This was a prototype of the new Afterburner 3 pickup offering that is now being offered on all Afterburners for an extra chunk of cash. The four way rotary selector offers you 1) a solo’d P tone, 2) a solo’d J bridge tone, 3) a Z2 tone (bridge and middle pickup in series), and finally 4) a bridge/neck in parallel (PJ tone). Bass weighs somewhere in the 7.5lb range and is joy to strap on and play.

Since purchasing it I have also added a hipshot Detuner and I will include the original tuner with it as well.
The bass is phenomenal and in some ways better sounding than my Super PZ5, but alas I need the 5 string. While I added the detuner to help me make it usable in my band, I'm still running up against limitations in regards to my playing style. I will likely order a 5 string version of similar spec at some point, but for now I need to move this on. $1750 shipped.
Considered trades need to have a decent cash element. Dingwall ABZ, g&L or Musicman 5 strings or four string Hollowbody or fretless basses will also be considered. Considerations made for local cash deals.
