This is a rare original Lodestone Primal Pro 5 String Bass
that was built by Ashdown in the UK
Contoured for comfort, yet making a definitive style statement, the Lodestone Primal Pro Bass combines traditional and modern materials to steer bass development into an exciting new era. Carefully selected tone woods are used in construction – Alder
for the body, Indian Rosewood
for the fingerboard and Hard Rock Maple
for the slim, narrow and smooth neck, which features a 2-way adjustable truss rod.
The contoured body design enables funk players unprecedented access beneath the strings for dramatic pulls, while the body cutaways combine with a sculpted neck joint to provide easy access to every fret.
Another important Lodestone breakthrough is the LaidBack headstock which angles the tuners backwards, making them much more accessible for comfortable, convenient tuning. This radical design also facilitates an optimized string path, further ensuring the integrity of the instrument. EMG Hyperactive Pickups
are used in a classic J configuration, and are amplified by Lodestone high-output, low noise active circuit, with controls provided for volume (x2), bass and treble.
A comfortable 34" scale
along with a lightweight carved body weighing only 9 pounds 12 ounces
make for a great playing experience. This one is finished in a flawless St. James Silver and it looks fantastic under stage lights!
The FretFX LEDs
are included along with a custom fit Loadstone gig bag.
There are absolutely no dings, dents or scratches of any kind on this bass. It's in perfect condition and it looks brand new. $699.00 shipped and insured in the CONUS More photos can be seen here: http://s256.photobucket.com/albums/h...mal%20Pro%205/
