Here we have the RARE Reflex HH5... and here is the ONLY BFR Roasted neck Reflex HH5! Its a beauty! As close to a stealth as you're going to get! 2 indents, one in the back & another small one in the gloss by the knobs, only visible at certain angles, same with basic surface scratches but otherwise perfect. Has those cool little gold flakes in the finish. The Ebony fretboard & roasted neck are expensive upgrades but really add top notch class.
These have a Mahogany tone block which is designed to add more low end & punch vs the regular clanky stingrays & sterlings & boy is that true. Ash body I believe with a maple top. Its more vintage, warmer than any EBMM I've owned (and thats a lot). Thats really evident in the upper registers where the tone is still full & punchy vs thin & grindy. The weight is 10 lbs 4 ounces with strap. I like to quote the highest reading I got just to be sure & fair. Mahogany tone blocks, Roasted Necks & Ebony boards are for tone man so yeah it adds a bit a weight but its worth it. The passive tone is P bass vs passive J bass Here are the video clips that show what this bass does, get some popcorn it does a lot !!
Reflex HH5 EXTENSIVE REVIEW with Ed Friedland Reflex HH5 Review by Keko, the man!
Comes with Dean Markely Helix Stainless Steels.
Its the normal 34" scale, 17.5mm spacing that all EBMM 5ers have $1795 SHIPPED.... limited edition roasted neck Reflex HH5s are $2500 new IF you could buy them. Even the "regular" editions push $2200 and are very rarely in stock as a 5HH. TRADES: ONLY a Sterling HS5 maple neck
. I could use a one trick pony super aggressive bass.
ONLY selling because I dont prefer black & the tone overlaps a bit with my Bongo, the Sterling 5HS wont. Until I get the Sterling that fits, I'll be enjoying this. Its too good to give away & I have no backup. If it sucked maybe Id firesale it for a huge loss.
BTW, this Reflex HH5 has all original parts no replacements. EXTENSIVE CLOSE UP PICS HERE !!
