    This bass.... I don't really want to give it up, but I am eliminating debt saving for a house.

    This is an exceptional 5 string, Amazing tone, play-ability, and craftsmanship. Kept in excellent condition for a 22 year old bass. I am pretty particular about my action and the action on this goes very low.

    Mahogany inner body
    Exhibition grade AAA Quilted maple top/back
    5 piece maple/walnut neck w/ Morado fretboard
    18mm string spacing
    9 lbs
    Heavy duty brass hardware
    Original strap w/strap locks (very comfortable/adjustable)
    Original Case

    Currently strung up E-C
    Near Toronto Canada.
    $3000

    Well man it's early in the AM and with all and utmost respect but:

    I COUNT 7 PIECES IN THAT NECK. NOT 5.

    I AGREE WITH THE PRESENT OWNER THAT IT IS A 7 PCE NECK..

    A REAL BEAUTY OF A BASS. :cool::cool:

    Curious if the original brass scalloped nut was changed out for the E-C tuning, likely not eh ?

    It's most definitely a 5 piece neck.

    Again, no question here, this IS a 5 piece neck, go ahead and call Ken Smith to confirm!

    I'm drooling. I'm going to sell my 78 Fender Jazz and get it if it still around. Not unless you want to trade + cash to you. I like all 8 piece of wood or is it 12? Nevertheless, Great bass.
