    The black one.


    I’m only moving this because I have 2 SB5000s that sound almost identical and I do not need a clone backup at this time. My gigging needs have just changed a bit.


    Low-wide frets
    Ash body
    Gloss finish neck
    Cream pickups
    Tort Guard
    Black painted headstock
    Schaller strap buttons.
    Standard SB5000 electronics package

    Hardshell case

    To save time, please no trades, overseas transactions or zero feedback.
    Thanks in advance, priced to move and is firm.


    800 shipped to the lower 48.
    Cheers :)

    19mm spacing or 17.5? I think its 19mm but I wanted to just hope its 17.5mm!

    If you're selling any 17.5mm 5ers in the Boston area hit me up with that too

    I've assumed that fingerboard wood would make significant difference in tone. The ebony and the maple are quite similar?

    I've been shopping for a used one with a maple board, but am open minded.

    That are very similar in that upper end register, there is something that about that ebony foundation that I just love. I find it more soild on ebony then maple...But I love both.

    Yeah, talked to Basswave on the phone tonight, it's cool, we're only about an hour away from each other.

    And yes, he is probably one of the nicest guys you'll ever talk to from what I could tell.

    He's going out of his way for me to get this done on Wednesday night.

    Soooo excited to get the new bass!

    Met Basswave tonight. Awesome guy, great to deal with, bass was flawless as described, plus he's a guy you could talk to for hours and have a great time.

    He gave me an excellent deal on a bass that's much nicer than my ability warrants.

    Thanks, Basswave!
