    I've decided to sell my custom shop, USA-made BC Rich Bernardo 5-string bass. It was completed March 5, 1999 and Bernie himself worked on this bass.

    Sounds amazing...even unplugged. The playability is incredible too. Included is a hardshell ATA-style case.

    *TRADED*

    Great condition overall. Note: the little hook on the bottom broke off at the glue seam and was reattached. PM me with any questions. Cheers!

    Specs are:
    Quilted Maple top
    Walnut body core
    Maple back
    7-piece Maple and Walnut neck
    Ebony fingerboard with Abalone block inlays
    Seymour Duncan Basslines pickups and Seymour Duncan 3-band 9V preamp
    Natural oil finish
    Bone nut
    Schaller straplocks
    34" scale

    Here's a pic of the repair. The small "hook" broke off at the seam and was glued back on.

    +1 on that! Sold my 5 String Innovator six months ago and regretted it the moment it left!

    Beautiful bass. Can't believe it's here at this price. Terrible economy- no wonder I can't get any action on my listing!
