    Really cool bass but I'm making an effort to thin the herd~

    Unless I've missed some fine scratches somewhere on the finish its in mint condition... and I'm the original owner.

    "Auburn Burst" finish
    Ash body
    34 scale
    Aero single coils
    I believe its a Pope 2 band (also goes fully passive with passive tone)
    19mm spacing
    Satin neck

    Great Jazz Bass tone and she plays beautifully. These are really good basses and not very common. It does "Marcus" and finger tones equally well. This model lists for about $3100 US, I'm asking $2100 with the softshell case and includes shipping to the cont US and to Canada . I'll ship anywhere else but buyer will have to pay shipping.

    No trades for now, as I am trying to cut down my basses:)

    Thanks for looking!

    Since I've been asked similar questions I'll clarify here;

    The Bottom Wave sounds *closer* to an Fclef than the Fodera NYC ( which I've owned.... and have their own thing). To me, the BW sounds/feels closer to a classic Jazz Bass in a 5.

    I've played this one - it's a beauty. Very nice bass, well priced, and as knowledgeable a seller as you'll find.

    Bump. Pm is returned.

    Just a reminder- I'm not into trades right now as I'm trying to thin the herd.

    Again, this bass has all the Fender vibe/tone you could want if you are in the market for that...and at a decent price point.

    I'm open to offers so lets talk!
