    This bass is still being built and will be done in roughly 2-3 months. I am offering it up at a huge discount to recoup a little of the down payment I put down for the build. This build is $3000 and would sale more than that. This bass will have Pearl Inlay Blocks and Pearl Binding and I have them adding a Coil Tap switch for Single coil, and Dual Coil mode for this bass. It will be delivered to whoever buys it as soon as I receive it. Will also come with a custom heavy Duty Bacchus Gigbag similar to the Mono bags. These are the best Jazz bass on the market and compared the the Sadowski Metro Basses.

    Ebony fret board / pearl blocks and binding. 21 frets 34" scale
    Light ash body - 2 pc.

    I've had a few ask me about trades. This is a straight sale trying to recoup some of the money I've lost. You simply wont touch this bass under $3000 with what I've custom built in this bass. My loss is your gain.

    I own a Bacchus Woodline DX5. Best kept secret in the jazz bass world right now. Don't know about the lesser models, but the Woodline's craftmanship is as good or better than any of the US boutique jazz builders and it won't cost you an arm or a leg. Fine with me if the secret is kept, it will keep the prices down! You compared it to a Sadowsky Metro; the Woodlines are way better than Sadowsky Metros as far as craftsmanship. Pup and pre choice is on the buyer though.

    Hey campbems,

    I've drooled over several of the basses you've offered up, especially some of the Ibbys, and this one is as pretty as any of them. GLWTS!

    But, what I really want to know, after seeing him tear it up on SNL last week, do you know Sturgill Simpson? (Jackson is a small town, after all.) Thanks!

    It is 18mm string spacing like all their models.
