    I've decided to sell my incredibly beautiful green custom jazz bass.

    Here's an old picture that doesn't do the bright color justice. The picture in my avatar is a better representation of the color, but this shows the hardware and details of the figuring on the body quite well.


    Click here for a huge close-up picture of that picture of the body The quilt is stunning. Here are the specs:
    • Lasido neck - maple with ebony fingerboard - Jazz spacing, slightly V-Shaped (Lasido is the company that makes Godin, Seagull, and Norman guitars - solid high quality stuff).
    • Warmoth Body - quilted maple over alder
    • Wilkins Paint job with matching headstock - this paint job is incredible - pictures do not do justice! Wilkins does work for Sadowsky, Lull, and other high end builders and it shows in this bass! You will never see a better finish. You'll see as good, but never better.
    • Schaller Hardware
    • Bartolini single coil pickups
    • Wired passive - Vol/Blend/Tone - control cavity is big enough to easily accomodate active EQ. Fourth knob could be drilled in line with the first three.
    • Hard case (old)
    • Assembled by expert luthiers at Pink Guitarz in Centreville, VA
    This bass sounds and plays fantastic, has a bright tone due to the maple and ebony. The fret ends stick out ever so little. The neck hung behind the guitar counter of a local store for years before I bought it - the ebony has dried/shrunk a tiny bit causing the fret ends to stick out ever so slightly. Noticable, but I have not found the need to fix for my playing. However, it is truly goregeous and plays and sounds fantastic. Just not my style any more.

    Well over $1600 invested. Asking $650 plus shipping. Very Good condition, rarely played (which is why I'm selling it).
