  2. WHOA! @bassvirtuoso check this beauty out!

    FYI, AFAIK none of the woods in that bass would cause a CITES issue, so it would probably be fine. Sure wish I had the dough to grab this beauty. Heck of a price too.

    Thanks, so much for the sanity check on CITES. I revised the listing to reflect international shipping possibilities.

    Canada, Eh!
    Is that perhaps the wrong spec sheet listed? (Doesn't look like a 3-piece mixed wood neck,- nor a maccassar fretboard - and I cannot make out the pearl face dots in the photos...)

    Yep. I’m not sure why I said pearl face dots. I’m the one who wrote out the spec sheet! Derrr! Big time oversight on my part.

    Here’s the pic showing the 3 piece neck construction.
