    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!!!

    Very nice! MPG doesn't screw around for quality of construction, and it looks so pretty.

    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.
