    Hi Folks,

    I thought I'd keep this one around forever, but alas, after 30+ years, my taste has moved to passive-toned beasties.

    This is a tough one as it's definitely unique and most likely the only one in the universe in this configuration.

    Here we have a '93 mute-bridge single H mojo tone monster with a 3-band pre and a stunning Marty Bell red/gold flip-flop finish (red to gold to maroon and everything in between). Being that I'm most comfortable on 1.5" neck profiles, I threw a 2010 Stealth SLO Special neck on it. It cost me a lot of scratch to accomplish this, but viola! The world's only mute-bridge SLO Special!! I also bought some larger chrome pan-head screws for the pickguard as I liked the look of those screws on the S.U.B.s. The entire package is stunning IMO.

    The mutes are in excellent shape. The tone is killer (these early '90s 'Rays just ooze mojo).

    I wish I could say that the neck fit like a glove, but there is the slightest of gaps on the bass side of the heel. I can't fit a credit card in there, but in the spirit of full disclosure, it needs to be stated. With that said, it is after all, a six-bolter, so it's not budging. It's solid and plays like a dream.

    Also comes with a one-off custom made lenticular (3D motion) Angry Bird pickguard (see last pic) and a generic hard shell case!

    Priced to move at [DEL]$975[/DEL] $900 shipped ConUS!

    Amazing bass! If it was a 5'er it'd be mine. This won't last long here on TB.
