    SOLD

    This bass was built by Ron Couts for the 2007 Namm show.

    It's a very nice playing and great sounding jazz bass. Perhaps the biggest attention getter is the paint job on the back of the bass which always gets comments. It's unusual but I've grown to like it a lot in the time I've had this bass.

    34" scale birds eye maple neck with black blocks and binding.
    Aero pickups in 70s position with Audere 3ZB preamp.
    Swamp ash chambered body with mytle burl top.
    Hand carved raised 'pickguard' on body.
    Unique neck joint cover that gives more of a neck-thru feel.
    Weight is 10lbs.

    Asking $1500 shipped in the US. More pics here

    19mm and a case is included.

    You're welcome to offer trades but I'm not wanting for much at the moment so cash is king!

    Very Cool, never seen anything quite like that.
     
  7. I'd make musical love to that ax in a minute- my wallet doesn't feel the same way, though(NOT saying it's not worth the asking price- just that I'm broke). :atoz:

    My old bass! I bought it from Ron right after the NAMM show in 07. I wish I had the cash to buy her back...killer bass!!!

    As the original owner I'm curious if you think my asking price is reasonable. Not asking what you paid (unless you're ok with saying) just if I'm in the ballpark!

    It's very comfortable, maybe a little deeper front to back than my Sadowsky but not by much.

    Definitely not a tree trunk!
