    Here is my favourite bass for sale:
    a Benavente Vortex 6-string fretless.
    Custom made for me during 2005, finished in 2006. (build diary)
    Limba (Korina) body, set-neck construction with 3-piece Maple neck with graphite bars.
    Acrylized Ebony fingerboard with fretlines.
    Amboyna burl top and matchin headstock and matching knobs.
    HipShot tuners and bridge, inlayd Dunlop strap locks.
    Benavente slim pickups (in wide housing), Benavente 3-band pre-amp.
    Original internal GK pickup.
    34" scale length.
    Benavente black leather gig bag.

    Designed to be light wheight and well balanced. And it is.

    Two photos - click for high resolution:

    Some more photos
    and even more
    - note that these were taken before the wood knobs came.

    For some reason I don't think I have sound clips of this one on-line.
    I'll see if I can get some recorded and uploaded next week. It was used on the two gospel CDs I played on though, sound clips of those can be had here.

    Price: NOK 20.000 firm. Excluding shipping. (the bass is in Norway)
    It's tip-top condition, both cosmetically and structurally.
    New retail price on one like this was USD $3800 (IIRC). It's more now.

    Why am I selling? :help:
    Well I don't have any gigs. And I need the money, as I am moving and getting married. I've listed some other basses for sale as well. I'm thinking that I'll keep one of them, and it'll be the one that is left.

    No trades, I'm doing this only because I need the money. It's a lovely instrument, and I would honestly rather keep it. And if nobody is insterested, I'll keep it. :hyper:

    In the unlikely event that all my basses are sold, I'll have to buy a new one. That'd be fun.
  2. how much in australian including shipping? pm me.
