    Gorgeous Devon Modern Gen5 bass with a very rare Lace Afzelia top and matching headstock.

    This beauty was built earlier this year and still in the same condition as it was when it left Devon's shop...only played in church a handful of times. This build including matching knobs, matching pup covers and deluxe gig bag is well over $4K. Save big on an as new hand made work of art from Devon.

    Selling because I also have another Devon Gen5 beauty and I have my eye on a stunning fretless. If that bass sells before I can get it, I may pull this ad.

    Ships in a RB Continental Voyager bag or Mono M80 bag - buyer's choice.

    Specs and link from the original owner with studio pics are below:
    • Chambered Ash body
    • Lace Afzelia top
    • Lace Afzelia headstock
    • 3-piece maple neck
    • 24-fret Ebony fretboard w/ Abalone block inlays
    • 35 inch scale
    • Nordstrand BigRig pickups w/ custom matching covers
    • Nordstrand 3b preamp, 18-volt, 3-band with master volume (with push/pull for active/passive), tone, blend, treble and mid (with push/pull for mid-shift switch) and bass
    • Hipshot A, 19mm bridge
    • Hipshot tuners
    • Poly Gloss finish, satin on back of neck
    • Magnetically-fastened electronics cover and battery cover
    • 8lbs, 4oz
    SOLD - (Marked down to sale) Gorgeous Custom Devon with Rare Lace Afzelia top loaded

    I've been asked about trades. I'd prefer to sell outright because I have my eye on a specific bass I'm looking to purchase, but I'd possibly be interested in the following:

    -- Sadowsky USA or Metro 5
    -- Nordy 5
    -- MTD 5
    -- Ken Smith 5
    -- Roscoe (SKB body) 5
    -- Yamaha BBNE2 5
    -- Spector NS or NH 5
    -- Fender Custom Shop P bass
    -- Acoustic basses
    -- Other Devon 5's (in 34" scale as potential trade bait for the bass I'm eyeing)

    All +/- cash as needed. There's a possibility I'd be interested in other basses as well, but those are at the top of my list. Thanks.

    This is one bass I wish I was in financial shape to get back. I’ve owned a lot of basses like Roscoe, Benavente, MTD, Lakland, Warrior, STR, and many more. None of them was as good as these Devons.

    I believe it's Devon's take on a jazz style neck.

    I just now did a quick comparison of the necks on the Devon, an Am Pro P5, an American Elite J5, a Spector Forte 5 and a Lakland 55-94.

    Of the those four, the Devon's neck was closest to the 55-94 in terms of width of the taper from headstock to body. However, the neck on the Devon was "flatter" toward the upper register while the 55-94 was "rounder".

    To be honest, I couldn't tell you the difference between a C shape, D shape, etc. Weird enough, they all feel the same to me...I just pick them up and play them.

    Yep, they're definitely top notch. I don't think I'd even list it for sale if I didn't have the other Devon.

    Would you happen to have any sound clips? Just interested to see what those Big Rigs sound like in a modern kind of positioning.

    No sound clips at the moment. I'll try to put something together this weekend.
