    Unique Features

    This striking Monarch 4 Deluxe was built for one of our dealers and features an Alder body, Pink Ivory fingerboard, and Ebony top. This bass has a balanced and articulate tone, with the warmth of the Alder counteracted by the brightening effects of the PInk Ivory and Ebony. The result is a fat, yet aggressive low end, and clear, percussive highs.

    In addition to the beautifully dark Ebony top, this bass also features Pink Ivory pickup covers, and a very rare Bastagone Walnut back wood. Rest assured, this bass is likely to turn a few heads when it's pulled out on a gig, and then turn a few more once it's plugged in and people hear the killer sound!

    Bass is 100% Perfect Condition, not a single mark or scratch on it. Has not been gigged with and has only been used in a smoke free studio. Comes in original case with all paperwork and accessories.

    Will ship out from Australia through DHL Express to anywhere in the world, 3-5 business day transit time (unless customs hold it up), US buyers won't have to pay import duties (as it's made in the US) but other countries outside Australia and the US probably will.

    Price is firm, only possible trade i'd consider would be a 33" Oracle with 17mm spacing. Preferably 6 string but would also consider a 5 string. I will give you a fair price on trade for the right bass. NO OTHER TRADES !!!!!


    Spot the little butterfly in the figured walnut back :smug:

    I don't have an accurate scale (analogue so hard to read exactly). It's saying just over 4.5kg's, probably 4.6 - 4.7kg's. It feels very solid, sounds fantastic.
