Up for sale is my recently acquired Ritter Roya. Wonderful craftmanship, playability, tonally, this bass has it! THE ONLY reason I am selling is I have reached the conclusion I am a Dingwall man for the remainder of my playing career, however long that may be, so no trades please. The condition is 9.6 out of 10, no dents scratches, hardware discoloration, anything of that nature. There is a small crack in the surface finish between the neck pickup and the neck pocket, I've seen this on other Ritters, so it's not uncommon and has no affect on playability or mechanics of the bass. There is slight wear on the fretboard where the color is lighter due to someone playing with a wedding band, but almost unnoticeable. The following is the information from Jens himself: This Instrument is an exclusively hand-crafted unique product. 10.01.2007 Deidesheim / Germany Luthier Jens Ritter Instrument - Identification - Number: 0645 Shape Roya Number of Strings 5 Fretted Neck-Color "Flieder" Body-Color "Flieder" Hardwarecolor Gold Body-Wood Mahogany Body-Top Flamed Maple Body-Finish Transparent High Gloss Neck-Wood Flamed Maple Construction Bold on 3-Piece Neck-Finish Transparent High Gloss Fingerboard Flamed Maple Scale 35" (889mm) Elektronics RITTER MASTER Parametric Pickup Neckposition RITTER Slimbucker Pickup Bridgeposition RITTER Slimbucker Bridge / String Attachment Ritter 3D / B1String Attachment Tuners RITTER BT - Custommade by Gotoh Nut Bone Strap Buttons Schaller Security Locks Weight 3,9kg ( 8,58 lbs) Fretted The only modifications I have made are replacing the Schaller strap buttons with Dunlops. I have a Ritter Strap and two sets of Ritter Black Knight strings for it, as well as the light hard case for it. Currently strung with Neon Pink DR's but those will soon come off in favor of the black Ritter strings. Asking price is $4,250.00 shipped anywhere in the CONUS. Paypal preferred. Will consider overseas shipping, but contact me first as buyer will assume all overseas shipping charges and taxes. On with the pictures!

You throwing in the pink strings? I got to play a couple Ritters, and they are very cool, certainly a work of art from a very talented builder. What flavor of Dingwall has you gassing bad enough to part with the Ritter? Best of luck with the sale.

I am as big a Dingwall nut as anybody, and I have sold many basses to fund my passion, but your Ritter appears to be a very special bass. It's stunning. I don't know your circumstances, but I would keep it if at all possible....unless you are funding a very special Dingwall. Mark

I want to keep it badly, and if circumstances permit I will keep her...I just want to own a Prima Artist before my time is up, if I can figure out a way to have both I will! :twisted:

This one is traded, she's on her way to a new home! I'll be posting pics soon of what I finally let her go for, (hint, they will be Dingwall related) :D
