    This bass was made in late 2019, and is in excellent condition. It's an amazing instrument, with a stunning Spalted Maple top that rivals anything you could possibly get anywhere else. You know you want this!

    Looking to get $2,250 + $95 shipping (in the continental USA) or local pickup just west of Boston, MA

    Willing to trade for a Kubicki Ex Factor (4-string, fretted)

    GORGEOUS bass! Any interest in a high end custom 4 string besides the Kubicki?

    Note: the bass just got a setup and the action is super low and fast. No more buzz!

    Sweet. Nice demo! I have this 5 up for trade:
    For Sale - Modulus M 92
    And a very sweet Pete Hanewinckel 6 I'd trade.

    Those basses sound super cool, but not quite what I'd be looking for in a trade!

    I'm about to reduce the price again, hit me up if you have other trades than what I listed. I'm pretty open to suggestions and offers at this point. I want to find this bass a new home!
