Hi all. Due to recent events, I am in desperate need of funds and have been forced to put this instrument up for sale. It's a fantastic piece of craftsmanship by Craig of Sonorus Tappers, and the only change I have made to it is that from an uncrossed 4ths tuning to the standard 10 string stick tuning of inverted bass 5ths and straight melody 4ths (EADGC<>EADGC). It is constructed of aircraft grade aluminium, and the pickups on it are absolutely top notch; responding perfectly to all my amps and effects.
I've had to select this one to sell on simply because my other instruments are in an unsellable state and I could not adapt my bassist fingers to playing the rails of the instrument. Tapping and fretting on a solid wood neck is far too ingrained for me, and I just didn't have the more attentive style of a stick player to adapt to it. Having picked up other such tapping instruments after the Sonorus, I found the rails to be a dream, but my playing style was not delicate enough.
I will include the free hardcase I got with the instrument, as well as the certificate of authenticity and 3 strap locks (as 3 strap lock pins are already present on the instrument, all you will need is a strap on which you can attach the locks) that are very handy for keeping the tapper safe and secure whilst playing. 
All that I ask is a total payment of £600 as the instrument was purchased for £650, and I will not ask extra for postage etc. I would prefer a payment of £250 through paypal or bank transfer after I package the instrument, but before I ship it, and then the remaining £350 once you have received it. If you have any other requests regarding this payment method, please let me know as this is the only way I have traded in instruments through paypal (having sold various basses through facebook).

*PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THIS INSTRUMENT IS EXACTLY AS I PURCHASED IT*

As of making this post, it will likely take me about a week to get the instrument from storage, order a cardboard postage box and organise a delivery service (UPS).

If you have any questions regarding this post, please let me know and I will be happy to answer.

P.S. free shipping is for UK only. Any shipping outside of the UK will require buyer's expense for 100% of shipping costs (not including packaging, which I will pay for myself).
