    Hi there!

    Up for sale is one of my Carl Thompson basses.
    This one is from 1996. It is in an excellent shape! Almost no dings or scratches at all.
    This bass was originally conceived with one pickup and a Carl Thompson special circuitry. When I got this bass, a few years ago, it came like it is now: a second pickup was installed and the circuit was upgraded to an Aguilar OBP-2. It sounds absolutely fantastic!! The only other modification is an added strap button on the back (made before me, you can see the screw hole on the pictures)

    Body is Walnut with red maple accent laminations along the body.
    Neck is a single piece maple, 36" scale

    It has the very rare and very special walnut bridge. This alone is worth this bass. A collector's piece.

    Obviously, it has the perfect balance that CTs are known for.

    The bass is located in Brazil but I can ship it anywhere in the world.
    Paypal only.

    No trades.

    Wow!Super nice! I noticed you said "one of my Carl Thompson basses"... o_O

    How many CT's do you have!? (if it's not too forward to ask) I just find it insane when someone manages to own more than one of these babies. You must have an impressive collection.

    Again, beautiful bass and glwts!
     
  6. Hi there!
    I've owned 4 of them in total. Some semi-frills, some full-frills.

    Thanks!

    It's really Christmas time with all of these CTs showing up!
    Good luck with your sales. :)

  8. Just to be clear, this is NOT a Semi Frills model. This is a full Custom bass. It has a more down to earth approach, with the bolt on neck. But this is a fully custom CT.
