    Custom ordered by me about 5-6 years ago. 9.9/10 condition with couple of tiny paint chips on the headstock (see pic). 34", 19mm. She's is completely hollow from bridge to nut, with soundholes, and is almost as loud as an average ABG unplugged, but only about an inch thick. Board is glass flat. Almost no fretwear. Passive, stacked humbucker J pups, stacked vol/tone, 4 position pup selector (bridge solo, neck solo, 2 in series, 2 in parallel). There's room in the control cavity for a pre but she doesn't need one IMHO. Balances perfectly seated or on a strap. The headstock has faux tuners that clamp the strings; you can use any standard strings. Tuners at the bridge make her balance so sweetly. Schaller straplocks. It has a factory installed, recessed Dunlop straplock receiver hole in the lower body edge for my bass belt (affects nothing, see pic).

    Handmade of composite in Germany and finished in "Nissan sunlit copper metallic". The black is paint; there's no true pickguard. Beautiful matched gigbag.

    About 4K new and many moons of waiting.

    Acoustic clips on the Basslab site (link above). Funky link to youtube clip

    This one available for 2500 firm. Paypal.

    I forgot to mention that it does have a truss rod. Action is set nice and low and can go as low as you like. The neck never moves, regardless of temp and humidity.

    Crappy camera but you get the idea. Any flaws you see are dust/reflections......

    I've never gone from "Never heard of it" to "Really want it" as fast as when reading this thread. Beauty!

    I am very surprised to see this up for sale. I've played it folks and it's a good one! This bass is the ideal solution for anyone with back or shoulder problems. You won't feel a thing.

    This for sale ad will remain on topic free of trolling. All the best with the sale. A totally hollow J bass is super cool :cool:
