    I bought this bass this past summer from another TBer for a project that didn't happen. So it is up for sale. Since I bought it I had it brought to my luthier to have a ramp built and installed. It is removable. It is simply stuck on with double sided tape. Really nice professional work.

    He also went through the bass and has clean bill of health as did the previous owner.


    Here's the specs on this bass as I have been told by the previous owner:

    Body: Top - burled maple/
    Core - 2ply Light & Dark Mahogany
    Back – Chesnut

    Neck: Embuya / Burled Ebony / Honduran Mahogany

    Fretboard: Macassar Ebony

    Pickups: Nordstrand custom mm & p style

    Preamp: Aguilar OBP 3

    Other accessories: Pickup Covers, Wood Knobs, Headstock matching wood with fretboard
    3 switches (on-off/mid freq/mm pickups coil tap)

    Here is the original ad where I purchased the bass that has a lot of information on it.


    I am asking what I payed for it which is $1950 plus shipping. I was given a great deal so just paying it back. The ramp cost $100 which is also included.

    No bass trades. If you have a vintage telecaster player grade 1968-70 or older Les Paul we can talk.

    Here are the pics. Stunning bass.









    I am located in the Montreal area. Price is firm. No lowballers please.

    I have been asked a few times about the knobs and switch controls. They are as follows:

    Knobs: volume, blend, bass. Mid, treble. Push pull passive active on volume.

    Switches: mid freq, coil switch, on/off.

    I thought all bumps were free. Even this one.

    Sexy axe, no doubt about it.

    I called it the "Woody". Super pretty in looks and sound. It did have piezo pickup. But in my own opinion the actual pickup combination is the very best. Take advantege amd be smart buying this bass people. It's a trouble free deal, much better that one new. Again! In my personal opinion. Good luck and a free bump for this beuty.
