I'm selling basses to collect enough money to buy a brand new Karl Hoyt custom. So, unfortunately this beauty has to be sold. I had this body custom made by Warmoth. It is mahogany with a flame maple top dyed with their tigers-eye dye. The body style is the Warmoth hollow-J which is jazz bass body that has some of the wood removed from the interior. The overall result is a jazz bass that weighs less than the typical jazz of the same wood. The neck was custom built and fitted to this bass by luthier Karl Hoyt. It is a 5-piece neck. I don't remember the woods, but it is a great feeling neck. Karl even put a matching headstock on it. He did an amazing job of matching the dye. The bridge pickup is a Duncan MM pickup and the neck pickup is a Duncan J pickup. A coil tap switch is wired to the MM pickup to change coil configuration for different sounds. This bass is equipped with an East U-Retro preamp. These preamps sell new for over $300. Controls are volume, blend, treble, bass, mid, and mid frequency. The sweeping mid frequency knob is a unique aspect of the U-Retro preamp making it extremely versatile. The sound of this bass is incredible. The Duncan pickups have an aggresive sound while the wood is naturally warm. With the U-Retro preamp, you can dial-in a great number of different sounds from this bass. If I didn't have another Hoyt on the way, I wouldn't part with this one because it covers a wide range of styles. Case shown in the pictures is not included. I will ship in a gig bag. I'd like $700 shipped in the US. If you add up the cost of the parts on this one, that is a bargain. The U-Retro alone is worth over $200.
