    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

    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.
