    Absolutely phenomenal bass!! The lowest action I have EVER played. No dead spots whatsoever. Incredible across the whole range. Walnut top over a walnut body w/ matching walnut headstock, Ebony board, STR massive bridge and tuners, STR single coils, Bartolini 3 band preamp ( Volume push/pull active/passive, Blend, Passive Tone Control, Bass, Mid, treble, 3 way mid switch). Will post pictures tomorrow. Here's some videos of it in action, these are all salsa but believe me this bass can cover ANY style. Will be posting more sound samples later. This has been my main bass for about 3 years now, it has seen countless sessions and gigs. I am going to miss this big time.


    now open to possible trades, especially with some money coming my way.

    Again with the STR bump. This is top-tier Japanese boutique stuff. Satoru's basses are splendouriffic.

    Yes indeed they are, I owned a 6 string and the craftsmanship is amazing. Extremely comfortable neck for a 6 string bass and the sound was amazing. That is why they are called the Japanese Fodera's.

    The ebony fingerboard is part of their sound. They cut thru the mix.…great luthiers.
