    From the original Reverb listing.....

    "This is probably the best bass i ever had and one of the most beautiful basses out there. The kind of details that were added during the manufacture makes it probably the best bass made by Colibri Guitars and basses.

    I had this made back in 2018, if I recall correctly. Is a one of a kind bass, made with carefully selected woods, and the best components by Master Luthier Rodrigo Javier Castellanos.

    It is a neck through construction.
    Bass body is made of light American swamp ash, with a Buckeye top, with real 24K gold Incrustations (gotta see it to appreciate its beauty) it has a black layer Accent in between the top And body (as suggested by Carey Nordstrand). The neck is made of 7 pieces of maple/wenge, with a top grade birdseye fretboard. The bridge is a Schaller 2000 bridge with Schaller Davincis and S-lock in (guess what?) gold finish. It has a brass nut, double action trussrod. The color is a washed turquoise, that blended with the buckeye and the gold it gives an amazing eye catching result. It has a matching headstock, side luminay markers with black circles, and is finished in high gloss. As per the electronics, it has Nordstrand Nordwalls(Nordstrands take on the Dingwall pickups) with buckeye wooden covers and a Nordstrand 3b preamp, with wooden matching knobs.

    The weight is 10lb, scale is 34”, 18mm spacing.

    The sheer beauty of this bass is undeniable. Striking to say the least. And she sounds GREAT! The Nordstrand preamp and pickups are outstanding. Neck is extremely "playable"; very very comfortable. You can tell an amazing amount of work has gone into this one of a kind bass. I've done the best I can capturing the beauty in my pics...

    Will ship in the original "UNDER COVER" heavily padded gig bag. Of course, it has been set up, restrung, polished and cleaned, including all electronics.

    Cash is king, but I will consider trades.
    Thanks for looking. Stay safe and healthy, wear your masks, and enjoy the rest of the summer as best you can!
