    Hi,

    I am offering for sale, my favorite bass, a beautiful Custom P/J made by my dear friend Pat Wilkins. Pat will be making me a new Medium scale bass because of some joint issues that I'm having in my left hand. I really hate to let this one go! It's the nicest bass I've ever owned and it is in Immaculate condition and has been pretty much a "safe queen" rarely played. Pat's work is legendary and this bass is one of his finest builds, it sounds, looks W-PJ-Pic-1. W-PJ-Pic-4. Wilkins Sunburst Bridge 2 Sml. Wilkins Sunburst Headstock 2 Sml. W-PJ-Pick-Case-1. W-PJ-Pic-1. W-PJ-Pic-4. Wilkins Sunburst Bridge 2 Sml. Wilkins Sunburst Headstock 2 Sml. and feels amazing! Note: I do wish to keep the sale Local, I'm in the Los Angeles area.

    Here are the specs:

    Body: Chambered Honduras Mahogany with a Big Leaf Maple top.
    Finish: '59 Burst.
    Neck: "C" shaped Maple with a Birdseye Maple Headstock cap.
    Fretboard: African Ebony with vintage frets. 1.5" at the nut and 7.25" classic radius.
    Pickups: Lindy Fralin "P" with (+5) Split "J". Controls VVT.
    Hardware: Hipshot type "A" Bridge and Ultralite tuners.

    This bass comes with a Levy's Leather trimmed Gig Bag in "As new" condition.

    You can contact Me or Pat for more information.

    Thank you for looking!

    I've always liked this one, I remember when you posted some photos of it a few year back I guess when you first got it maybe.

    I bought a Wilkins bass last August. It is an incredibly instrument. This bass is beautiful. Can’t go wrong with a Wilkins bass. GLWTS

    Happy Wilkins owner here - yours is a beauty!

    Whats the weight of that chambered bod bass?

    What's the tone of that wood combo?

    Hi, Thank you...I believe it's around 8.5 to 8.75 lbs. but it doesn't feel heavy due to the chambering.
    The tone is deep with smooth clean highs...What I would describe as very musical, IMHO it fits well
    into all types of music. It has amazingly good tone! Also, the playability is exceptional.
