    Looking to raise some funds fast for something very specific. If it falls through, I'm pulling this sale...so if this interests you, ping me now. This is a time sensitive opportunity for me, so I'm willing to work out some type of (realistic) payment plan if needed.

    In any event, here's the bass:

    Serial Number: 12910 (not even 3 months old - BRAND NEW)
    Scale Length: 36"
    Neck: 1-piece mahogany, 4 bolts-on. mahogany/yellow heart nut. yellow heart truss rod cover and nameplate.
    Fingerboard: pau ferro or rosewood(?), 24 frets.
    Body: 3-piece mahogany.
    Finish: hand rubbed oil(just natural oil. Danish oil, Watco. Mostly Watco oils).
    Bridge: Hipshot style A bridge, black.
    Tuners: Hipshot Ultralights, black.
    Strap buttons: black.
    Outputs: one 1/4" mono on body with yellow heart/ebony football.
    Pickups: 1 kent armstrong passive soapbar pickup.
    Controls: volume, passive tone shaping, 3 way switch w/ mute, normal, treble defeat.
    Preamp: None - Carl's custom passive unit
    Control cavity: mahogany on body back

    Overall condition: mint - the bass has no noticeable nicks or scratches. It is essentially brand new. I picked this up from Carl at the very end of January. It has hardly any playing time on it since I got my 4 around the same time. You won't find a more perfect instrument...still has some dust from the shop on the knobs.

    $4200 FIRM
    shipped to your door, fedex ground. if you'd like faster shipping, you'll need to cover it.

    Beautiful. You definitely have my interest :D

    What does it weigh? Is that Kent Armstrong hand wound?

    weight i believe was about 6lbs. Not sure on the pickup, but I thought all Kent Armstrongs were hand wound?

    thanks. surprisingly i haven't gotten much action on this so I'll likely pull the sale since I'm not too motivated to sell anyway.

    Bump for a bass I would love to own, but don't have enough cash/musical assets to buy it.

    yeah, i'm not all that motivated to sell it. there's only one bass i've got my eye on and if it sells first, this is being pulled. i won't be heartbroken if i end up keeping it. i think the seller of the other bass will be looking to move his soon so it really will be a game of who sells first, if he does, this one is off the market. the time is now. like i said, i'm willing to work out a reasonable payment plan if you don't have all the cash now, but will in a realistic time frame.
