    Beautiful custom Electrical Guitar Company (EGC) 8 string bass for sale. (Plays great as 4 string as well.) The design is based off the first 8 string that Kevin ever made (for Bob Weston of Shellac). I ordered this custom to my spec and have been the sole owner since I took delivery in August 2012.

    Those that know Kevin's work at EGC already know that he has pays impeccable attention to detail. The bass sounds and plays amazingly and is a work of art. I've only played it for special projects and at a gig once. It's in very clean shape.

    Controls: concentric knobs vol-tone for neck and bridge pick-ups
    Neck: aluminum with black block inlays
    34" scale
    Width at nut: just under 2"
    Pick-ups: single coils, 70s jazz spacing
    Weight: @12lbs,great balance
    -Schaller strap locks
    -Spare, unused tortoise guard
    -Comes in hardshell case, like new

    $2,899 shipped OBO.

    E Holy crap, dream bass. Mostly because I'm a huge shellac fan. Are the next Sunday is really thick? Please post a video so we can hear this!

    It plays quite comfortably with the high octave strings off the bass as well. I tried it that way for a few weeks.

    Here's what the maker said before I ordered the bass because I asked the same question: The octave strings are generally .06-.08 from the lower strings. So if you want to play normal 4 string and take the octaves off it will only feel and look like the strings are now shifted that small bit. Basically it wouldn't be awkward at all.
