Hi everyone, I’m selling this beautiful custom made 6-string semi hollow body bass. It is a brand new, one of a kind bass. No sign of wear! The body and neck were made in China to my specs, and the bass was completed by a local luthier. The setup has been done by the same luthier.

Unfortunately, I’m selling that bass because this is not the sound I’m looking for. So, here’s your chance to get something very unique!

Value of $1600. Asking $1000. Shipping to USA is 120$

Construction: 6 Bolt-on
Body: Chinese Mahogany (very lightweight), semi hollow body with sound holes
Top Material: Flamed Maple
Top Contour: Carved top
Neck Material: Maple
Fretboard Material: Rosewood
Inlays: Pearloid Blocks
Binding: Body only, front and back
Scale: 34”
Frets: 24
Neck Shape: Very Fat ‘C’
Bridge Pickup: EMG 45X DC
Neck Pickup: EMG 45X J

Here are the details concerning the total cost:

• EMG 45X DC, EMG 45X J and EMG BQS system => $430
• 6 x chrome Gotoh tuners => $85
• Hipshot Type-A (18mm string spacing) => $150
• Bass body and neck (carved top, flame maple top, binding on top and back of the body, semi hollow body, sound holes, blocks inlays, custom made…) => $400
• Luthier’s labor: $575
• Gig bag: $75

Total: $1715

I was asking $1000, price drop to $850. Lower than $850, I'll keep the bass (Sorry but I'm loosing too much money otherwise).

Thank you!

That's a great looking bass Wingspan... Not in the market to buy another bass, but if I was, I would consider this bass. My big reservation though, would be the 18mm spacing at the bridge, as my hands/fingers are just not large-and-long enough to handle that gap. I currently play an Ibanez 206, which I believe is 16-17mm... it also has a nice flat neck profile that allows me to comfortably wrap my hand around ta access the strings...

Good luck on your sale! :)

Hi fivebass52! Actually, the 18mm string spacing was my request. Most of the 6 string basses on the market comes with a string spacing between 16mm - 16.5mm. And below 16.5mm, it's too tight for my hands and my fingers.

I'm also open to trades ! If you have a 6 string bass, and you're also looking for a trade, please let me know. I'm thinking about a Warwick Corvette 6 string bass right now, but it can be something else too.

Did you decide to hang on to it, or found a buyer?
