It is a somber moment today, as I am prepared to sell the same Z3 that I sold everything to get. Frankly, I do not play bass enough these days to justify owning a $4K+ instrument. At this point it hangs in my room, easily the most beautiful piece of art that I own, and has gone untouched for weeks. The last time I picked it up I vowed to never sell it, so I have decided to only touch it again to put it in a FedEx box. Specs: Color: Stormy Monday Blue (matching HS) Top: Spalted Maple (matching HS) Neck: Walnut (best neck I have ever felt) board: Ziracote w/Sapwood, Dingwall "speedometer" inlays Preamp: Glockenklang Misc: Original HSC and tools There is one flaw - a 4mm ding on the body edge at the input jack. Pics are in my MobileMe gallery - [url:ql2ardsx]http://gallery.me.com/nate.cook#100033[/url:ql2ardsx] I'm looking to get exactly what I paid for it - $3700 shipped.

Oh man, this is the one I was looking at before I bought my Z3! Hate you have to sell it, but someone is going to get a great bass at a great price!

My heart weeps, such a gorgeous bass. At that level every bass is its own individual masterpiece and there won't be two of the same ever again.

I've played that bass (when it was with the previous owner) and it really is a good one! Good luck with the sale.

To all interested (there were a lot) this is now on its way. It was a handshake deal that was pretty much done an hour after the listing. If I was slow responding to emails/PMs in the aftermath, it's because I have been in the middle of a messed up moving situation. She is a beautiful, amazing bass. I highly recommend that all of you aspire to play and own a Z or Prima someday. If I was still playing, I would have sold my car before selling my Z3. :cry: Congratulations to Frank on completing his Z family! :D

5-String. Perfect condition - no scratches, dents, knicks... $4,495.00. (Revised) Or best offer... Ah, I tried to bring out some detail but with the file size not so good. I can send better pics if you're interested. Actually, This is the bass in the Z3 Gallery on this site so you can get a better picture there. Flame top, Glock 3-band eq, Hipshot Drop-B.

Now that's what I'm talking about! This won't be here long, wish I needed it instead of just wanting it. Love the (ziracote?) fretboard with the sap grain, very classy!

Bump for a cool guy and an extremely cool bass! Wish I had the scratch right now to take it off your hands, the Z3 IMO is the ultimate expression of Sheldon's craft, a tool with unlimited uses. I can't believe it's still here, somebody buy this before I really get in trouble with the wife and dip into the emergency fund!!!! :idea:

And she is now mine, she's sitting here at my desk telling me to finish up and get my ass home. the pictures above and Sheldon's glamour shots do not do her justice at all.
