    Tangerine dream. Sounds like a 'Ray, 34" scale, 18mm spacing at the bridge. No flaws I can find.

    Check the orig FS thread and links for great pics

    Yeah-and it has the growl to match the finish. Thanks for the offer but the Pavel isn't my thing and unless a trade is generating cash I'd rather keep this axe.

    Why is this still here. If you were to order this direct from me, it would cost over $1000 more than what Lomo's asking.

    Nino,

    If I weren't totally broke, I would have bought this bass the day that Lomo listed it!

    Thinking this one over....
    I see the string spacing is 18mm.
    Whats the nut width?
    Guessing the controls are volume, treble and bass ?
    Pickup is Nordie? SD? MM?
    Fretboard is....rosewood? Morado? ? ?

    Nice work Nino, love the color.

    Nut width=1.75"
    Yes: vol, treble, bass
    Nordie 'bucker
    Looks like rosewood to me.

    According to Nino, preamp and pickup are both Nordstrand MM models, and fretboard is Pao Fero (a/k/a Morado).

    Thanks for the clarification. She's got a gritty, gargantuan, greasy,groovin', growl.

    Still here. How I wish this bass had 19mm bridge spacing. She's perfect for me in every other way. I think the nut width and neck would not allow a bridge swap to make her 19mm, else I'd transform her.

    19mm is possible but not recommended. I offer different neck heel widths for 18mm and 19mm. If I installed a 19mm bridge on that bass, there is a possibility that the strings will slip off the edge of the fretboard. The nut is not a problem. I've built 1-3/4" nuts with 19mm bridges with no problem, as long as the neck heel is wide enough.

    Crazy sounding but can you build a 35" scale neck for this bass?

    Probably best to pm Nino on that. I certainly don't know the answer.
