    Huge range of sound from this very beautiful and versatile Benavente bass. Flawless construction and high quality components. Playability and performance is nothing short of amazing

    Bass is almost in mint condition with just a little dink under the bridge right next to the switches, you can see it clearly in the last pic, otherwise the bass is completely mint.

    I'll get the weight's today, but all are 34" scale with 19mm adjustable spacing.

    All basses are chambered except the fretless so not heavy but also not crazy light to the point where the tone sounds airy, these bass sound deep tight and punchy.

    Updated with Aprox weight's taken with a bathroom scale, they all came in at or around 4kg's but i'm not fully trusting the scale to be exact so maybe add 200grams to each given weight to be safe. They're not heavy basses but they're not super light either, they sound and feel great.

    Holly Top is now available again, i have been stuffed around like you wouldn't believe on this bass, extremely frustrating. Payment made, bass shipped then payment withdrawn before the buyer even got the bass (without any communication) so i had to holt the bass in transit and have it returned to me, lost $160 in shipping in the process.

    This was through eBay not TB.

    Anyway it's available again.
