OK...fine......$1750 then. I guess my children could lose a little weight anyway. Clement # 249. 5 String. Completed in September 2011. Exceptional instrument - I just cant justify so many basses (or at least thats what Ive been told - and boy, was I told). Huge sound with wide tonal variation. Very fast and comfortable neck. No dents, scratches, bruises or blemishes (though there is the odd tear stain from when I packed it up for the last time). Solid Claro Walnut body. Quarter sawn Maple neck. Highly figured Birds Eye Maple fretboard. Nordy NP5 and Nordy Big Split pups. Aguilar OBP-3 preamp. Hipshot bridge, tuners and knobs. 7.9 lbs. 34 scale. 19 mm string spacing at bridge. Strung with TI Jazz flats, but I'd probably put Fat Beams back on it if I wanted to do much slapping.

To get a new one from Tom would cost ~ $2500 (plus taxes and shipping). Im asking $1750. Shipping included to Canada. Will split shipping costs to the US. I am not interested in trades (if I didnt have to reduce the inventory, this wouldnt be for sale). Thanks for looking. And if nobody buys it....well then I'll just have to keep it. Not like I didn't try.
