    This is a re-post of my Peavey Sarzo...and now adding my ABC Stingray 5!

    First, the Sarzo!

    Specs:
    34" Scale
    24 Frets
    1-9/16" Brass Nut
    2 Peavey "Wide-Aperature Ceramics" Humbuckers
    Ash body w/ neck-thru construction
    5-piece maple neck w/ Purpleheart stringers
    Ebony Fretboard w/ Pearl "Cat-eye" inlays
    3-band active preamp w/ Passive/active switch
    Gold Schaller Roller Bridge

    This thing sounds like a beast and can create a wide variety of tones. It also plays very well with a straight neck, low action, and a newer set of D'Addario ProSteels (EPS165).

    I call it an 8.5 because there are a couple of dings and chips and it does not have the original knobs for the preamp. All of these are in the pictures. Also, the past owner installed a "custom" battery cover. Overall though, no fret wear and it looks fabulous. The red gloss finish is just breathtaking.

    SOLD!!!

    Now, the ABC Stingray 5

    Specs:
    34" Scale
    Maple neck w/ Maple Fretboard
    22 frets
    Nordstrand 5.2 Humbucker
    SGD Vintage Stingray Preamp
    Hipshot Tuners
    Set-in StrapLok pegs

    This thing is awesome! It began it's life as an OLP MM3, but then user Syco_Bass made it into one of his custom ABC basses. He gave the neck his usual treatment which makes it the best neck I have ever played. He levelled, crowned, and polished the frets along with rounding the fretboard edges. The back has a poly-oil satin finish and is FAST! Along with the electronics and hardware, this thing is amazing. 9/10 condition just for some scuff marks.

    PRICE=[DEL]$500 $450[/DEL] $400 Shipped

    Good Day.. I am not trying to be a jerk but please explain why you are selling the Peavey,,saying you need a 5 string when you do have a 5 string for sale. BTW those 2 basses are beautiful.

    Sorry for the confusion, that was the original posting for the Sarzo. Really need to proofread next time.

    The ABC is going now because I just got another five string that works better for what I'm playing and I really need the money. It is by no way a knock on the bass. It is a fantastic bass that really reproduces that vintage Stingray sound.

    Bump for the ABC, I had a 5-string Schecter P by Rob, he really does great work on those custom jobs. Whoever picks up that OLP will not be disappointed!

    Thanks for all the love!

    As for questions: sorry cash only and the Sarzo feels about 9.5 lbs., but I will do an official weigh-in.

    16.5 mm at the bridge. So this thing plays lightning fast, but you are still able to slap it if you need.
