    I am no longer playing out. I really do not have the energy for it anymore. I have been slowly selling off all my musical equipment. I am now selling thos bass made for me by Tom Clement, Clement basses. Tom’s basses are well made, high quality instruments as good as most other boutique bass luthiers.

    This build started in Dec 2016, completed and delivered at the end of Jan 2017 It was originally fretted; I shipped it back Tom to be defretted.

    It was primarily played in my smoke-free apt. practice room. I never got comfortable enough with fretless to play out with it.

    FedEx shipping anywhere in the CONUS.

    I own this bass's twin and it KILLS !!!!
    Very even sounding from top to bottom, very distinct... B string is fantastic and the highs really shine ;)
    Lacks a bit of personality compared to my Fodera but for "big" bands it sits more discretely in the mix... Seen from Europe a very "american sounding" instrument...
    Very light, slim neck, plus mine has the magnetic Bartolini dual so i can choose with the piezzo ^^ : a real joy for the money...

    Glws !!!!

    Killer deal! You can even get a pickup installed and be in funky-town for well under $2k.

    This ^

    I figure its the piezo w/o magnetic pickup that's stalled this listing. That price is great, I want to buy it on principle alone... :smug:

    Think of its similarity to Rob Allen or Turner Renaissance basses
