    Hey Folks!

    Here's my custom creation, up on the block to fund a recent purchase.

    It's my version of a 5 string Decade. I took a SBMM Ray 35, gutted it. Michael Dolan refinned it to Surf Green and filled in the battery box cavity, then routed to fit 2 Chi Sonics (Single Coils). I wired everything up passive (V/V/T with a series switch). The back of the neck has been buffed out to a very nice gloss, feels just like my AVRI Fender. Comes in a Stingray 5 HSC.

    $800 shipped! No trades please.

    Just a quick bump. Also, wanted to note that there is no processing on the bass in the track - straight in to interface.

    I really dig this. Unfortunately all I've got to give are some trades.

    Man that clip sounds great, amazing tone. The 5th string low notes are really clear too. Nice bass!

    What's the story with the Chi Sonics? Are they low resistance, high output?

    Thanks all! It's still available for now. The ChiSonics are neo magnets, and I think I remember resistance in the 6k range - but that could be my imagination. Either way, they're very full-range and dynamically responsive. I definitely enjoy their sound.
