2012 Pavel Hadara Deluxe. It is quite simply the best playing bass I have ever owned. I thought this would be THE bass that I'll take to the grave. Better than Roscoe, Sadowsky, Lakland, Pedulla, Sandberg I previously owned. The craftsmanship is top notch and it has the most incredible buckeye burl top you'll ever see. I'm selling because I just don't play enough to justify having such a magnificent instrument sitting in a case being un-played. There is one little dimple near the control cavity (pictured) otherwise it's spotless. Top: Buckeye Burl Core: Wenge Back: Swamp Ash Neck: Maple/Wenge/Maple, 24 frets, 34" scale Fretboard: Rosewood Pickups: Pavel Custom Alnico V Electronics: Aguilar OBP-3 18V Hardware: Hipshot Black Bridge spacing: 18mm (Adjustable) Weight: 9 pounds per the previous owner. It feels more like 8 pounds. Great balance. Control layout: Volume(passive/active), Pickup Blend, Treble, Mid(P/P freq. select), Bass Series/Parallel coil tap switches for each pickup. One of the coil tap switch had noise and it's been professionally replaced by Eric Chaz guitar shop. Recently got it set up by Eric as well. Action is super low. Includes after market hardshell case with slight bent edge but will do the job for shipping and daily use. Shipping to CONUS ONLY. For trade: I might consider a nice jazz 5 string plus cash, but the cash is king. This is the bass featured on Pavel's website.
