    After years of not gigging regularly and acquiring many very expensive basses, I’m back to doing gigs and in need of some gear I can take to some seedier places. Ultimately I have a custom ordered bass that is very close to this as well as another catacomb that I will be hanging on to but I don’t want to gig those either.

    This bass is the absolute pinnacle of what Pete can do. There is not a single thing that could be better.

    The only thing that is different from when it was built is that it has hipshot ultralight oval tuners rather than the wood tuners. One of the wood tuners broke, but I have the other 4 and another one could be made if you so desire.

    Specs:
    Scale Length: 33"
    Strings: 5 string, tuned E-C
    Body: Chambered Obeche
    Top: Exhibition grade redwood
    Back: Same
    Catacomb Chamber option: Yes
    Neck: 1-piece quarter sawn maple
    Fingerboard: Katalox
    Hardware: Skjold/Hipshot Bridge
    Knobs: Solid katalox
    Tuners: hipshot ultralights
    Pickups: Skjold/Armstrong dual coils, in katalox wood shells
    Preamp/Electronics: John East Uni-pre

    Comes in top of the line reunion blues gigbag. It’s the nicest bag I’ve ever seen and it fits the thick body well.

    Currently set up E-C.

    The original price of this bass was $9000

    $6700 + shipping.
    I would consider a trade + cash for a Skjold Fretted 5 string, 34” scale. Drakkar, Firedrake, Whaleback, SkjoldSlayer, Offset 92. If you have something else to trade PM me. Only 33” and 34” basses will be considered.

    Here’s a video comparing this bass to a solid body Drakkar as well as a Fretless catacomb.
