    Edit: Would possibly trade to a high end 5 string Jazz bass. Message me what you have.

    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 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 Wal bass setup and specially designed Preamp that has gain control for each pickup to control the volume output for Series and parallel. Bass plays as good abuold is as good as any bass you will find.

    Shame ! No way to put soap bars inside those casings ? Carey would most likely make it happen

    I haven’t played this particular version of blades, but I have the single row version and they’re great.

    Absolute bottom dollar on this bass is $3299 shipped. This bass and all the Devon basses I've had made are better in every area than any of the Custom Roscoes, Benavente's, Warriors, MTD's, STR's, Ristola's, Laklands and many more high end basses I've played. Build, Playability, and attention to detail will blow you away on this bass.

    I’m not sure what you mean but this isn’t the first time you’ve added ridiculous comments on my sales add. If your not interested please don’t clutter my threads up.
