    I purchased #170 on this forum in 2011 knowing that it was to be an interim instrument used to learn fretless technique while another instrument was on order. I fell in love with the smoothness and playability of this bass over the last 2 years, and will definitely have another one of Tom Clement's creations in the future.

    19-34 Swamp Ash body Maple neck with Bloodwood board Nordstrand Dual coil bridge pickup. Pictures available here.

    Asking $1150 shipped within the continental US 48 states, including a Protec soft case.

    Believe I am the 3rd owner of this bass. I've never had it out of my office / music room and appearances suggest it's previous owners took just as good care of the instrument.

    At work right now so can't fix the hyperlink. Go to the Clement Bass site, click on the gallery menu and scroll to #170. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    What ever the hell that means. NOT HAPPY!​

    Sorry, no trades. If it were not for a TD fretless harp guitar on order which needs to be paid for, I would never sell this lovely fretless bass.

    Should mention that, while I currently have a "high C" set of strings on the bass, the nut is cut for a "low B" set.

    The bass sounds wonderful in either range.

    Wow, that's pretty...and pretty much exactly what I'd spec if I was ordering a new Clement. Passive volume and tone?

    Yes, passive.

    That was going to be tomorrow's tidbit of info in case I needed a bump! LOL

    Review of a Tom Clement Jon by Bass Whisperer TV.

    Price as new would be $1675, including swamp ash body and single Nordstrand Dual Coil bridge pickup.

    Save the waiting time for a new one to be built!
