    Hello,
    I am a few weeks away from my fourth Cliff Bordwell bass, so I am going to let this one go. It is one awesome looking bass, and pictures do NOT do it justice!!! I am the original owner.

    Specs taking straight off of Cliff's site -
    Cliff Bordwell SC 5 string
    Dimensions :
    Scale length: 35 inches
    Neck shape: Oval
    Width at nut: 1.875
    Width at 24th position: 3.1
    String spacing at Bridge: .75
    Overall length: 42 1/2 inches
    Widest: 14.0 inches
    Weight: 8.0lbs.

    Construction :
    Neck: Maple / Wenge
    Fingerboard: Stabilized Bubinga

    Headstock plate: Bubinga
    Nut: Ebony
    Body: One piece Bubinga top / Redwood body with Maple center block.

    Hardware :
    Bridge: Hipshot style "A" 3-way adjustable.
    Tuners: Hipshot Ultralites
    Truss rod: two-way adjustable

    Preamp: Aguilar 3-band with A/P switch.

    ***************************************
    Note - I still have the silver hardware that came with the bass, and last week I just bought a preamp from ACG guitars I was thinking about putting in it. It is an ACG Filter-based EQ2 system with a battery low light still in the box!
    I will include it all with the purchase of the bass.
    ***************************************

    I spent over $450 dollars on the upgraded wooden knobs from David King, and the ACG preamp that has not been installed yet. I will sale all for the low price of $2,600. Shipping included in price, but I will only ship inside of the US (conus).

    There is one small dent on the back control cover. I tried taking pics, but it blends in with the wood grain. More picture of the bass can be found on Cliff's site under the featured basses tab.

    Take care.

    Thanks. It always gets a "Wow!" from someone new seeing it.

    I really want another 5 string bass, and I can't justify having five basses to take care of. It will be a sad day if it sales... but I got to make room!

    What is the finish on the bass? Some of the pics look like a flat and some look like a high polished oil finish.
    Beauty of a bass!

    Thanks.
    It is a hand rubbed on oil finish made by Howard Feed 'N' Wax.

    If the buyer is not interested in the pre-amp, I am possibly interested in it if it is the 5 knob model.

    I haven't been able to let it go, and I never really got any close offers. I need to close this thread.
