    One of the most impressive instruments I’ve owned in my entire life.
    I probably will end up keeping it since it was a big struggle to find and if you do any searching on these, they don't come up often.

    Carl Thompson Full Frills / All-The-Frills - 4 String

    Here are the specs:
    -36" Scale
    -7.62 lbs on my Rapala Fish Scale
    -String Spacing is 17.5mm and adjustable at the bridge
    -Nut Width is 1 and 5/8"
    -Neck Profile - V Shaped / Pronounced U Shape, not C shaped or like a baseball bat....comfortable!
    -Comes with an official Carl Thompson Gig Bag

    This bad boy is super comfortable on a strap. It’s a very organic sounding bass. Pickups are Active EMGs. Both switches are 3-Way. The upper switch being a pickup selector Neck pickup/Both Pickups/Back pickup. The lower switch is Mute/On/Enhanced lows circuit sounds like an upright! :)

    It’s very cool to see a wooden nut on a bass! Even the truss rod cover and cavity covers are solid wood. This bass has everything from a few species of wood: Walnut, Paduak, Bloodwood, Ebony, and Mahogany. As some of you know, Carl likes each instrument built with its own character and style so no two CTs are exactly the same.

    Trades - Brands that interest me most:
    Alleva Coppolo
    Carl Thompson

    Asking price is $10,000USD with payment via US Bank Wire.

    Please provide pictures and specs via "Start a conversation with me" which is talkbass private messaging.

    I reserve the right to keep this bass at any time.

    Stay safe, be well, and enjoy these pictures:
