    Well, this arrived yesterday, and it's a beauty! Magnificent clarity, and beautiful harmonic signature. Feather weight! Super comfortable! Very close to BRAND NEW CONDITION!! What's not to like??

    (sigh) Sadly, I could tell within five minutes that I'm just not going to jive with the 35 inch scale length.
    Was worth a try!! I started playing Medium Scale exclusively about six years ago, but the last couple of years I have been doing the bulk of my playing on Kramer short scales. And it turns out that 30 to 35 is just too much of a jump for me. (If you play 34 inch scale I doubt you would notice the difference - super slim profile and narrow nut width makes this neck super comfortable.)

    I highly recommend this bass for anyone who likes to play with distortion pedals, all-tube grit and/or a barrage of effects: the clarity is simply unmatched. I think you could also file this bass under "Ultimate Slap Machine" as well... :)

    See all the pics and description in the original listing here

    This bass comes with a nice gig bag. This can ship world-wide as there are no CITES issues, thanks to the Pau Ferro fretboard.

    I'll add a few more pics later...

    ...here are a few more pix, to supplement the listing link above:

    (Frets appear to be brand new, like the rest of this instrument - basically pristine)
    20190720_GBASS (24).

    the carbon-fiber weave is basically invisible under the high-gloss piano-lacquer finish, but from just the right angle, you can make it out on the back of the headstock... (it's a light refraction effect, it is actually smooth to the touch)
    20190720_GBASS (19).

    the small scuff at the top of the headstock - almost invisible...
    20190720_GBASS (13).

    the only notable flaw is this tiny dent near the output jack - finish is dented in, but not broken to the point of flaking...
    20190720_GBASS (9).

    here are some pics of the gig bag (with the bass in it) - the case is nicely lined inside...

    Heads-up: if anyone here was pondering this, it's going up on reverb/ebay tonight, so might not be around much longer

    that's a really cool bass. someone should take it.

    where does that pickup land on the string? it looks like it may be almost between a MM and P placement? interesting. or my eyes are messin' with me!
