    I really hate to let this one go. This is by far the best five string bass I have ever owned. She's been in the case for three months so it's time to move her to where she will be used. I'm just a four string player and they just suit me better. Aggie OBP-1 with the treble pot having the tone roll off so you can go from Jazz supper slap tone to a nice and subdued P with just a twist of the knob. Couple of small marks you can see in the pics but nothing too bad. I played this bass a lot but she's in very good condition. Supper light so you can work all night. $2950 Shipped Conus.

    Here are the specs:

    ABll 5X Special Edition run # 10 of 12

    Body - Walnut
    Body Top - Cocobolo
    Neck - Walnut 5 piece
    Fingerboard - Wenge
    37B- 34G scale
    Pre amp - Aguilar OBP-1
    Rotary pup selector
    Active passive switch
    Pickups - Dingwall FD3
    Weight - 7.85 pounds
    Shipping date from Dingwall - 4 13 2010
    Reunion Blues Continental Gig Bag
    DW tool kit

    I'll listen to four string partial trades but I'm picky. Mostly looking for interesting G&L's

    Please PM me with any questions/ offers to keep the thread clean. ABII%20002_zpsxku9opvm.jpg


    Thanks for looking.

    Holly canoli!!! If I had not just splurged on a Sadowsky, I would have seriously considered this. Superb!

  5. Gorgeous! I have serious DAS for an AB3X, but between this one and ABNate's ABII, it's hard not to just go for an ABII!

    Another great guy to deal with here as well.

    This is a really cool bass that I've been fortunate enough to play several times. A beautiful sonic and physical balance!
    It sounds great flat; the pickups and electronics allow for even more fine tuning.

    I'm a four string cat as well, otherwise, I'd be tapping the savings account!!
