Hello all, up for sale is a recently acquired Traben Chaos Core 5. For those not familiar with Traben, the Chaos Core is their top of the line offering, it comes from the factory with massive Rockfield pickups with a 5 way selector switch to select different coils in each pickup, and an aguilar obp-3 preamp. This bass sounds HUGE, with an amazing range of tones.
I love traben basses, i currently have 3 and have had 7 at one time or another. The ONLY reason im selling is because i just cant do 5 strings. I try to love them, i just cant.
I promised myself this is the last shot at a 5, and it just isnt happening.
Now for details, this bass is in amazing shape, the only flaw i can find is a few small scratches by the input jack, other than that not a ding, dent or scratch anywhere. The previous owner stained the neck, and then coated it with a gloss enamel/polyurethane of some sort. I wasnt sure about this before i saw it in person, but it actually looks awesome, and the gloss finish feels very good to me. Of course you could always scotch-brite it if thats not your thing.
This bass is also currently running at 18v, not sure if that is from the factory or not, as every other model ive had was only 9v, but it certainly looks stock to me. Weight is right around 9.5 lbs. Will ship in like new padded fender gigbag.
I am looking to get what i paid, $425 obo shipped conus. I know trabens dont get a lot of love here, but seriously these things are amazing basses. Thanks for looking!
