Okay long story short, I traded my 78 Jazz for this Benavente with a fellow TB member (Pitbill) a few months back. Since he already had the bass on consignment at the Low End bass shop in Nashville, I just kept it there, hoping for a cash sale. So here's my disclaimer, I have never had the bass in my hands, and do not have more info than what's given. That being said, according to Pitbill, the bass is in new condition with an incredibly low neck action and it is the first SCD that Benavente had built, hence the #1. A brand new one like this with all the custom features would cost you close to six grand. Also, the bass has been in Brian's possession all these time, and I am sure you guys are all familiar with his excellent reputation, and he does not mess around. Here are the specs: - SCD #1 (First Benavente SCD ever) - Buckey burl top/back - Mesquite burl back - Buckey headstock - Mahogany body - Pearwood core - Maple neck - Ebony Board - Abalone inlays - Lowend Pre: 3 Band/Vol/Vol/Active/passive/single coil switching - Gold/black hardware - Custom spacing, 1 3/4 nut and 18mm string spacing at the bridge EDIT: Now open to trading it down for a less fancy bolt-on Smith (ie, CR5M, BSR5M...etc) plus cash. Here's what I am looking to trade, a 5-string Ken Smith, must have multi-layer body and in reasonable condition. Prefer neck through, but may consider higher end bolt on. Once the deal is agreed upon, I will pay Brian to have the bass shipped to you. You must be willing to ship the Smith to Canada though. **I may also consider a Sadowsky NYC 5, MTD 535 or Alleva Coppollo 5.
