    For sale/trade is a really great bass guitar:

    !Mint condition! Early 1980s Carruthers CB5 5 string bass $2500us new
    Figured Quilted maple top
    Figured birdseye maple neck
    Brazillian rosewood fretboard
    Figured Alder back
    EMG DC Active pickups
    Custom Carruthers preamp
    Straplocks & Comfort Strapp (actual name)
    Professional Hardcase

    Notes:
    - You can't tell in the pictures but all woods excluding the fretboard have a 3D shimmer in the light, it's very nice wood.
    - Great tone - deep punchy bass (a lot of pickups don't have great deep bottom but these do)
    - May need a setup to be higher/lower action (string height) to your liking
