    Unfortunately, I am selling my Cliff Bordwell Big McNeely. It is an alder body with a tulipwood top and pap ferro flat fingerboard. The ramp, which is also pao ferro, hods two Nordstrand split coil pickups and the rear cavity holds the Nordstrand preamp. It is a short scale, 32" bass with Hipshot tuners and bridge. I currently have it strung from E to high F. It has a slight ding in the rear of the bass just above the rear cavity cover.

    Awesome. Is the ramp flat or radiused?

    I am going off of memory on the body so it probably is ash rather than alder. The ramp is flat, but so is the fingerboard. I will look up more of the details and give you guys a little more information.
