    This is an older Pavel Hadara 6 model AFAIK. Walnut top, Bubinga wings, EMG pickups and two band preamp with volume/pan/bass/treble plus mute switch. Looks as good as the photos, plays and sounds even better. Frets and finish just gone over by a professional. $2650 shipped to the lower 48 with a gigbag. Not really looking for trades unless it's really, really something out of the ordinary.

    EDIT: Just been informed that this is a Macabee, not Hadara. Not sure what the difference is in the models.

    Looks nice. Pretty but still businesslike -- not as in plain, but as in "Let's get to work!"

    Do you know the scale length and spacing on this bass? Also, is that a small crack pictured near the bottom strap button?

    How would you characterize the tone and feel of this bass? Anything you'd compare it to/contrast it with?

    Brad, you might not recall it, but you helped me out months back with some valuable perspective on a couple of basses I was considering -- so, bump for a knowledgeable and helpful guy who'll give you a hand just because.

    Thanks, Mark.

    34" scale, looks like around 17.5-18mm spacing. It can go narrower. I have it set up asymmetrically... a little wider on the C string side since I prefer 19mm spacing. With this setup I have no problems getting my fingers between the upper strings to pull on them. Basically the same setup I did on my 97 Zon Legacy Standard fretless5 and 1984 Tobias 5, both long term gigging basses of mine. I have no issues playing this bass.

    The crack is smooth to the touch, you can see it in both close-up pics. Doesn't look like it's going anywhere and doesn't affect anything.

    Nice B, very open sounding bass with lots of highs on tap. Kind of Smith-like with a more open top end. I have it strung with DR Fatbeam stainless steel. Actually pretty similar to my 92 Ash/Wenge MTD 635. I use Nickel strings on the MTD, they would probably be nice on this for someone who wanted a different sound.

    Glad I could help and thanks again.
    :cool:
