    This was previously owned by TB'ers Dave Wilson and freakbass. It has an awesome burled maple top and back, swamp ash body, 3 piece maple neck, walnut heelblock, and a Brazilian rosewood fretboard (rare!). Electronics are Bartolini preamp and soapbar pickups with a three way toggle for active/passive/standby. Scale length is 35, 24 frets, 19mm string spacing. Weight is approximately 9 lbs. It still has the NAMM tag with options and a list price of $4600. I've never heard a neck-through or a swamp ash bodied bass with this kind of punch, I suspect due to the Brazilian rosewood. It's got some player wear but is in excellent shape. $1900, plus shipping. NO TRADES please.

    All right, Lokire. . . I think you're overstepping your boundaries! :p

    Just kidding! Seriously though, thanks for posting these. This is it folks, it's a monster. If you all know Rob's work, he's one of the best luthiers out there today.
