    I traded for this recently as I always wanted to try a Stambaugh and I'm glad I did, very nice work indeed, but the reality is that it's never going to get any gig time with my blues/rock band so I'm looking to trade for a more traditional looking bass.

    Here's the specs..

    set neck
    34" scale
    1 3/4" nut
    17.5 mm string spacing
    ash body
    macassar ebony top
    birdseye maple board with wenge binding and ebony blocks
    Nordstrand NJ single coils in 60's jazz position
    Nordstrand 2 band pre with active/passive switch
    Hipshot chrome hardware
    oil finish
    Dunlop straplocks
    Comes with TKL case

    The previous owner mentioned a couple of marks on the bass but I would never had noticed them if he hadn't mentioned it. The truss-rod cover was missing when I got it though I'm sure Stambaugh would supply another, I wondered if the neck wasn't particularly stable because of this but I haven't had to touch the truss-rod since I got it. It also seems that the output when both pickups are blended is not as much as when each pickup is soloed though it's not enough to bother me.

    I normally play 19mm string spacing but found the 17.5 quick to adapt to and it made some stuff easier to play. Neck on this is super comfortable and it's a very light 8.2lbs.

    I'm looking for a Fender style 5 below 9.5lbs. And am willing to add or receive cash for the right bass!

    EDIT: I'll also offer this up for sale at $1700 shipped in the conus.

    Weird, working for me. Anybody else having problems? Chris I can PM pics if you like?
     
  11. Pics workin fine for me. On mobile app, even. I been starin at this beauty since it wuz put up. The neck reminds me of my Fender Am Del "Geddy" 5, an I can't afford it! A beautiful marriage of classic an modern. Chris Stambaugh's stuff amazin, an this my fave of his yet.

    I got my own Stambaugh at a similar price used, and it's the best bass purchase I've ever made.

    If you don't care about the body shape, this looks to be a Jazz bass of the very highest boutique quality, at a midrange off-the-rack price. Super comfy weight, too.
