    Dear all,

    Here a one-of instrument for sale. After many years trying different things I worked with Wing Instruments to design and bring into reality this amazing beast. The bass has two necks, one with a 4 string fretless / piezo / flats configuration, and the other one with a fretted, midi-capable, dual pickup configuration. I wanted this instrument to go gigging with my trio in Montreal, but my work brought me to Florida and my gigging days will be very rare for a long while. I don’t like having instruments laying there not being played and I think this instrument features include many sought-of characteristics. The bass has three outputs (fretless sound - absolutely amazing with the piezos, fretted - the PUs have a almost-Gibson semi-acoustic sound, and Midi output). Where these are commonly called “short scale”, instead this is like a normal bass but “cut” at the 5th fret. The scales and tension remain the same.
    Below the extensive list of features/attributes
    • Instrument, 22.7” scale
      • Mahogany Wings
      • Body Dyed Black
      • Dual Outputs, one for each neck
      • 16.5mm String Spacing on both
      • Necks close together, but playable separately
      • Weight: 4kg / 8.81 lbs
    • Fretless
      • 4 String, wearing flats
      • Tuned EABC
      • Morado Fingerboard
      • Bartolini PU and preamp
      • Piezo/Mag Buffer
      • Playing Ramps, Matching Body at Bridge and Neck
    • Fretted
      • 6-String Fretted on Bottom
      • Morado Fingerboard
      • Delano MC6 HE 6 String DL5(MusicMan Xtend) Size Quad Coil Pickup for Bridge
      • Delano JC6 HE/M2 6 String JC6 Size Split Coil Neck Pickup
      • Delano SONAR 3MS Preamp (Selectable Mids Inside Cavity)
      • Playing Ramps, Matching Body at Bridge and Neck
    The bass will travel to its new owner inside a well constructed carton box, well padded. I will add a stereo cable and the strap I have used for it. Shipment is not included, so once its new location is determined I will use the postal services to provide an estimate. Since this is both a 6 and a 4 string bass, if the moderators don’t mind, it will appear twice. Photos of this beauty below.

    It looks like someone bolted a Kiesel Vader onto a Strandberg - I love it.
