    This is a phenomenal piece of work ; really not much too say other than that. Built by the legendary Roger Giffin. Really just don't love adjusting to short scale , but that said in no hurry to move if if nothing interesting pops up. It's pretty near mint condition and weighs nothing ; specs are below . Also using the pro pics since they will capture better than my iPhone; only gigged it one time looks same as in pics .


    Mint Roger Giffin Hollowbody Short Scale Bass
    Master Grade Ebony Hand Stained Top
    Mahogany Body with Flame Koa Back and Koa Backplates
    5A Bookmatched Flame Maple Neck
    Handmade Rosewood Custom 4 String Bridge
    Indian Rosewood Headstock Vaneer and Fingerboard with Abalone Lines
    Custom Handmade Koa Pickup Covers and Knobs, Rosewood Switch Cap
    Custom TV Jones Bass Pickups
    Ghost Piezo System Installed
    Chrome Hardware / Hipshot Tuning Pegs / Custom Reunion Blues Case

    Trade wise prefer 4 strings and obviously normal 34 scale

    Trade value is near $4000; not a cheap bass new or used .

    Wow. Short scale is not something I can play but that is fantastically beautiful.
