    I have for trade a rare reverend brad houser 5 in bug eye finish. i believe there was only 79 of these basses made, and only 8 in this color option.
    this is a players bass and shows some signs of wear, most notably some tarnishing on the front finish and lots of scratches on the back, but due to the finish, they can only be seen at certain angles in certain light, and by no means effects playability. I will try to take better pics of these tomorrow in the daylight
    Those of you that love reverend basses know that this is their flagship model and dont come around often.
    entertaining all trade offers, but would love to trade up with cash from me for a roscoe, sadowsky, lull, pedulla. trade value set at $1400. $1200 cash.
    comes with a reverend gigbag

    Greetings from the North,

    That is cool indeed. It's the first BH5 I've seen with the Bug Eye top & back.

    after about 20 attempts i was able to capture the wear at the right angle and lighting, this is the front, it looks worse in the pics than it actually is, you have to tilt and move around in light to see it

    this is the back, no spotting like on the front, but lots of scratching, again very hard to photograph
