    2012 Shen SB-100 purchased from Cincinnati luthier Nick Lloyd

    Handpicked between 2 other SB-100's and 1 solid top SB-150 model! I do not believe Nick sells anything besides his commissioned hand built basses anymore.

    Professionally played and professionally set up by Nick with Medium gauge Spirocores in 2014. Bass is ready to play and is equally at home for jazz or roots music but also is completely bowable and sounds great! Ebony board is in excellent shape! VERY EASY TO PLAY!!

    This model has the individual tuners and a oil finish that gives it an especially nice look.

    Also has a David Gage Realist pickup installed, Nick's adjustable bridge, and includes a Bobelock travel bag/cover. I am also including an Ingles stand!

    Bass now reside in Aurora, Co. Come by and check it out if you must!
    Damage is only present on the bottom of the bass near the endpin from the stand but since the finish is oil, it is easily repairable!

    Bass is $2000 alone but with strings, setup, bag, and pickup would retail for at least $600 more!

    I can drive a fair distance if we can split the difference!Great gift for someone...or you!!

    No trades, please!

    Is this bass still available? I am looking for one and live in Rapid City, SD. Playing a Shen SB80 currently that belongs to a fellow band mate. Looking to buy my own. This is a decent looking bass except for the finish around the end pin. I was hoping to find an older bass with more character, or a blonde, but this looks like a nice instrument and you arent far from me. You can text me at 605-431-1212. I'd like to know availability. Thanks.
