    Moving to the west coast and one of the beasts has to go. This one got the short straw!

    Big sound on this bad boy. Very nice condition. Not really for arco, but you already new that. Come get it at a big discount.

    I was just at Shanks Strings picking up a bass, and would have left it there on consignment, but there is a small issue I hadn't noticed, and fixing it now would cut into my profit. The sound post is a little too big, and it's pushing up slightly on the top (see detailed pic). Mike says it's not a big issue, but if he were to sell it, he would have to fix it for $300. So, instead of paying $4k at Shanks, come down to Williamsburg, VA and get it for $800 cheaper. Even if you go for the repair, you'll still be saving $500.

    Extra $100 for the Full Circle. Thin fabric case only.

    It's a standard plywood New Standard if that's any help. Let me know if you have questions!

    From The New Standard Bass - Cleveland Model
    I confirmed the string length. I'm assuming all other measurements are good.

    String Length 42" / 106.7 cm.
    Body Length 45 1/4" / 114.9 cm. (back)
    Upper Bout 21 1/8" / 53.6 cm.
    Lower Bout 26" / 66.1 cm.

    Great bass. I drove to Pawtucket last year to help my son buy one from Zachary Martin. Spent time in the shop with an assortment of 5 basses, and Will de Sola himself. Simply an excellent experience, and these are awesome instruments. Straight up, if this instrument had been available last year at this price, I would have made a beeline for Virginia. Somebody please buy it, watching it sit here at this reasonable price is killing me.
