    Hey Guys,

    I recently bought this bass from a TalkBass member, the original owner - a gentleman named Timothy. Here is the thread he posted:

    SOLD - Wyn 5 string, mint condition

    This bass is drop-dead gorgeous and I'm selling it with great reluctance. After much consideration, I have made the difficult decision to help relieve myself of debt. The wait is well over a year for a new Wyn bass considering Randy is involved in every single aspect of the process. Build quality is second to none.

    To get a further idea of the quality of Wyn basses please check out these videos on YouTube:

    This instrument is the One-Bass-to-Rule-Them-All type. Tone possibilities are endless. There's literally nothing this baby can't do.

    I'm asking $4300. Includes shipping CONUS and original gig bag.
    Please no trade offers.


    2011 5 string, spalted maple top, bubinga/wenge taper core neck, ebony fingerboard. Mint condition.
    34.5" Scale Length (excellent B string)
    Five body layers:
    AAAAA Spalted maple top
    Wenge prime tone layer
    Padauk secondary tone layer
    African mahogany core
    AAAAA Quilted maple back
    Custom bubinga and rosewood knobs, bubinga pickup covers, bubinga truss rod and electronic cavity covers
    Two Nordstrand Fatstack dual coil pickups
    Aguilar OBP-3 per amp with six control knob layout.

    Preamp Specs:

    1. Push/Pull Volume Control. (Down active/Up Passive)
    2. Blend Control
    3. Push/Pull Passive Tone Control/Coil Tapping (Down Humbucking/Up Single Coil)
    4. Treble Control
    5. Push/Pull Mid Control (Down 400hz/Up 800hz)
    6. Bass Control

    This is a great opportunity to snatch one of these in mint condition without the wait! Wyn basses don't show up often on the forum!

    Feel free to PM with any questions. As always, I'm available to chat, text, FaceTime or record audio samples for anyone who is interested.

    I love this bass... For the record, the wait is about 3 years for a new Wyn as of a few weeks ago... Yikes!

    I submitted a quote request and a lady responded. Basically that if I really wanted to I could place an order, but basically Randy doesn't want to take people's money and make them wait so long.
  7. this looks like the Ferrari of basses
