    Oh man, I'd love to pick that honey up. "Anyone got 4K I can borrow?" Something tells me this one isn't going to be here long.

    Does this one use a battery for the preamp or does it use the external power supply?

    It doesn't look like it has the 5 pin for the power supply if it was a 34 inch scale id of been all over it

    Don't see the 5-pin connector, so expect an 18V (2 9-volts) circuit.

    FWIW - even if it had the 5-pin for external power, it would still be operable with 2 9-volts.

    I hate to see this just sit, so I'll lower the price. Perhaps someone will bite? I paid significantly more for this bass than what I am asking. This is a steal of a deal for sure. Take it off my hands before I come to my senses. I'd much rather see my Talkbass brethren be the proud owner of this beauty than list this on Ebay. Now $3825 shipped Lower 48.
