    This is a 2016, very well used and taken care of Wilkins WRTPJ 4 bass with a Light Roasted Maple Neck and dark roasted Flamed Maple Fretboard (It almost looks like rosewood!), Matte Black Alder Body, Seymour Duncan Pickups and Hipshot Hardware.
    This bass had some scuffs and small scratches, nothing affecting tone or playability, it is a PLAYING MACHINE!!! It feels like a vintage P Bass!! It's amazing and it plays like a dream.
    Comes with Gig Bag.
    Weighs 8 lbs 3 oz and is completely passive. It also is 34" scale and the width at the nut is 1-5/8".
    This bass is in excellent gigging shape and is just sonically fantastic as are all of Pat Wilkins Basses. $895 Shipped CONUS only. the only trade might be a Dingwall 5.

    Very nice vibe!! The bridge pickup seems a lot closer to the neck pickup than a typical PJ... if so, how does it affect the tone? Very interesting!!

    That's Pat's spin on a pj. It thickens up the bridge pup and takes a bit of the "scoop" out of the pj making it have just a smidge more grunt. I totally dig it. Im getting an active 5 string, I like it so much.
