    Awesome P bass, the best I've played. The neck totally makes it. Plus it looks super cool in matte black with black hardware, which isn't even offered as a option on the Monarch P. On the Certificate of Authenticity it is listed as a "Monarch Standard-P Special". Excellent condition, one small mark on the back upper contour. Indian Rosewood board, to be replaced on new builds with Pau Ferro starting May 1st, or a $150 upcharge when ordering.

    I really don't want to sell this but my custom needs to be paid, so hurry before I sell something else first and keep this one. $3995 new, soon plus $150 for rosewood. Get this one for $2995 plus insured shipping in the US. Local pickup NYC/NJ available.

    I can't think of anything I'd trade for at the moment, but any trade would ideally include $2k+ cash. If you have a suggestion please 'Start a Conversation' to discuss.

    Specs:
    • Alder body
    • 3-pc Hard Rock Maple neck w/ Indian Rosewood fingerboard
    • 34″ Scale length, 4-string
    • 22 Frets (Large) w/ Synthetic Clay dots
    • Aguilar AG 4P-60 Pickup
    • Passive Electronics

    Oh man, awesome! GLWS. Drop a pair of white pups in this and it would look killer.

    Man oh man. My serious GAS days are behind me but this is causing a relapse. There's nothing I don't like about this. Fodera under 3K and matte black/RW?

    Damn you, Canadian Dollar.

    This won't last.

    Nut width? Maybe it’s the pic, but it doesn’t look as wide as a P back should be...

    The nut is 1 17/32", so slightly more narrow than a typical current 1 5/8” B neck and a bit wider than a 1 1/2” A (or J) neck nut width.
     
  6. Love it. Exact weight?

    So this one seems to be a cross between the Monarch P and the Monarch P Classic (the knob placement). Very cool! Any chance you could post a vid for sounds/aesthetics?

    Not at the moment, though really I think the video with Andy is a fantastic representation of the sounds available from the Monarch P, and certainly better than I'd create. Still, to me the real selling point is the playability of the neck.
