    Here's an exquisite specimen from custom builder, Devon Smullen. It is a stellar example of why Devon is a master at the craft and a serious innovator in the space. It's the latest Gen5 design with downsized lightweight body and unique recessed input jack.

    • Body: Chambered Swamp Ash
    • Neck: 3-piece maple
    • Fretboard: 24-fret highly figured Birdseye Maple
    • Scale: 34 inch
    • Pickups: Nordstrand BigBlades (Clean and Clear versions)
    • Preamp: Nordstrand 3-b, 18-volt, 3-band with master volume/tone, active/passive switch, blend, mid (with push/pull for mid-shift switch) and treble/bass
    • Bridge: Hipshot A, 19mm
    • Tuners: Hipshot
    • Finish: Poly translucent white, satin on back of neck
    • Cover: Magnetically-fastened battery and electronics cover

    • Straplocks: Recessed

    • Weight: Just 8lbs, 7oz
    This one is in near mint condition with hardly a mark on it. A stunning instrument and extremely versatile. If you haven't already, you must experience the ergonomics and rolled fretboard edges which are just one of the many examples of fine attention to detail.

    Will ship in a hardshell case featured in a picture below.

    Here's the newborn page on the Devon website: Devon Bass Guitars

    Devon is at the top of his game.

    Now for the eye candy. :D

    As for a trade, if you have a pre-Gibson Tobias 5 string I'd be especially interested in talking.

  6. I love Devon basses. Wish I had never sold mine. His headstock design is one of the classiest I've ever seen. Such understated and beautiful lines. I'm not in the market at the moment, or I'd be seriously tempted!

    Love that transparent white finish and the birdseye board. I don't always like Devon basses but this one looks like a killer bass.

    A lot of people have been asking about trades. If you have a pre-Gibson Tobias 5 string I'd be especially interested in talking. I edited the first posting to reflect this.
