I'm offering for sale a custom made bass, reminiscent of a banjo in appearance. Besides the handmade semi-hollow body, the bass features the following parts:

A Fender Jazz neck, circa 88-9, Made in Japan
Schaller bridge
Schaller tuners
Jazz pickup of unknown make

The are a few minor digs here and there. I'd be happy to provide close-ups of any section you may be interested in. There is a threaded brass insert sunk into the back of the headstock, to allow attachment of a strap pin with a machine screw, if desired. Also, there is a strap pin mounted through a hole in the neck plate.

It is currently strung with RS 88 LD strings. The previous owner (and maker) of this bass used nylon strings exclusively. There is no fret noticeable fret wear, as a consequence.

I'm new to leftybassist, but I've had a few transactions over at talkbass. My user name is the same over there (Understudy). Also, I can provide interested buyers with my eBay ID, so that you can see my excellent track record there.

I think $400 is a fair price, considering the neck and premium components, but this is an unusual piece, so it's hard to gauge what a reasonable price might be. I welcome offers and questions!

File comment: The oblong dot below the lower knob in the first picture is a bee that was flying nearby as I took the pictures. Perhaps it liked the honey finish on the body! ;)
