    EDIT: New deal.......this has simply been sitting too long. So I'm now accepting offers. I'll give it 2 weeks from today (Monday, April 26th) and take the highest offer I get. So if you've had the slightest GAS over this bass, shoot me an offer. A low-ball offer may or may not get you the bass!

    For those of you who are not familiar with Lado, please do some research. Joe Kovacic has been building boutiques for quite a while. Aside from not doing his own electronics and pickups, his stuff is comparable to Alembics in fit, finish, construction, looks, etc (in my opinion).

    I'm considering trades on this for a bass that will be easier to sell. I simply don't play this and it's not fair to let it sit and collect dust. Again, if I take a trade on this, it will be for the purpose of flipping it, not necessarily keeping it.......unless, it's a bass from my wish list (see link in my signature)!!!


    - Ser # CDN-STUDIO-605-2132
    - 34" scale 5-piece NT Flamed Maple & Purpleheart neck.
    - Purpleheart and Flamed Maple stringers btn neck and body wings
    - A beautiful rich purpley-red Purpleheart top over Flamed Maple core w/ a gorgeously grained Mahogany/Sapele back. The pics don’t do it justice!
    - Gold hardware w/ 17mm spacing at bridge
    - High-gloss thick clear coat.
    - 3" at 24th fret, 2" at the nut
    - Gaboon Ebony board
    - Bartolini humbuckers w/ Bart TCT 3-band preamp (and extra 'black box')
    - Bathroom scale weight is 10-11lbs. (This thing is ALL heavy hardwoods too!!!)

    The condition is great. It has a slight scuff in the clear coat on the bottom edge of the lower horn. There is also a much less significant scuff on the lower edge by the jack. Lastly, there are 3 Small dimples- one on top by armrest, one on the edge just below knobs, and the other on the top edge of the upper horn. It had a pro fret leveling and crowning about a month ago. She's ready to rock!

    This is a beautifully built and amazing sounding example of Joe’s work.

    My price is $1000 $975 $955 $935 $915 $895 $875 = FINAL PRICE CUT plus shipping anywhere.

    It's a terrible thing that Joe's instruments aren't more well-known. They are top notch in tone, construction, and feel. They are some of the most versatile basses I've ever played. They can do it all from hard rock, to slap 'n pop, to smooth mellow, & warm. They are a bit brighter and punchier than most Bartolini equipped basses, probably because of the woods used. Flamed Maple, Purpleheart, and Walnut are very dense woods, and stunningly beautiful to boot!

    I can take a gigbag from one of my other basses for an extra $15. Or, just make that part of your offer!
  6. if I had money, you can be sure I'd get it. Gorgeous instrument from one of the best luthier in Canada.

    Lado basses are excellent, my ex brother in law had 2 and they were great. This one looks even nicer! Good luck!
