    I have one of the best basses that's ever been in my possession up for sale preferred or possible trade. It was a $3400 build + $400 extras installed by Devon himself. There was only 2 other options to get on this bass that it doesn't have such as inlays and wood pickup covers. Devon makes the best bass I've had in my hands and that's saying something. This bass has Nordstrand DC5 pickups with a custom Bartolini preamp. Each Pickup is wired series/paralell/single coil and there is a vintage active/passive tone control added by Devon on this build. It is a lightweight bass at 9.2 pounds and sounds as good as she looks. Will come in a brand new Reunion Blues Continental gigbag $200. I'm putting up for sale to purchase another Devon that he has offered me at a extreme discount.

    Might consider special trades for:
    Roscoe Custom 5
    Maybe others

    Updated for sale only. I’m not letting this bass go unless it’s to buy the other new Devon I have my eye on. Lots of great trades thrown my way but this bass is to good for me to part with.
