Fender CB100-CE No. 1

I bought this bass brand new because of its advertised nut width of 2 1/8 inches. Even though it is advertised as being that wide every place I found on the web, the nut width is actually only 1 11/16 inches – the same as most of my other guitars. However, if I had not fallen for this bit of false advertising I probably never would have bought the bass and that would have been my loss. This bass converted into one of my very best sounding and easiest playing 34 inch guitars. The satin neck is very easy to play and the acoustic sound is up there with my very best Alvarez, Breedlove, Hohner, and Michael Kelly guitars. The mother of pearl rosette and pick guard give it an elegant look and the Fishman electronics are outstanding. I will make more of these if I can get the bass as this price and if there is a market for them. I am selling this guitar on eBay for $549 without a case. As of this writing I do have a used hard case in good condition available for an additional $75. Sold - Thanks Chris!
