For sale is my Manne Malibu, custom made for display at the 2010 Musik Messe. I am the original owner. The bass weighs ca. 3.5kg and is in excellent condition. The only thing worthy of mention is wear from slapping where the pickguard would normally be located. Condition is probably 9 out of 10.

It is truly a one-of-a-kind instrument. The body is black korina, which was lit on fire and finished with what the luthier calls a 'dirty finish'. It has cool 3D-like effects that can't be properly captured by my camera.

It is passive, and offers an extremely flexible sound palette. Each pickup is splittable to Serial, Parallel and Single-coil. It has an extremely thin phelonic fingerboard that sounds more like maple than graphite. The neck is maple with ash laminates and it has a two way truss rod. It comes with a heavy-duty gigbag (also in excellent condition).

I'm selling it for 1100 € to fund another project. The price is non-negotiable, and sale is preferred. Buyer pays actual (insured) shipping costs. I have a carton and packing materials. The bass is located near Stuttgart, if local pickup is preferred.

Here are the specifications from the manufacturer:

The bass is still available! I've reduced the price to 1000€. The purchase price was 1860€, so I'm not going any lower on this. Straight sale is preferred, but I might consider a trade. The bass is located near Stuttgart.

Here are some trade guidelines:

No fretless
No P - Basses
4-string fretted only
No Asian basses (Skyline, Fender Japan, etc)
Active or Active/Passive electronics
