    Hey fellow Tb'ers I am selling my Tom Clement bass.
    Features are as follows:

    - 19mm string spacing
    - 34 inch scale
    - Weighs 9.5lbs
    - Has top of the line Norstrand P-J pickups
    - Bartolini active preamp
    - Active/passive push pull knob
    - Spalted maple top
    - Mahogany body
    - Lined fretboard (makes fretless WAY easier)
    - BRAND NEW CONDITION
    - Open to trades

    Has just about every option possible. I paid about $2400 for this thing new and barely ever played it. It honestly has about 20 hours of total play time on it. Never gigged with it because I didn't want to ding it. Condition is 9.5/10; it is as close to brand new as you can get. Looks like single cut Fodera Tom Kennedy model. The bass is located in Sf bay area in California and can be arranged to be picked up. I will also be including a really nice gig bag. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to make an offer. Price is $1500. I'm also open to trades: looking for a P bass, preferably vintage Fender, Lakland, Sadowsky, Mike Lull P, or other brand. Will also consider trades for high end cabs: Aguilar, etc. I can put money on top of trade if needed. Trade value should be around $2400 new. Thanks for checking out my ad.

    I'm gonna get a 36 from ya one of these days, just so I can try the Anthony Jackson string set. Be wary. :p

    Too bad; I was kinda psyched about a 43" scale! :)

    Nice bass

    Ahaha thanks rick! Ya that'd be pretty sweet. Might be hard to play, you'd really have to stretch to hit that C on the B string!

    Might consider a trade for fretless Fender Jazz made in America or fretted 5 string with string spacing smaller than 19mm

    Hello tondogg. This still for sale? How much? What other bass would you compare this too? I play pedulla and Zon. Any chance you could take a video walk around of the bass?? Maybe play it quick? I live in ny, thanks.
