But of course the big full story is the presence of the Jazz Bass Pickup.

This is what Fender has referred to in the past as a Precision Bass Special.

In fact I happen to own one of these Special Fender P Bass Special Configurations,

And I Think its a brilliant move to put in the extra sound that can greatly enhance the Regular Precision Bass Functions.

And create a unique instrument capable of dialing in a wide array of bass guitar tones.

Spurling 5 String Fretless Bass!

Spurling 5 String Fretless Bass

 

Spurling 5 String Fretless Bass! All Custom! Handmade! – $2500


Date: 2010-06-29,


. Here is just one of them.

This is a bass made by Sean Spurling, a luthier in San Francisco most known for his acoustic guitars. His work is really, truly stunning. This is the one, and this is the only. There is not another bass out there like this, period.

Here’s what I know about the bass (it was purchased for me as a gift by my parents after landing my first regular paid gig):

-Swamp ash and rosewood body. The finish on this bass is incredible. It’s a very light coat, that retains maximum “raw wood” feel, while ensuring the wood stays healthy for the long-term.
-Most everything on the bass is hand-carved, including the stacked bass/treb pot and the bridge. The other two knobs you see in the photos are replacements for the original knobs (which matched the preamp pot).
-Schaller tuners
-Through-body neck
-String through
-Locking input jack
-”Cheat” lines
-Bartolini NTBT preamp
-I believe the pickups are hand-built by Sean (though they may not be), but they most certainly have custom pickup covers (that match the bass to a T) and are active.
-All electronics are top notch.

The bass has been toured and traveled with. It’s got dings, but you really can’t see much of it given the finish of the bass. I’ve done my best to accentuate these flaws with the photographs, but it’s really hard to show them.

The bass was purchased new for $4500. Clearly it is not worth that much anymore. I am asking $2500, obo. It comes with the TKL case it was given to me in. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any offer
