    Up for trade/sale is this gorgeous singlecut bolt on Rbass. It has a very comfy 33" scale neck with a great B string! It is in excellent condition with only a few minor dings the worst of which is on the back of the neck in the last picture below. I'm only interested in 5 or 4 string fretted basses in trade. I would sell outright for $2200.

    Body: Top - burled maple/ Core - 2ply Light & Dark Mahogany / Back - Chessnut
    Neck: Imbuia / Burled Ebony / Honduran Mahogany
    Fretboard: Macassar Ebony
    Pickups: Nordstrand custom mm & p style
    Preamp: Aguilar OBP 3 (low, mid, hi)
    3 switches (mute/mid freq/mm pickups split)
    19mm string spacing
    1 3/4" at nut
    Weight is 9.55 lbs.

    Best low B of any R Bass I have heard hands down
    And it's a 33" scale and Honest Abe has done an amazing set up it ready for any gig

    I'm glad that this doesn't have a 16.5 mm spacing! :)

    Just in case anyone had any doubt of how good this bass sounds here is a small funky clip I recorded with it. You can hear how good and well defined the low C is on this track plus how well the higher notes cut through the mix with punch and clarity!

    Played it this morning at church. This is the most comfortable playing bass I've ever owned. And it sounds amazing! Listen for yourself in the clip above.

    I'd be all over this if I didn't already own a 33" Rbass fiver!
