    Hey guys, I’m thinking of parting with this bass. It’s an amazing bass, but it’s time to let it go.

    One-of-a-kind Knutson Messenger Custom DLX Electric Upright Bass with a custom blue-green sunburst finish. I’m the original owner.

    From the Knutson Messenger Bass website:

    1) Messenger™ Bass Custom DLX model
    Fully-hollow carved spruce top, with Messenger/Barbera active electronics...$3,950

    2) Heavy duty Cordura padded bag...$150

    3) The SBK molded plastic flight case with purchase of bass (to use with padded bag) ...$300

    4) Freestand™ Tripod...$150

    5) Custom Colors...$100

    Total: (note... these are ONLY available directly from Knutson)...
    $4650 + shipping.

    The tripod I have is dented, but it still works. The price out the door on this bass is $2250. That’s a great deal!

    As a fellow owner, this bass has been so useful to me. Plenty of times when there was no space for the acoustic. Nice and loud with zero feedback and sits well in a band mix.

    And my favorite, always a conversation piece. So many people would remark about it and helped me stand out among the many bassists in LA. I hope to never sell mine!

    And I love that extra rare green color! Perfect for today!

    These are great basses. They have a wonderful feel, very comfortable for those coming from DB, and that Barbera pickup is great!
