    SOLD

    For sale is my beautiful MLP King Single Cut 5 string bass. These instruments are fairly rare in the US. Very versatile sounding with a tight articulate tone. This bass has gotten equal stage/studio time along side my Foderas. I'm only selling to get some money for a new fretless. The overall condition is very good. Has a few small marks here and there and some minor marking on the back maple block (see album pics).

    Now $1875 shipped and insured (CONUS) via paypal.
    Only potential trades would be for a 5 or 6 string fretless.

    i can tell you folks, this is a fantastic sounding and playing bass, no jive. A lot of bass for the money.

    Great jazz bass bark, plays like butter as well.

    About four near-sales. But no one has pulled the trigger yet.

    I've also had a few requests now for a sound clip of the bass. So I'll see what I can find or maybe I'll lay something down quick.

    $2100 shipped (conus). I'll consider any reasonable offers for this great bass.

    I had a request for a sound clip using the neck pickup, so I added a couple of clips to the first post.

    I'm not usually a fan of single cuts but this is a stunning bass. Every element just enhances the look.
