    Price:
    2699
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    Kentucky
    Edit: I want to sale mainly but would entertain a like value or higher value trade. Possibly a special Roscoe Signature or Custom in certain woods and options. Message me 5 strings only.

    I'm offering this beauty up for sale to buy a Devon being built and almost finished by Devon. This bass has every option you can get with the exception of wood pickup covers from one of the best luthiers you will find anywhere. It's the first purchase I've had with MM style pickups and while it's sounds great I prefer the Soapbar style pickups better. This uses the Nordstrand Big Blademan and Nordie 3 band preamp with coil taps for each pickup and a Vintage tone control. The total build on this bass is $4000 plus the $200 D-Cline designs knobs I had made for the bass afterwards putting total build around $4200. I've owned some of the best basses you can find in the $3000-6500 range and nothing compares to the total value you get with these basses. Weight is 9.5 pounds and balances perfectly.

    Trades: Would possibly entertain excellent shape like value or greater 5 string basses. Will be picky because only selling to buy Devon he is building that I like better in specs.

    This bass has the Nordstrand electronics to make it sound and coo the Wal bass tone. Here is Carey Nordstrand exact electronics my bass has. Bass sounds amazing.

    This is Carey's take on the Wal bass sound. Listen to the video above as he gives a great demo of this tone.

    This bass is amazing in every way. You would expect this kind of attention to detail in a bass 2-3 times the amount.

    I think he’s wanting it for hisself as he really liked that Spalt bass. I’m getting this Buckeye bass in return with some cash added by me.
