    I love this bass and as usual have no immediate need to more. I’m always up for entertaining trades though. These basses are about as rare as hen’s teeth these days. It has the Bartolini pickup/Demeter preamp setup. This combo for me is what makes the Tyler sound. It’s 34” scale with a maple neck/pau ferro fingerboard. The body is 3 piece with mamywo wings and alder center block. Cosmetically it has a couple of small things that I’ve pictured below but technically everything operates very well and has been recently setup with a medium low action and plays great with the asymmetrical neck profile. The weight is in the low mid 9’s.

    As far as trades go I would be interested in:

    Sadowsky NYC J or Modern 5’s
    Roscoe 5 or 6
    USA Lakland 5’s
    Dingwall 5

    Just throw me an offer if you have other basses/gear. All I can do is politely say no!

  4. Wow... That's just beautiful man. Just wondering what happened to cause that huge crack? Will the pieces fall off eventually? :(
