    This is another bass in the "I'm not convinced that I want to sell it" category. This is my first 6 string from Karl Hoyt. The body has a beautiful curly walnut top. It has a neck through design with a neck that has behaved very well. I've got the action set very low on this. It is 32" scale and strung EADGCF. For any of you that have been to a Steve Lawson house concert at my house, this is the bass that he used a couple of times when he wanted a fretted bass. This is a fully hand built bass.

    The Roland GK-3B is permanently mounted to this bass and is included.

    Price includes shipping and a gig bag or hard case of my choice.

    These are Bartolini M5 classic bass soapbars (M56CBC). To get the cleanest possible sound, this is a passive bass with the pots being volume-volume. Both pots have push-pull switches. The neck pot switches between single and double coil. The bridge pot switches between no tone capacitor and tone capacitor. Both pushed in is double coil and no tone capacitor for a nice clean tone.

    Sweet bass. Would you please provide the string spacing at the bridge (in mm, if possible) and the neck width at the last fret and the nut?

    BTW, if it helps, the spacing at the bridge is the narrowest that you can make the Hipshot bridge do.

    Great, thanks.

    Given the spacing at the nut I'm guessing the nut width is about 52 mm?

    It is a great bass. If I didn't own 3 32-inch-scale 6-string basses, I wouldn't even offer this one up for sale.

    Played it. Can't sell it. I forgot how low the action is on this one and how beautiful it sounds.
