    Ok so about 6months ago I had about ten 4 string basses. Now I'm down to three. I was really contemplating holding on to this one but I think I'm gonna offer it for sale so here goes...

    This Bee bass is an extremely beautiful custom. I love the fretboard. It's also so easy to get a variety of killer tones. The neck has a P-bass feel to it which makes it really easy to slap.

    Swamp ash body with an okume top
    Body is "worker bee" with a "knee bee" lower horn, which makes it very comfortable.
    Delano PJ pickups, master volume, passive tone, pickup blend.
    3-band active EQ by Bee Basses.

    Asking $1500

    Only saw one of these once in person, was down in Austin. Had to ask the bassist if I could try it between sets. Great bass, best live sound I can remember.

    What is the weight and nut width?
    How would you describe the tone(s)?

    Thanks.

    Bump for a truly stellar bass.

    I am a prior owner.

    Why did I sell it?

    GAS :crying:

    It weighed 8 lb 2 oz on my digital scale...

    BUMP so that hopefully the seller moves it!

    Although he may regret selling it!

    Fred Bolton makes outstanding instruments, and the Delano's--
    Wow.
