    Hello TalkBass!

    Up for sale is a gorgeous 2014 NAMM Prat Classic 6 Jazz Bass. Per Mr. Prat, the specs are as follow:

    - 6 string BEADGC
    - 34" scale
    - 18 mm string spacing
    - Wenge fingerboard
    - Curly maple neck
    - Mahogany body
    - Brazilian cherry burl (only available for 1 more bass)
    - Top matching headstock
    - Ebony knobs
    - Nordstrand pickups
    - Noll 4 band preamp (volume/tone/blend/high mid/low mid/treble/bass/push pull to active/passive)
    - Hipshot A type bridge
    - Hipshot Ultralite tuners

    I bought this bass here, from a fellow TBer, shortly after NAMM and I had it shipped directly to Oscar for a once over/set up, restringing, and a brass nut installation -- all of which are "my treat" in this deal. :bassist: I haven't even played it... :bag::bawl:

    Oscar currently has the bass and it will be shipped directly from him in a hardshell polyfoam case. Priced to sell at a steep/generous discounted price INCLUDING the setup/strings/brass nut at no extra cost to you: $XXXX + shipping. :hyper:

    I have borrowed the pictures below from the original owner and I am working with Oscar on getting more pictures as we speak, but he is really busy at the moment. Needless to say, the bass is basically brand new and in the same exact condition as pictured below.

    Thanks!!

    I played this bass and I really dig it and the weight is extremely comfortable. An overall all around awesome bass at a very good price.

    Oscar has been really busy and there was an apparent gap in communication (he didn't catch the sentence/request for more pics in one of our many emails as of late).

    I received an email from him on Friday and the bass is boxed up and ready to ship out. I guess I could potentially have him ship it to me and I can snap more pictures of it.

    As far as they way it sounds, I have no clips of it and I haven't even held/played it yet. But all relevant sources report that it kills with the Nordstrand pickups and Noll 4 band preamp!

    I intend to!

    I really wish that I was a 6 string guy so that I could justify keeping it. Total impulse buy here folks... :bag: :D

    In fact, I might even turn around and put the dough from the sale towards a Prat Classic 5 with a Koa top that Oscar and I have been discussing. We shall see...

    Someone will get a "new" custom -- and further customized at that -- Prat NAMM piece at a steal though!!

    It's a pretty sweet bass...

    ;)

    I remember that the neck was very nice, and the tone was very even, but unmistakably Jazz Bass.

    Sounds like you have plans for the cash, but just in case: any trade interests?
