Purchased by the original owner in '95 in Montreal, it was built by a guy named Mike Ostrzenski using pretty exotic woods: •Neck: wenge and purpleheart multi-laminate •Board: wenge •Body: walnut •Top: zebrano with ebony inlay The "pickguard" is actually a disc of ebony inlaid flush into the top, pickups are Bartolini J-J with passive vol/vol/tone controls, bridge is a Schaller recessed into the top and scalloped at the tail end, tuners are Hipshot Ultralights, and the whole thing is satin finished in tung oil. It has a very low action and plays incredibly well, in all honesty it's probably the best feeling/playing five string neck I've ever come across. The bass has a zero fret with a wenge string spacer, 34" scale, weighs 8.5lbs and is very well-balanced sitting or standing. As you can tell from the pictures, some of the finish work is a bit rough around the edges. The neck is really a work of art, but the rest of the woodwork is NOT what you'd expect from a top-level custom builder. Thanks to the folks at La Lutherie MF who spent a lot of time on fretwork, setup, and finishing, it plays and sounds like a dream, but if you want perfection look elsewhere. Priced at a very low $600 shipped, includes a Tolex hardshell case, Schaller strap locks, and custom suede strap. I'm really only looking for a sale, but I'd be interested in a 3LeafAudio You're Doom pedal as a partial trade If you have any questions of course feel free to ask. Cheers!
