    Some history about this bass: This bass was built in 1989 and was the first 6 string Monarch built. To add to that, I was also the first narrow neck 6 string built (as evidenced by the custom machined bridge). Specs are as follows:
    *Walnut body with Curly Maple top
    *3 piece Maple neck with ebony fretboard
    * neck through construction
    *Brass nut
    *Abalone Block inlays
    *Bartolini Pickups
    *HAZ preamp
    *24 frets, 34" scale
    *Active preamp with bass/treble boost/cut
    *Weight approx. 9lbs (per bathroom scale)
    *16mm string spacing
    The only issue is that the finish is worn on the top side of the upper horn; other than that, there are no other cosmetic or operational issues with this bass. Price dropped to $7500.00 or best reasonable offer, shipped CONUS and with the original Fodera gig bag. Will ship international, but you must pay for the shipping charges. Please note, this is for sale only. Payment plan is available.

    These old Monarchs sound amazing. I had a late 89 five string with the same woods that sounded a cannon. Best of luck with the sale.

    Thanks Ben, they do sound amazing. In my opinion, I prefer them to the newer models. I also had an 89 five with the same woods; it was truly an amazing bass!

    Someone needs to buy this baby soon; I did a session with it last night, I'm tempted to change my mind about selling it.
