Here's an incredible bass. Mike Brown was one of Carl Thompson's protégés like Darrin Huff, Ray Rogers, Pete Hilton, and many others. Build quality is phenomenal, like the best you could imagine. Definitely on par with Smith, Fodera, or CT. Bass features mahogany body with bacote top. Hard rock maple neck, ebony fingerboard with bacote dots. Very light, 8ish pounds. Definitely the lightest bass I've ever owned. Nordstrand big singles and Aguilar OBP-3 pre make up the electronics. The scale is 34.5 with full 19mm bridge spacing, although the Hipshot hardware is fully adjustable. Comes with moulded HSC. Asking $2800 or trade for 5 strings of same caliber (I'd really like a singlecut again). Mike doesn't build basses anymore, so get her while ya can!!! Thanks TB!
