Hey y'all. I'm considering trading my Corvette Taranis 5 (2006) for a Thumb Bolt-on 5. Would be willing to possibly add cash on my end.
Not a lot of people know about the Taranis model as it was a limited production design. The 4 string version was meant to be tuned BEAD and used for "heavier" styles of music.
What I have is the 5 string model, lightweight(!) 2 piece swamp ash body with a nirvana black sandblasted finish. Essentially the body has a very rich textured look to it. COMPLETELY Passive J/MM setup. Monstrous and loud bass with a huge lowend and very thick mid-range. Cuts through the mix like a beast.
Cosmetically it is a 8.5/10. Straight neck, low action and recently set up before a European tour I brought it out on. Neck is still straight and plays awesome! I used this bass mainly with a touring Blues (modern R&B) artist and the stingray style tone on the back pickup is incredible. The only mod I made to it was add chrome German Warwick Hardware, ( I felt it complimented the organic look more and made it less "stealth").
I will have a link to detailed pictures up tomorrow if there is any interest, gotta get ready for a gig. I'm looking for a comparable "used" later year bolt-on thumb 5-string. '90s models are actually preferred because I love wenge necks. I can be flexible on physical/aesthetic points but it has to work and play! EDIT: Also interested in Streamer 5 strings....bolt-on, jazzmans, Mastermans etc...
Also added updated trade interests, see bottom post. Thanks!
Cheers and feel free to ask any questions-Included is a link to the model on Warwicks site. http://www.warwick.de/modules/produk...ID=22019&cl=EN
