    A slick little rumbler indeed, I’m generally not much of an EMG guy but these (40P and 40J) really work in this one. A click under 9 pounds on the bathroom Health-O-Meter, chambered Purpleheart core with Black Limba front and back making for a bit of a pretty cool hippie sandwich. Wenge neck and board (33” scale, 1 15/16” nut width, 18mm spacing) with more Purpleheart and Limba on the little end, plenty of exotics for any botanists reading. In excellent condition with no noticeable scratches or bangs, played very little as I’ve just never bonded with the shorter scale thing. Includes a very solid well fitting Gator hard case, $1200 plus $25 to help a kid out with the FedEx bite.

    This was my first five string, built by Andrew Drake for me. It's a very solid fiver. All African woods. Great B string response. Big, big low sounds. I gigged it a handful of times....it sat extremely well in the mix and my band mates loved the solid bottom it brought. It would still be here, except I was going through a phase where I had decided to focus on 4 strings only, so I sold it.

    This is a bargain, as it would probably cost $3,800 to commission this bass today.

    This bass is everything Trabeen says it is and then some.

    Good on ya, Kevin....you will like this one. I played it out when I was working with Steve George, and the man loves his bass foundation. Hope to see you with it.
