4-String Lobe Model in Curly Maple - Sweet!
Well, people, as much as I hate to, I have to make room within my collection, so I am offering my very nice maple Lobe 4-string for sale. If you haven't heard the story about Steve Wishnevsky's work, I suggest you go to TalkBass.com and look up Wishless Club and catch the fever (or not). Love 'em or hate 'em, they are very, very unique and in a class of their own - kinda' like folk art as musical instruments. Personally, I can't get enough of them but I have ended up with too many 4-stringers and need to make room for a 5-string or two. This one is quite nice right out of the box and is eminently playable, has good balance and that classic Wishbass woody tone. Body wood is a nice curly maple, back is mahogany, fingerboard is bubinga and the neck stringers are purpleheart, maple and mahogany. Tuners are chrome Grovers and the bass has the standard volume control only, and no truss rod. The only thing I added to this guitar is a hand-made finger rest in maple crafted by Guy Lewis in England. This is bass # 899 and Wish keeps telling us that he will cease production when he reaches #1000. I am anticipating a mild panic to set in at that point!
Bass was purchased new by me in April of this year and will be shipped just as Wish does with the exception of good blanket of bubblewrap. I ship via FedEx and prefer PayPal. Otherwise, I will accept a personal check but will not ship until after that check has cleared my bank
