiving with it. I'm not sure if its because I'm not a J bass guy or an Alder body guy, but this one isn't going to work for me. I've basically owned only one other Jazz bass in my life (ash/maple which I liked), so my frame of reference is not great.

    This has an alder body with a maple neck and morado fretboard. Comes in around 9.5lbs and ships with a Levy's gig bag. Has a 2 band Glockeklang pre with a passive option and treble rolloff. Balances perfectly and is in great condition. There is one factory defect in the first picture. Basically little pinprick hole that is underneath the clear coat, i.e. you can't feel it.

    I paid $2250 and that is what I am looking for on this. It originally came with a plain white guard, but I got a white pearl guard which IMO looks even better.

    This particular bass is a great example of Sheldon's work. GLWTS.

    Hmmm...starting to like this bass more, I think at this point I'm probably looking at a straight up sale or I'll just keep it. There are a couple new things coming out that'd I want, so if I do sell it, I'd probably just order something else.

    This is beauty is driving me crazy. I'm between gigging bands right now otherwise I could justify the purchase.

    Good luck with the sale but I can also understand you keeping it.
