  1. Hello,

    * Dropping bass price, and pricing it to sell!!! *
    * Price - $1,800 U.S. *
    I am selling my CB Bass - Big McNeely 5 string fretless 35 inch scale bass that I am the original owner of.

    This is the bass that Cliff and I worked on designing the new shape that is now the Big McNeely model! He was nice enough to name it after my last name, and he even used it in his ads in bass player magazine which I still have a copy of. This is your chance to get the very first of this model.

    The bass was delivered in 2009, and rarely left my office!!! It is a great bass with a killer looking Maple wood top that I paid extra for. I've had this bass for a few years, and its just time for a new one to get me playing again. This bass is in mint condition, and one of the best sounding basses I have ever played!!!

    Dropping bass price, and pricing it to sell!!!
    Price - $1,800 U.S. (Paid over 4k for it from the builder).

    I will pay shipping in full with insurance - only ship conus. Will be willing to ship oconus for the right talkbasser, but they'll have to pay shipping.
    I pay a ton of extra money to have everything professionally packaged by my friends at the UPS store, usually costing at least $100+ dollars. See my feedback for more info.

    NO TRADES!!!

    Stunning! How would you describe the tone?

  7. Thanks!
    It has a really good growl to it, but because of the preamp it has a really broad range. I've enjoyed playing anything from Jazz, Latin, R&B, to Heavy rock!
    I've been talking to Cliff the last two days about my two future builds and getting more excited, someone send me a good offer and this can be yours :)

    Figured I'd add a little bass porn to the thread. The only bass for sale is the 5string fretless at the top.
