Such a wonderful bass, nicknamed 'Mel, the Master of Melancholy'. 

Made for me 6 or more years ago by our own Dave Wilson, it has been a constant joy. It hangs in the living room, and is what I noodle on in front of the TV. 

Strung E-C with black nylons, and with a piezo bridge wired straight to the jack, it has a really strong, clear voice. Not the thin, trebly quack of a cheap piezo, but warm and clear. I cut the high mids a bit on the amp, but that's it. 

Mahogany body, maple/mahogany set neck, zebrano fingerboard, and a curly koa top that becomes mesmerising the closer you examine it. 

Really reluctant sale, as you can guess from the description, but ruthless common sense dictates a sale. 

Happy to post in bombproof packaging, but willing to meet up within reason.

I played an example that Dave had made for himself and it was fantastic.
