    There’s a certain bass I want badly! Big price drop while that one is available!!!

    Unbelievable Roger Giffin Hollowbody Short Scale Bass. This work of art was built with so much love and care. Every detail was meticulously thought through and executed flawlessly.

    Roger Giffin (“guitarmaker to the stars") has built for Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, Mark Knopfler, David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, and many more. Giffin also ran the Gibson Custom Shop for a while. Roger has also taught builders such as Paul Herman of Wal Basses. There are not many builders as legendary as Roger.

    - Master Grade Ebony Top
    - Honduras Mahogany Core
    - Flame Koa Back and Koa Backplates
    - 5A Bookmatched Flame Maple Neck
    - Handmade mac Ebony 4 String Bridge
    - Mac Ebony Headstock Veneer
    - Mac Ebony Fingerboard with Abalone Lines
    - Custom Handmade Koa/maple Pickup Covers
    - Handmade Koa, Mahogany, ebony Knobs
    - Koa Switch Cap
    - TV Jones thunder-blades
    - Ghost Piezo System Installed
    - 30” scale
    - 7.0 lbs
    - Chrome Hardware / Hipshot Tuning Pegs

    Trade Value is right around $4500. I changed this to trade only because I had a bass sell and now I do not need to sell. If you would like to purchase, feel free to make an offer. I’m not looking for anything in particular, so send whatever you’ve got! Trades plus cash to me are also welcome.

    Wonderful tones, esp. the piezo/neck combo. And beautiful as well. Good luck with the sale.

    Nice bass! Also yes, I think you're one of the very few people actually saying piezo correctly (pee-AY-zoh).

    I’m really surprised that this one has hung around as long as it has. You’ve got to find a way to have a broader audience hear the tones that this thing puts out. The beauty of it is just an added benefit.

    I very often don’t see why some of the basses for sale here cost $3500+ but this bass is a wooden work of art!

    Definitely agree. Roger knocked it out of the park with this. The bridge alone is enough to be marveled at.
