    I am offering this to forum members before I list it on Reverb. I hate to sell this bass, but as you all know, reality is a harsh mistress. These are exceptionally rare. According to Florence Wilfer, only 3 or 4 were ever made. This one is in very nice shape with only some surface scratches here and there. Most of those are only noticeable when viewed at a certain angle, as the bass is very shiny! It comes with the COA, tool kit, and flight case. The flight case shows some wear, but is in pretty good condition and is structurally sound. I would prefer not to ship this internationally, but will do so at the buyer's risk, with full value insured. I have never seen another one of these for sale, which makes it difficult to price accurately. With that said, due to it's rarity, and ultra coolness, I am asking for $4500.00USD or best offer. Now for the eye candy:
