    Up for sale is my beautiful Carl Thompson Custom Bolt-On lined fretless bass. This bass has an amazing custom neck with nice detailing around the headstock that I have pictured here for you to see.

    It has been kept in my climate/humidity controlled home studio since I purchased it from Thelowend bass shop several months ago. The bass, and in particular, the ebony fingerboard is mint, with no scratches or nicks from the strings as I have only a couple of hours of total playtime on it.

    Aside from the gorgeous woodwork, this bass has Kent Armstrong dual pickups which give the sound amazing presence and the low end has plenty of thump and warmth.

    The only reason I am selling is because I don't find the 36" scale to be a comfortable length for me to play. Hence the low amount of playtime on this piece. Comes with the pictured gig bag and will be packed carefully and shipped promptly.

    Please feel free to ask any questions! Not looking for any trades at this time. No international buyers please.

  2. Great bass I was going to buy this one.
    Rare when Carl does custom work on these semi frills basses.
    The 36" scale contributes to the tone of that bass. I found it to be comfortable. Buy a Carl Thompson before you can't..... this one is very nice.

    Thanks. Yeah, this is a great bass and the tone is amazing. This is not an easy decision to make. I'll leave it up for a day or so and see what happens. If it doesn't move, I'll give it one more try with the scale length.
     
  4. If it doesn't sell, I'll buy it next month. :)
