    I purchased this from fellow TB'er Miskha back in 2011. I don't really play it anymore, so I'd like to pass it on to someone who would.

    Here is the classified thread from 2011
    FS: CB Cliff Bordwell 4-string Ball Bass Tulipwood

    P_20170301_181642. P_20170301_181646. P_20170301_181653. P_20170301_181706. P_20170301_181748.

    Here are the specs:


    Scale length: 34''
    Neck shape: Jazz
    Width at nut: 1.5
    String spacing at bridge: 20mm
    Body thickness: 1.5
    Weight: 8.5 Lbs


    Neck: 5 Piece Maple/ Bubinga, Neck Through
    Fingerboard: Brazilian Tulipwood
    Fingerboard radius: 16''
    Nut: Bubinga

    Body Woods:

    Top: Birdseye Maple (Full)
    Core: Spanish Cedar
    Back: Spalted Maple (Wings only)
    Headstock Plate: Birdseye Maple


    Bridge: CB Hardwood Brazilian Tulipwood w/ Bubinga Saddles (comes with extra saddles)
    Tuners: Hipshot Ultralites (Satin Chrome)
    Truss rod: Two-way Adjustable
    Frets: 24 (Medium Gauge)

    Output: 1/4'' Side-mount


    Pickups: Kent Armstrong with Tulipwood covers with carved-in thumb-rests
    Preamp: 3-band EQ
    Controls: Bubinga knobs

    When I received it the action was extremely high, so I took it to a great repair shop and they set it up, and it plays beautiful. It was also set-up again about a year ago. It is currently strung with halfwounds. TKL Hardshell case (pictured) included.

    I don't have any sounds clips (I'm a horrible bass player anyway).

    Asking $1450 or best offer. No trades please.

    If you're local, you're welcome to come check it out.
    Price including Shipping to the lower 48, I will ship overseas at an additional cost.
