    I absolutely HATE to do this, but I don't have a choice. Some fool ran me off the road night before last and I'm pretty much out of a car and broke. I have to sell my DP to get money to try and get a car. This sucks.

    Anyway, here's the specs and all...

    6 string/ 36" scale
    gaboon ebony fretless fingerboard...unlined.
    maple/padauk neck
    ash core; maple, paduak body
    1 Bartolini quad coil/9v pre
    Hipshot bridge; 18mm spacing

    Comes with a hard shell case, strap and strap locks.

    The only flaw I've found with the bass is a slight dip in the neck around the 12th fret. It doesn't bother me and with the wide neck, it kind of makes it easier to play...to me at least.

    This bass has only been gigged once and it performed absolutely stellar. Killer tone, mwah, and punch. I really don't want to sell this bass, but I absolutely have no other choice right now.

    I don't want to put it up on ebay so someone please buy it and give it a good home.

    Pics can be seen in THIS THREAD and I have some more detail pics for serious inquiries.

    I'm asking $1500 OBO +shipping.

    Serious buyers only please. My email is goldfalconk4t@aol.com

    Thanks.

    I wish I could afford that.

    Besides, I like 34" scale. Sweet bass though.

    Peace

    looks like warrior meets ritter and ct... very nice.. come on somebody, buy this beauty..

    btw... have you tried bassgear.com and thedudepit... e-bay might turn you some good results though... you might get more than what you're asking... and if you stick a reserve on there... you're all good. i sold my DP on there a couple weeks ago.

    good luck man

    Thanks for posting that prog. Thanks everyone for you comments.

    I'm sure it would sell on ebay, I just would hate not knowing if the bass was going to a good home:(

    Dave,
    I sent you a PM. You hit the nail on the head...I'd rather know the bass was going to a good home than to some joe shmoe on ebay.

    I sent you my phone number to call me, but rest assured the dip is NOT anything major...like I said, it actually kind of makes it easier to play that high up...but go ahead and give me a call either today or tomorrow and we'll talk. That way I won't have to put her up on ebay:)
