    Looking to trade my custom Drake Marilyn. In very nice condition overall, has a couple small depressions on the body but they are hardly noticeable and cannot get them to show up in pictures. Copied Info from Drake:

    Neck is made of 2 pieces of quarter sawn Wenge topped with a 24 fret, 34 inch scale Wenge fretboard. bound the fretboard with Bloodwood to give this bass some color.

    Her peghead facings are Wenge and the neck is finished in just a light coat of oil that gives her a raw smooth feel and a matte appearance.

    Wenge is a self stabilized wood that does not require finish to resist warping. She also sports two carbon fiber stab rods and a dual action truss rod.

    Her body is of blonde colored light weight Swamp Ash with a Wenge center block. Her satin finish is a light poly varnish to seal the wood without killing the tone.

    Her electronics package consists of two EMG 3.0 Jazz pickups wired in a 9 volt configuration. These pickups are dead quiet even at high volume levels. The combination of wood and electronics makes this bass have a warmer focused low end and warm poppy mids and highs.

    Hipshot brand hardware on this bass. Ultra-lite tuners, and an A style bridge that allows the player to adjust spacing.

    She weighs in at 8 lbs. and measures 1.5 inches wide at the nut and 2.5 inches wide at the 24th fret

    I can post more pictures on request and it comes with a very nice Mono Vertigo case. Pretty open on trades for 4 or 5 strings and can do +/- cash
