    It’s very rare to see a Le Fay offered for sale and with such good reason. They tend to be keepers and you’ll only want to add others. The sound and ergonomics are unparalleled - I’m a huge fan! This is the most tonally versatile bass I've ever owned - flat out amazing! The string to string balance, punch and sustain are unreal. The evenness and presentation of notes rivals the best carbon neck instruments. In addition to a traditional JB sound, it can also cop very convincing Music Man and Ken Smith tones due to the pickup placement and 6-way rotary switch; P-Bass? No problem!

    • Ash body
    • Wenge (thick!) flat sawn top (upcharge)
    • Acrylic open-pore satin finish
    • Padauk carbon reinforced set neck w/ magnetic truss rod cover access
    • Ebony fingerboard
    • Zero Fret/Nut
    • Mother-of-Pearl position markers.
    • 24-fret with "premium" fret work (upcharge)
    • 3 Single-coil pickup system
    • Volume with active/passive switch push/pull
    • 6-position rotary switch - varies combinations of parallel, single coil, series operation (upcharge)
    • Active Bass & Treble Controls
    • Passive Tone (operates in both Active and Passive modes)
    • Le Fay proprietary hardware, electronics and pickups.
    • 1.75 nut width
    • 19mm spacing
    • 34” scale
    • 9lbs 11oz
    • Mono M80 Vertigo case [included (was purchase separately at $250)]

    Price one out, add in options, factor exchange rate, import fees and build time (ouch). This bass built new would land at nearly $7500; that's not including the case! Instant gratification at $4650 Shipped/Insured within the lower 48. Low-ball offers will be kindly ignored. Please PM with any inquiries. Willing to meet for a local deal. Paypal ok.
