2017 Nelson Instruments Paramount bass for sale
Bobby builds these all by hand in Minnesota. This guy is built with the Ric scale length and Ric pickup placement, but it’s still very much its own animal.

Why am I selling this beast? Because I had Bobby build me a maple neck thru version. And I don’t hardly play this one anymore.
Here’s a fun, oddball beast of a bass: A mid-60s Italian-made Phantom IV in pink! If you look really carefully at the chips in the finish, you can tell it came from the factory in red. That said, it was already well-aged this way when I bought it in 1985. It also had the Fender-style pickup cover in place of the original Vox bridge cover then.
There are plenty of dings, as you can see, and the extra holes drilled under the makeshift bridge cover. The adjustment screws for the pickups are gone (were they ever there?) but the pickups are held steady in the pickguard. These typically warp pretty badly over time, but it’s not too severe on this one at all.
This bass is old and beat-up, but fully functional: Neck is true, action is even and totally playable, intonation pretty good too. It’s a chunkier neck, but I never found it more so than a P-bass neck (and I don’t typically like those because they’re too thick for my taste!).

Spurling 5 String Fretless Bass! All Custom! Handmade! – $2500
. 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).
-Locking input jack
-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
