    Here's something for us doublers:

    Knutson Custom DLX Electric Upright Bass (Two pickup model)

    This bass is about 10 years old, and was made with a custom Black/Blue/Teal Green sunburst that was done by Michael Dolan (a personal friend of the builder). My friends dubbed it "The Blue Marlin", but it's more of a teal green in color.

    More info can be found on The Messenger Upright Electric Bass

    Bass includes tripod stand, Blue Heron gig bag, and SKB flight case.

    I can take pics, which I don't have any of right now, but I do have a YouTube video from my church that shows me playing the bass. You can hear it and see it here:

    Knees to the Earth.mp4 - YouTube

    I'm asking $2750 or best offer. Bass guitar trades will be considered. I'm selling this bass because I don't play it very much and it's a sweet bass just sitting in the corner but it should be getting played. I have two acoustic uprights that I play, so this one can find a home with someone who will put it to good use.

    Bump, these are phenomenal basses, I used to have one!

    You can see if John Knutson wants to buy it back.
    About 5 years I was getting ready to sell mine and contacted him with a simple setup question. He said he had none in stock and needed a shop bass to show people. I dropped by his place, he checked it out and bought it on the spot, giving me a very fair price. Of course this was expedited by the fact that we both live in NorCal.

    Best of luck, I see you are a middle school music teacher...you must be a brave soul!

    BUMP. Looking for high end 5-string bass guitars, fretted or fretless. Will keep it if the right trade or sale doesn't come along. Can add pics if need be.

    Sorry, I'm just not into Warwicks. I'm pretty picky when it comes to trades, as the Knutson is a great bass and if I kept it that's okay with me. It's just not getting much play time right now...so putting the feeler out there.

    I shouldn't have posted this bass. Sold then I renigged on the deal. I don't do that sort of thing on TB (check feedback). Feel terrible. Sorry Lotus.

    Bass is NO LONGER FOR SALE OR TRADE. Closing thread.
