Here is a beautiful, near perfect condition BN-5 with the original, practically new gig bag. This one has the following two upgrades: auburn burst finish and mac ebony board which would cost $3817.50 ( + shipping) new. The Macassar ebony board imparts a very articulate tone that is perfect for slap or finger style. I think it adds enough additional stiffness over a maple board that the b is much stronger than the fbass I had with a maple board. I prefer the sound of this one to my mable fb fbass I had. I bought this one off tb and decided to sell my Spector ( http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/ft-spector-ns-5xl-beautiful-buckeye-burl-usa-953929/ ) to offset the cost. I've gotten sentimental and want to keep the Spector so this one has to go. I'm looking to get $2675 shipped conus. No trades please, if I could afford to trade it, I'd keep It.
