Custom built by Todd Nichols (guitarist for Toad The Wet Sprocket and builder at Nichols Custom Guitars) for Dean Dinning (bassist at Toad The Wet Sprocket) for the 2018 Tour. I bought the bass from Todd at the end of the tour and he set it up to my specs. (We swapped the bent plate bridge for a Fender High Mass Top Load but I ended up preferring a Gotoh string thru which is currently on the bass) Its got a Mark Jenny aged finish and the usual nicks, dings and such from gigs and touring on the body - the neck is pristine. I’ve used it for both gigs and recording and it plays like a dream and sounds fantastic too. Top quality parts, hand built, excellent fit and finish - Todd is very particular and it's a top quality instrument that he hand signed and numbered. It will ship free and insured in the US48 and will be well packed in a quality Access gig bag. Specs as follows:

BODY: 54 P Bass with arm and body contours, string thru made by Wildwood Manufacturing in California

FINISH: Lake Placid Blue metallic from MJT (Mark Jenny) medium aged with checking etc (color has a lot of variation due to metallic paint)

NECK: All Parts TBRO, heel adjust, rosewood fretboard, finished in nitro lacquer amber tint, hand cut 1 5/8 bone nut, feels like a 50's U shape to me

TUNERS: Gotoh Res-O-Lite Tuners GBR-640 Reverse Gearing 1:28 Gear Ratio

BRIDGE: Gotoh BB-3575 Chrome Heavy String Through Bass Bridge

PICKUP: Lindy Fralin Split ’51 P Bass hum-free pickup

HARDWARE: Rock Rabbit Titanium Neck Plate and control plate. Dome top knurled knobs w/setscrew. Vintage style string retainer. Handmade wood thumb rest. Hand cut single ply pickguard

ELECTRONICS: Electrosocket/Switchcraft output jack, Emerson Pro 250k pots
