    Hello folks,
    For sale is a custom 30" short-scale bass made by Creston Electric in Burlington, VT in 2007. Creston does fantastic work and helped me design a perfect bass to fit a 70s Fender neck I already had.

    Creston designed the body as an 8/9ths replica of a standard Tele bass body. The neck is original Fender, taken from a 70s era Mustang or Jaguar bass. Original tuners. Vintage-style hardware on body. Lindy Fralin pickups. Olympic White. Pick guard and chrome cover plate styles are Creston's design.

    Easy to play. Smooth, rich sound. Feels like a dream. Looks cool as ****. See pics and sound sample below.

    Some nicks and flaking in the paint (see pics). Neck is definitely vintage, but the rosewood is beautiful, it's straight, and plays smoothly, evenly and without noise.

    $750 + $40 shipping to lower 48. International is possible, but buyer pays actual shipping expenses. Paypal ok. Sorry, no trades.
