    Price:
    850
    Currency (EU and Intl):
    BGP
    Strings:
    4
    My Location:
    United Kingdom
    Superb, featherweight (<7.5 pound) handmade bass from highly lauded Scottish luthier Alan Cringean. John East electronics, rosewood zero radius board (hence cannnot be sold to to US because of CITES restrictions), 34" scale. Beautiful and almost plays itself.

    Only selling as I just received a short scale (32") ACG which suits my (previously busted-up) left hand better (for the record I also have a fretless ACG too!) . Comes with Hiscox hard case. This is seriously good and amazing value at less than a factory-built Mex Fender. Price does not include post.

    Yep apologies. I have had confirmed by Alan that this would require a costly and bureaucratic-to-obtain CITES certificate or it risks seizure and confiscation on entry into the US. Within Europe there is not a problem.

    PS I recognise we need to conserve our flora and fauna but I don't get why reselling already harvested and commercially sold rosewood is any risk to the planet. But sadly I don't make the rules :-(

    I will include UK post in the asking price. Obviously post to mainland Europe would be extra (at a guess £35-40 more)

    I would love to figure out a way to do this. And I wonder - are trades an option?

    Hi there unfortunately CITES restrictions mean I cannot ship to US fo fear of bass being impounded (as I see you are in New Orleans)

    To your point, I am downsizing so its sale only I am afraid

    Well I would be delighted to ship to Scotland! However, unfortunately I have too many basses (3 ACGs including this one and a Fender; as well as DB, EUB and banjo bass!!!!)
