    For sale (no trades please) is a beautiful 2015 Custom Shop bolt on Thumb 5. I bought this bass about 3 years ago unused from a collector who purchased it new and didn't play it. No story here - this is extremely difficult to list as it's a special instrument but I just purchased my dream bass (a custom Dingwall Z3) and I made promises that I would clear out the rest of my 5 strings.

    It's in excellent shape and has been babied by me (only taken out to play at church). I just oiled it again (some before and after pictures) and it's set up with a low action and new DR Pure Blues strings. I was just trying them out and they sound great but the tension is lower so the B is a little loose. I do setups and am happy to adjust prior to shipping if you don't do them and will even set up with your strings if you want to send them prior to me shipping.

    Bubinga body and wenge neck and board. The neck is on the thinner side and fast. It's without a doubt the best neck I've ever played. Fyi if you're looking for the baseball bat huge necks of old this is not it. It comes with all the case candy and the bomb proof flight case. I don't have the exact weight but like all good thumbs it's not a featherweight. I'd guess around 10.5 but if it's a major issue I can probably take it to work to use a scale.

    I'm asking $2,100 firm and we split actual shipping (this case is heavy!). These custom shop thumbs are $4k new so this is a great opportunity to get a really clean one. Let me know if you have any questions!
