    Up for sale is a bass i got from a talk bass member funkboy5 on jan 13 2010. it is LOADED!!!! I combined his description along with mine below. The East preamp is a beast in both active and passiive. check it out. Price 635.00. shipped. NO case or gig bag. U.S only. No trades. Paypal will work. Yes during the holidays I dropped it to 585. Now I am putting it back up for 635, and with the upgrades it is worth it.


    This KSD705 has the ash/maple combo with terrific sounding Nordstrsnd NJ5FS pups and East J RETRO DELUXE preamp. . Currently sporting a solid black pickguard. The previous owner did a great job on the mods IMO, added the Lakland bridge and reshaped the headstock. Specs below.

    How would yo describe the sound with the Nords/J Retro? Is it vintage or more hi-fi/modern?

    Not hi-fi to me at all. More like. Nice and warm. I play it side by side with my Marcus miller 5 with the Marcus east retro with nordsroms and it sounds just as good but of course differnt.

    Dropped price to 585.00 the upgrades of the pre amp andBridg alone are worth it not to mention the pickups! it will not go any lower. I will just keep it if it does not find a home.

    I just got one on a trade with an Audere preamp which is great. Plannig to change the bridge an tuning machines to a Hipshot, plus Duncan or Aguilar picups to make an amazing upgraded bass.
