Black Alder Precision Body
Birdseye Maple Neck with Amazing Rosewood fretboard
1.5" at the nut, Tele cut headstock
21 Frets, MOP dots
Great "rolled" fretboard/frets feel
EMG P/J Pickup set (active pickups, 9V)
Passive VVT controls
Battery body in the back of the body
Schaller BML Tuners
Gotoh 201 Bridge
Roughly 9 pounds
A few dings on the back of the body (pictures below)
The area under the pickguard has been cored (honeycombed) to reduce weight and give the bass a better tone. (This work was done by Mr. Drake himself, so it was done professionally)
Some wear on the pickguard around the treble side near the pickups from years of pick playing.
I love this bass but I no longer play maple necked basses, so this is being sold to fund a new warmoth wenge neck for another bass of mine. I used this as a backup bass to my Drake Custom for about a year, it only saw the stage about 4 times. I baby my gear, so the dings you see are from when Andrew originally owned the bass, but since they're in the back, you can't really see them. The neck on this thing is amazing in my opinion: great birdseye figuring and an even better rosewood board (one of the few I've loved the look of, great color).
This will be sold with a cheap Musicians Friend bass case mostly for shipping safety.
shipped to the CONUS only.
