    El Degas 4 string Bass. You won't see these every day. My scale has this at 8.2 pounds. Brand new round wound strings just installed. The $300 firm US dollar price includes a generic hard shell case and shipping using Canada Post / USPS expedited parcel insured and tracked to your door within Canada and the continental United States. Alaska and Hawaii ship costs are about $10 higher so lets make the price $310 US Dollars to ship to those two states.
    The bass plays and sounds great.

    In Canada in the late 1970's onward El Degas was a huge seller - making copies of all the Fenders Gibson's and Rickenbacker's. This bass has the body style of Precision, the pickup configuration of the Fender Precision split P near the neck and the double J near the bridge (Schaller made pickups in this format ....but I can't say with certainty what brand is actually in this bass). Plenty of potential to swap pickups with other brands available (the bass plays great and I sure have thought of putting some Fender American Deluxe pickups into this bass). I just saw Eric Church''s bassist Lee Hendricks playing a Fender style bass sporting this precision and double J pickup configuration. The headstock sports the pointy hockey stick Jackson influenced look.

    Any questions are invited so message me. Thank You.

    The body shape is very much Charvel inspired. Schecter has a similar pickup setup

    Snapped a picture of the El Degas with a ruler at the nut and same picture with an Ibanez SR800 (red) 1.5" / 33 mm nut width for comparison purposes. Snapped a picture of the frets near the nut with the strings off. Ideally you can use the computer to zoom in and see the facts today April 11th. A picture paints one thousand words.
