    Hello talkbass,
    I'm looking to trade or sell my Jon Hill Custom bass for something more fitting to my sound. Here are the specs that's I know,

    34' scale
    24 frets
    Neckthrough
    1.5 nut width
    Bartolini pickups
    Bartolini preamp 2 band eq
    Push/pull active/passive
    Schaller tuners
    Hipshot bridge
    Ebony fretboard with abalone dots
    Weighs between 9.5 and 10lbs

    Absolutely no playability issues, plays fast and easy! Has some bumps and dings, but nothing extreme to speak of. The bridge was missing a screw when I bought it, so I replaced that and had it all checked out. The bridge is a little off kilter, so I had my tech check it out but it has no issues and is completely stable. This beast stays in tune great, and has zero intonation problems. Will come with a combo soft/hard case.

    As for trades, I'm looking for the following, but am open to other offers for basses plus cash, and class D bass heads.

    -Spector
    -Warwick
    -Zon
    -Modulas
    -G&L
    -Rickenbacker

    Otherwise 1200 shipped to the lower 48

    Jon Hill is a fine luthier. I've seen his work product in person.

    +1 on that! He's a Cleveland dude and I've met him in person, visited his shop, and played a number of his basses. He's a very talented guy and his builds are tip-top notch.
    GLWTS!!

    I bought and returned this bass at Guitar Center because of the bridge issue. Wish I would have kept it now knowing what they go for!

    I think this is Scotti Hill's (Skid Row) relative. Also I think Tom Araya from Slayer played one of Hills basses too.

    I've always wanted to road trip to meet this guy. He's a legend.

    Back on the market with redone bridge which is spot on. Would ideally like to trade for a spector euro lx 4 or 5. Open to other offers still!

    I believe this may be 35" scale.
