This is a beautiful exotic James bass built by a guy in Seattle. This is bass #2 out of about a dozen that he has made.
I love this bass but I am looking to trade it for a custom 4 string bass that I like. The neck on this is a bit bulky for me. Think Warwick 5 string beefy
To give you an idea of value, I traded a near mint rickenbacker for it when they were worth $1000-$1100. It was so beautiful that I was hoping the neck would grow on me, but after 5 years it hasn't.
The shape is remniscent of a warwick and the contour body is reminiscent of a spector. It is a nice form fitting comfortable contour body.
Very nice selection of exotic woods. There are no functional issues and for all intents and purposes it appears mint.
Some of the woods, Mahogany body, maple pickup rings, beautiful cocobolo fretbboard, maple and lacewood neck, matching wooden back cover.
Some of the feautures: Contoured body for comfortable fit, shielding, Carvin pickups, beautiful wooden pickup rings, countersunk bridge, 5 string, abalone dots, slanted neck heel for access, beautifully laminated headstock, custom wooden truss cover, gotoh tuners.
I can do trades with cash going either way as long as its not too much.
