    I'm semi-retired now, and have been selling some great items. Over 90% of my gigs are now on upright, so I'm reducing to one BG. This is a special five-string Whaleback that Pete made for an endorser. It has a beautiful redwood lace burl top, with matching headstock and pickup covers. The neck is fantastic, and has a really nice fingerboard(cocobolo?). Comes with original case. Also has the upgraded East 3-band preamp. Asking $2500.00 shipped to continental USA. Bass is in southeast Wisconsin area. I would call it 9/10 only because it's not new. No dings, belt rash, etc.. I will post pics later today after resizing them for TB.

    Specs? Scale, spacing, weight?

    Sure you don't need a really nice Roscoe?

    This bass has a 35" scale, with 18mm string spacing at the bridge. It weighs 8 lbs, 1 oz. I will be traveling for the next week or two, so will not be able to get back to inquiries immediately. I will check TB occasionally, and try to keep in touch.

    Just got back from New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. If you've never been, you have to go! Looking to deal on the Skjold. It's a unique piece, but I'm seventy years old, and I'm selling off a lot of stuff. My 61 Precision went to Chicago. Again, only trade would be Bergantino AE210. I still do 7-8 gigs a month, but I need lighter speakers(my Euphonic Audio VL-210 had to go).

    Sorry, been offline for a few days. I have a deal in motion for this bass. Will update one way or the other.

    Deal has been finalized. Thanks for the interest. I will have a fantastic Millennia TD-1 dual tube/solid state preamp up soon. The Avalon U5 is sold, but I just can't justify hanging on to the TD-1.
