    This is a near-mint Hammersmith. Since I knew that I was going to end up selling it, it was only played a few times, and is resting in a smoke free home.

    Asking for $750, which includes free shipping (in the US only). If you decide to pick it up locally, I will take you out to dinner for free!

    If you have any extra questions, I'm sure @MarkoYYZ will be happy to help fill in any info that I cannot answer.


    Black Hamersmith P4
    34" Scale
    Rosewood fretboard
    Geezer Butler Pickups
    Smartass Bridge
    Has the Black Pick Guard on it
    Comes with an extra Tort Pick Guard
    Comes with a Road Runner Gig Bag
    Frets are the standard "medium" size
    Nut width is 1.625"
    Radius is 12"
    Weight is 8.2 lbs

    The bass will be re-packaged in the same box, with all of the same foam/safeguards. It will be well protected during shipping.


    I'm going to put a new pic up tonight so that you can see how it is in this moment, but for now you may view this:

    I like the bass a lot, wish I had money for more basses..

    I am curious, though.. why are you selling and why did you know you were going to end up selling it? (Its probably the same answer).

    I ordered a custom 5-String from Hammersmith. Marko knew it was going to take awhile, so he sent me the P4 to hold me over until my 5 was ready. Because I knew that my time with it would be temporary, and that it would soon be somebody else's baby, I handled it with kid gloves.

    I do plan on ordering a P from Hammersmith at some point in the future, but it's also going to be more of the custom route. I will definitely get Geezers on it, though, because they just sounded so vicious on this P.

    Entirely possible. 8.2 lbs is still a pretty good weight for a P bass, but it's usually our 2 pickup basses sometimes exceed 8lbs, with regular Pbass coming in lighter. Do you weigh the bass by itself, or do the old "me with bass" minus "me with no bass" trick?

    Just the bass, solamente.

    I'm curious about the status of your 5 string. They still have no functioning web site.

    The last time I talked to Marko, delivery was bumped to late November.
