    This beautiful bass came my way in a trade. I've enjoyed getting to know it, but...I've got too much stuff, and it shouldn't be sitting in my closet.

    Asking $1900, shipped CONUS. The bass is in excellent condition. Includes a nice Fender hard case, color-coordinated even. A few minor scuffs on the case.

    Thank you! Yeah, the wood grain _and_ woodworking on this bass are amazing.

    I don't wait 30 minutes after eating, to go swimming.
    I have a fretless D Bass and it is exceptional in every way! GLWTS.

    This is what the previous owner told me:

    Killer Cliff Bordwell D bass. 5er with Audere Pre, Nordstrand ( I think ) pickups.

    Controls are vol, treble, hi mid, lo mid, bass pick up pan. There's an active/passive switch and a coil switch. This gives wide range of useful tones. From near P bass territory to a great Rick impression.

    i believe the body wood is Amboyna Burl. Cliffs wenge/maple neck. 34" scale. 9.3 lbs via the bathroom scale method.

    Well...mostly interested in a sale, but no problem if you want to wave something at me.

    I started a convo for us to talk about it.
     
  13. Beautiful bass ! I have a Bordwell Big McNeely 6-string, his basses are works of art.
