    Just moved out and recently separated, so this bass has got to go, unfortunately. This bass is amazing and it’s in really good shape. Played it a good amount, rehearsed with some bands, but always smoke free and handled carefully. It weighs about 7 pounds. It’s the Hornet, but I asked Fred to make it a little narrower than his spec and it is also a little thinner front to back. Spacing is also a little narrower than 3/4” at the bridge.

    4 string
    33.5” scale
    douglas fir top over mahogany...just the top is stained blue
    ash neck, pau ferro board, 24 fret, reverse headstock
    nordstrand big singles
    bee preamp, 18V
    hipshot hardware, black, A bridge, ultralite tuners

    You want this bass, thanks for looking..

    Sorry that circumstances have pushed things in this direction.

    I haven’t seen this bass up close and personal but my Bee is amazing and I expect this one is as well. Somebody will be very, very happy with this bass

    Great deal here! Really nice Bee! You should take a pic of the top outside in natural light. I think I saw the official pic of this one and it’s amazing! Good luck with the sale!

    It is pretty amazing - it’s unfortunate that the bridge is covering up a really cool ‘skull’ that was created from the bookmatched top...pouring rain right now, but I will add that when the sun comes back, thanks for the recommendation :D

    Price is somewhat negotiable, this bass needs to be moved. I haven’t had any interest yet, and I’m in somewhat of a pickle, thanks guys

    Im really surprised this bass is still available. Bees are amazing basses and even more so at this price.

    It’s certainly an awesome one, lightweight, great balance, good tone, super comfortable, I wish I didn’t have to let it go

    If I could justify another bass at this point, I’d be all over it
