    Chris Benevente bass in brand-new condition, incredible instrument. I'm selling these because I am principally a guitar player and simply do not have enough time seriously play bass.

    NO TRADES!

    This fretted SC5 is fabricated with premium select spalted maple inlays, front and rear faceplates, a walnut core and wenge fingerboard. The fingerboard is bound w/ wenge. The four pickup-four volume control system is fantastic and state-of-the-art. The selection and interrelationship of the pickups are selected with the volume controls. This allows for a huge variety of tonality and fine tuning. It also has many of which are not possible with conventional pickup systems. Treble and bass controls are added for further refinements. It comes with a high-quality structural foam gig bag. Asking $2,950 plus shipping, PayPal is accepted. Call me at 330-494-3302 or email m_gatien@yahoo.com, Mike.

    the nut is 1 3/4". String scale is 17" nut to 12th fret so is a 34" scale. 3" is correct for the bridge string spacing.

    My son says the scale is accurate (he measures for bodybuilding). It does not feel heavy to me & I play guitars.

    Note, pro level lineup just completd by a Martin Auth. Repairman.

    The gig bag is a Pro Tech
