    Local sale fell through, so this is back on, with a reduced price!

    Available for purchase
    : Custom Novax (Ralph Novak) 4-string fanned fret, headless bass!

    • Headless 4 string

    • Bookmatched, highly figured walnut top

    • 5 piece maple and wenge back

    • Black/walnut/maple accent stripe

    • Maple neck, ebony fretboard

    • 33" to 35" scale lengths

    • Lipstick pickups by Curtis Novak (excellent sounding pickups, no relation to Ralph!)

    • Dual volume controls, master tone

    • Shipped in “rifle” case (Yes, it’s an actual rifle case; Ralph cut out foam to fit the bass!)

    • Nice “igig” bass gig-bag available for a bit extra [www.flyigig.com , Limited Edition model G525]

    Unfortunately, Ralph is no longer making custom instruments, and this is in pristine condition! Easy to play, and great sounding!

    New Price: For Talkbass members: $2800 shipped (or best reasonable offer) to the lower 48! [Will consider shipping elsewhere for actual shipping costs.]

    I’m a guitarist, and I play a Novax guitar. I dream about playing bass, but really can’t focus on both.

    Fantastic instrument!

    [I haven't sold here before, but I'm: "Marc's Gear Outlet" on Reverb; "mwhy" on TGP; "marcwhy" on the Jazz Guitar Forum, etc. and have a stellar buyer/seller record!]

    Right on, thanks! It's a fun instrument.

    Favorite quote from a Novax owner: "Before Novax, swarmed by groupies after the set. After Novax, swarmed by guitar nerds."

    Thanks! It's well-balanced when standing for long gigs.
