    No trades except for a Musicman Stingray 5.

    Was asking $1025, now $750 shipped CONUS - Paypal or Money Order. Local pickup in Nashville OK. If using a money order, the money will have to clear into my bank account before I ship.

    I'm selling this fantastic bass that a friend built for me a couple months ago. All parts are brand new. It's been played maybe an hour. We both had to get the custom bass bug out of our system. I'm more of a Warwick guy and not a Jazz-style bass guy, but if I were I'd keep this one for sure. It's very woody and growly/barky in tone, and sounds just fantastic.

    It's in perfect condition save for the slighest scratch on the chrome electronics plate.

    Specs are as follows:
    -Warmoth Ash/black high polish finished body
    -Warmoth Maple neck with Maple fingerboard
    -Schaller bridge
    -Schaller tuners
    -EMG Active Jazz pickups

    The electronics configuration is active pickups, no preamp, and each pickup has a volume knob along with the single tone knob. All pieces from the EMG pickup setup included that will allow you to add one of their active preamps if you so desire (preamp not included.)

    A couple sound clips my friend recorded when he got the bass together:

    This is with a SansAmp on the SVT setting with a little OD in front of it.

    Ships in a Warwick deluxe gig bag.

    Saturday bump :)

    I'd consider trades for a 5 string Stingray.

    I like the way it sounds. slightly compressed but clear according to the clip. How's the B feel and sound?

    Not sure on the weight. I can find out. 34" scale
    B is tight and low.

    Unless that means Stingray 5, no thanks :D

    Sorry, forgot to get the weight earlier.

    It's just a tiny bit over 10 lbs (analog bathroom scale..)
