This is a FIRST QUALITY instrument; I've only put it in the "Clearance" category to highlight the fact that there is a limited number of these basses available. All specifications, operation, accessories, and warranties otherwise apply.
This is a very special limited edition WAV4 bass; while the current basses have composite fingerboards, a short run of them was done with strikingly beautiful brown rosewood boards. A representative photo of the bass is to the right, as well as below.
For a full description of the WAV4 bass specifics, click the WAV4 link in the related items, below.
We are NOT charging a premium for the rosewood model! Same price as the standard bass.
We have only a limited number of these basses available - once they're gone, they're gone. These basses are first-come, first-served - so don't wait long, or you might miss out.
Important: Because these basses have rosewood fingerboards, they are available for purchase WITHIN THE USA ONLY.
A page with comments from Mark, such as what to expect and how to get the best results from it, is included with each bass.
