    Edit 11/11/18 - may consider a partial trade for the right bass (your bass plus cash)

    Well, I've had some serious expenses pop up. I've tried selling some of my other basses and amps well under market value and they aren't budging for some strange reason. So unfortunately I have to put this up for sale (which I thought would never happen).

    This is a REAL-DEAL Fender Custom Shop neck. I had the world - famous Kevin Brubaker install the glow-dot side markers.

    I also had him refinish the All-Parts, USA Custom Shop body. This was a very long and involved refinish that took many coats and many, many hours. It was quite expensive to do, but we'll worth it as you can see.

    The electronics are EMG (Bottom row = vol/vol/tone and top row is treb/bass/mid,mid freq stack).

    Bass is in excellent condition and light (probably under 9 lbs, but I'll weigh her later). Action is insanely low. Playability is the best that you will ever lay your hands on (yes, that great). Tone is AMAZING and versatility is nearly unmatched! Incredible weapon!

    With everything set flat (and tone control open), I'd say it's a bit more on the Hi-Fi / 70's Jazz tone side due to the pickup placement.

    But you can cop almost any J tone thanks to the VVT and 3-band EQ (w mid-frequency sweep). Pretty amazing!

    One of the greatest finishes I've ever seen, and I'm not usually into bursts and quilt these days!

    After many months after taking this off the market, expenses call again. Hate, hate, HATE putting this up for grabs again. May take it down VERY soon. Grab it before I come to my senses again... You won't believe the action (playability) tone and versatility on this bass. Looks amazing, plays and sounds even better (believe it or not)!!!

    Tone-wise, it could work, but not sure the look screams metal... ;)

    Mother of mercy I know you aren’t taking trades but I’d seriously consider putting up my Sadowsky for this.
