For sale: Clement Jon Fretless 6-string #523 (B-stock)

This Clement Jon 6-string fretless is now ready for shipping! List price is $3075, selling as a B-stock at $2650.

This is my “Tundra” recipe, with a swamp ash body, a five piece maple and bloodwood neck, and a bloodwood fingerboard with Luminlay position markers that will glow in the dark. The bass features a rather tight but comfortable string-to-string width at the bridge of 16.5mm! It features Nordstrand pickups, with a custom made hybrid soapbar/P neck pickup made exclusively for this bass! Very rare! The bridge pickup is a Nordstrand Big Split. The bass also features a 9 Volt Bartolini three-band preamp under the hood. Bridge, tuners and knobs are Hipshot.

This beautiful and awesome sounding 6-string fretless is for sale at a discount as a B-stock instrument due to some minor cosmetic imperfections. Most notably, the bridge is slightly off centre. However, in spite of this, the bass sounds and plays great with low string action!  Will ship in a Protec gig bag for an additional $150.

The Clement Jon #523 Fretless 6-string features a one-piece swamp ash body, with PJ pickups from Nordstrand and a Bartolini preamp. Bridge and knobs from Hipshot. The fingerboard is bloodwood.

The matched control cavity cover hides a 9-Volt Bartolini three-band preamp, with a battery compartment easily available for convenience.

The Clement Jon bass has great balance and easy access to the first positions. The bloodwood fingerboard and five-piece neck makes for an extremely stable neck with little movement.

The main wood of the five piece neck is maple, with bloodwood stringers for stability. The tuners are Hipshot Ultralights.

The headstock features a Hipshot string tree in addition to the Hipshot Ultralight tuners. There is no neck dive on this bass!

Slightly angeled Hipshot Ultralight tuners for simplified access.

The bass features a Nordstrand Big Split pickup at the bridge, and a custom made soapbar/P pickup at the neck. The most notable imperfection of this B-stock instrument is that the bridge is sligthly off centre. The string spacing at the bridge is 16.5 mm.
