    Man, I REALLY REALLY hate to sell this, but some things are going on right now that I kinda need to move a few pieces.

    Landscape deep archtop hollowbody.

    Amazing sounding bass.

    Taken from Tom's (emblymouse) ad:

    Maple/ply molded top and back, sides could be maple too. Very well appointed with maple binding, rosewood pickup surrounds and fretboard, ebony knobs and strap button, and a massive chunck of ebony on the tailpiece. Satin finish on a warm violin burst. Cosmetically near perfect, nothing noticable enough to comment on.

    Full 34" scale maple bound neck with pearl inlay dots and headstock.
    It is strung with Thomastik Nickel rounds (ex long scale) and plays great! Even though it has a floating bridge it is in tune up and down the neck, no issues with intonation or uneven harmonics. It is a comfortable size neck, not as chunky as a P but still wider at the nut than a Jazz.

    I'll toss in one of those Sabine "stick-on" tuners. Works great on it.

    The bass is mint.

    Doing research, and there really isn't much out there, these do go for used in the low mid $1000's (like 1200-1500). I'll try and find the links again to the only other 2 I've seen.
    It was a long time ago (right after I got it) that I dug around for info.

    So, PRICE DROP!!!! $1000 shipped to you. ConUS only please.

    I'll try and take some more (these are from the old ad- Thanks Tom!!!), but I'm not with the bass at the moment.

    Not too interested in trades right now.
    You can try me, never hurts to ask!

    Wow, that's gorgeous! If this was a five string, you would have Paypal fundage. Good luck with the sale.

    If it was a 5, I don't think I would sell it!

    I would love to know the exact nut width. 1 11/16? 1 5/8? Less?

    Thanks!

    Didn't get a chance to measure the nut width.
    It's a tad wider than a Jazz, but not like a P-Bass at all. If that helps.

    What a beauty! I am so tempted. How much does it weigh? I couldn't find anything on their web site about this model. Maybe they don't make it anymore?

    Folks, if this bass has you curious, go for it, you won't see another. It is a true full hollowbody and is of high quality. This was made by the same people as Atelier Z in Japan. They are not imported across the pond so be the first on your block.....:cool::cool:

    If I can sell some stuff quickly, this bass is gorgeous. I know a guy who has the same, or similar:confused:, bass that he got when he went to a study abroad program in Tokyo. Its a dream to play. Only difference is, is that his is black.

    Free bump while I sell off a kidney.
