    Hi,

    Here is my favourite bass for sale:
    a Benavente Vortex 6-string fretless.
    Custom made for me during 2005, finished in 2006. (build diary)
    Limba (Korina) body, set-neck construction with 3-piece Maple neck with graphite bars.
    Acrylized Ebony fingerboard with fretlines.
    Amboyna burl top and matchin headstock and matching knobs.
    HipShot tuners and bridge, inlayd Dunlop strap locks.
    Benavente slim pickups (in wide housing), Benavente 3-band pre-amp.
    Original internal GK pickup.
    34" scale length.
    Benavente black leather gig bag.

    Designed to be light wheight and well balanced. And it is.

    Some more photos
    and even more
    - note that these were taken before the wood knobs came.

    For some reason I don't think I have sound clips of this one on-line.
    I'll see if I can get some recorded and uploaded next week. It was used on the two gospel CDs I played on though, sound clips of those can be had here.

    Price: USD $2,900 firm. Excluding shipping. (the bass is in Norway) Open for international sale. Price in NOK 20.000,- and USD price calculated March 14th.
    It's tip-top condition, both cosmetically and structurally.
    New retail price on one like this was USD $3800 in 2005 (IIRC). It's more now.
    I realize the price is perhaps a bit high compared to other used custom instrument. But this one is mint, and I am only selling to raise money. And I like the bass so much, I'll rather keep it if the price is not met. :cool:

    Why am I selling? :help:
    Well I don't have any gigs. And I need the money, as I am moving and getting married. I've listed some other basses for sale as well. I'm thinking that I'll keep one of them, and it'll be the one that is left. Here are the others:
    Surine Regency X 6-string
    Conklin Sidewinder 9-string

    No trades, I'm doing this only because I need the money. It's a lovely instrument, and I would honestly rather keep it. And if nobody is insterested, I will. :hyper:

    In the unlikely event that all my basses are sold, I'll have to buy a new one. That'd be fun too.

    What is the thin black thing between the bridge and the bridge pickup?

    This one is now no longer for sale! :)
    The wedding is over and paid for, and my wife won't let me sell this one anyway! :D So it stays with me.
