    Unique Features

    This Imperial 5 string combines a Walnut body and Alder tone block with an Ebony fingerboard and 5-piece Ash neck, providing it with a warm, yet punchy and articulate tone. With a low end that is deep and percussive, and highs that are smooth and bell-like, it was an absolute joy testing out this one.

    This bass also features a gorgeous Bolivian Rosewood non-solid top and Ebony neck-stringers, giving it looks to match it's killer sound!

    Bass is almost in mint condition with one minor mark on the back of the body, it measures 2mm and it's a light indentation in the finish, to small to photograph. Otherwise the bass is in 100% perfect condition, no other marks of scratches and has only been used in a smoke free environment. Never been gigged with and comes in original case with all paperwork and accessories.

    Will ship out from Australia through DHL Express to anywhere in the world, 3-5 business day transit time (unless customs hold it up), US buyers won't have to pay import duties (as it's made in the US) but other countries outside Australia and the US probably will.

    Price is firm, only possible trade i'd consider would be a Jerzy Drozd 33" Oracle with 17mm spacing. Preferably 6 string but would also consider a 5 string. I will give you a fair price on trade for the right bass. NO OTHER TRADES !!!!!

    Payment through PayPal, instant payment or eCheque is fine, no added fees.

    Going to give this one a bump, would also be interested in Alleva Coppolo J's, preferably 4 string but will look at 5's as well.

    No this is the 19mm Spacing, the old MG spec. Plays and sounds like a dream.
