A well-deserved BUMP
for a fantastic bass for the money and an ever better Owner & Seller. I was seriously in the market for this as a the foundation of my concept for an "EFX Bass" with both a Kahler Bass Tremolo as well as a Sustainiac Bass Sustainer/Driver (for crazy lead sounds with effects on, and the somewhat "grind" or light Overdrive that our hear from a bowed upright with no effects or mild distortion)
as it would have fit the spacing I was looking for in the add-ons above... except for the Kahler, which turns out wouldn't fit in the space between the rearward MM-style humbucker and the end of the body. Before I was able to lock that info down, aproud1
sent me custom pics with a ruler on the pickups and bridge so that I could find that information out. Nothing but a Class Act all the way, willing to take the time to do so and give me the time to take the pics to some Kahler Experts I know that helped me to (sadly)
determine that this Bass wouldn't work for me.
Still, if I didn't already have a set of "SUB Sterling" & "SUB 5" for the Music Man tone in my "toolbox" (it's not "My Sound", but a nice and useful one to have)
I'd be jumping on this steal anyway: Bassculture Custom Pickups in Ebony Shells, Very Quality Aftermarket Preamp (I have and love the NTBT/NTMB Bartolinis in my Mike Lull M4 & M5
, Hipshot Ultralite Tuners, and Sadowsky-esque aluminum knobs.
This is a fantastic
, upgraded bass that if I weren't looking for an extremely
specific "platform", I would have snatched up in a second. And I can't say enough about aproud1
and his professionalism as a Seller!
