    Pretty Awesome bass here. Its like brand new. I couldnt find a scratch. Description for the player who commisioned it...

    "Why am I selling? The build took a little longer than original quoted ( 3 or 4 months longer) time.. SO.. my MM gas got a hold of me and I acquired a 5 String Musicman with the Piezo option ( which Matt Pulcinella told me he doesn't do ). I ended up really liking the Piezo option A LOT so now I have 2 basses in the same Ballpark Sonic Spectrum. I paid $1800 for the bass and $400 for the Custom Duncan so it's valued @ $2400 and I just received it around 2 months ago."
    My addition puts the new value at $2200...lol, but a steal for this very well crafted, hi optioned, and well hardwared bass. It plays amazing and is a svelt 8.2 lbs.
    get it while its hot. comes with gigbag


    34" Scale
    5 String
    Ebony Board
    Ash Body
    Seymour Duncan Custom Shop SMB5A for 19mm spacing (non exposed covers)
    Nordstrand 3 band pre active/passive
    3 push/pull for Series/Parallel, Active/Passive, mid freq
    Passive Tone
    sound clip from original owner

    Bump for Nawlins greatest bassist and very accurate describer of his basses. I have bought a few basses from Robert and would not hesitate to do so again. If I was looking................but I'm not at the moment.
    Good luck with the sale!!!

    Those are SO nice- can't use a fretted 5er so much, though. Defret it & I'll give you a wenge-necked, 98 Thumb BO-4..?

    Not a problem! Good luck with the sale. I'm amazed this is still here. Anyone who has ever wanted a Stingray with wider string spacing should be jumping all over this. Maybe add a custom tort pickguard just for fun...dang.

    I was very interested in this bass but decided to go a different route because I'm a jazz bass guy.

    You're getting a 2000 (plus) dollar custom hand built bass for literally half the price. Also I'm not a big "preamp" guy, but the Nordy pre's that Carey makes these days are some of the most usable pre's i've ever used.
