    Time to clear out the collection!

    Up for sale is my trusty Veillette Singlecut 5-string.
    This was our entry into the "modern magnetic pickup bass" market way back in the early 2000s, and Joe and I worked together on the design.

    This bass is almost exactly identical to the one that was reviewed in BP:

    www.veilletteguitars.com/press_bassplayer.shtml

    The top is even from the same plank. The only difference is the finish - this one has lacquer finish, which is a bit nicer than the satin poly on the BP instrument.

    Specs:

    35" scale
    2x Citron pickups
    2-band EQ
    Flame maple top
    Poplar body
    Maple neck
    Wenge fingerboard
    Wenge & brass "dovetail" bridge, fully intonatable.

    This is a great bass with a slim and very comfy body shape.
    Tonally, it has a modern, clear voice with a strong but balanced low end, nice growl, and a clear but well-integrated treble - not "clicky" or harsh at all. A great all-purpose tone with a lot of flexibility.

    PICS:

    Condition is quite good, with a small finish check on the face and a couple of very minor dings. Overall, solid and nice - I'd say 8.5 to 9 out of 10.

    Asking $1900 plus shipping. These retailed for high 3K to low 4K range depending on options - this is a steal!
