Lookin' to shake things up at casa de Josh, so putting this unique piece up for sale. Let's start with the main thread: Veillette Singlecut Fretless 5 | TalkBass.com Now let's throw some new thoughts on top: 1) It's a light bass, probably low 8 pound range (maybe even a hair under?). I have no scale or I'd weigh it. 2) WIDE fingerboard, 35" scale. If you don't have long arms and decent size hands you might want to pass. 3) The Glock pre is out as I'm an all passive guy, controls are now vol-blend-tone-controls bybass. It obviously has room for a pre, a battery, and 4 controls if one was so inclined to make it active again. 4) In the dictionary under "bass", it says to see this instrument. What I mean by that is this is not a modern, zingy sounding instrument. It is a big, deep, warm, organic sounding bass, and the highest frequencies it seems to produce would more likely be some form of upper midrange for a more modern bass. 5) The B string is ridiculous. Expected on a 35" bass, and confirmed by this guy (me). 6) I have 5 replacement saddles for the very unique bridge. I'm a nut for having backups. 7) Comes with the Veillette gigbag. Nothing flashy or specifically wonderful, but an ok case. I am the only owner (bought back in 2009), and it just came back from Veillette with a freshly leveled fingerboard. It's in great shape overall. According to Martin Keith, these retailed for high 3K to low 4K range depending on options. Priced here at $1300 + shipping. No Paypal.
