    Designed by Dan Lakin. The tone, feel, and build quality on this bass are amazing. Classic P-bass tone for days; the pickup is killin'. I have had several sound guys at gigs comment on how great this bass sounds. Oil finished neck. Light and resonant alder body. 8 lbs. Beautiful vintage gold finish with matching headstock. Made in Korea and finished in the UK, build quality is spot on. I hate to let this bass go but I have to thin the herd and accept that am a Jazz bass guy.

    $900 shipped to the CONUS.

    It has some metallic in the paint. I am not sure how to describe it. It is sort of a vintage custom car color if that makes sense. There is definitely a wow factor when you get up close. These pics on the Ashdown site show the color better. The Arc
