    If you're wondering what the slight movement is behind me, it's my 1 year old who started yelling at me shortly after I decided to record this and put the pressure on me to finish this clip ASAP, so please understand with a little more time and attention this bass will sound even more polished!

    This bass is in excellent condition - only found one ding (see pictures)
    8.6 lbs on my bathroom scale
    Brand new set of Marcus Miller Hi-Beams (DR)
    My setup/repair guy just looked the entire bass over and set everything up perfect

    Neck repair done on back of the neck by Ray himself (you can see it in the pics) it looks spectacular and there are zero issues.

    I'm really looking to sell this bass because I want to save up for a Citron Swallow bass. If you have a Citron bass definitely hit me up.

    If you are interested in this bass and have trade offers you can send them my way but I consider the trade value of this instrument much higher than the sale value and would be more interested in your instrument if it can net me the $1850.

    If anybody is curious as to why I'm selling it, you can look at my influences! I like 4 strings with flatwounds and play with a pick, of course the tonal diversity of this bass is very tempting for me to keep it but I'm really trying to develop my own sound and style and would rather have my money tied up in a bass that will help me get there.

    Any other questions, please feel free to ask!

    I'm getting some trade offers that I'm *mulling* over...

    I'd prefer a cash sale.

    In the meantime, let's think about the Geese
