    Up for sale one of the most incredible bass around; 2015 Warrior Dran Michael BO5 Private Reserved piece, this bass is a jaw drop gorgeous. It look stunning, it play awesome and it sounds amazing. This is a beast of a bass, super light (by my bathroom scale 8.2 Lbs) thin neck, low action, plays like butter. This bass comes with a J Dran Art 20th Anniversary Guitar Case Valued at $490. This is a private reserved bass, the woods JD used on this bass were save for a special bass and this is it. This bass is just amazing. I give this bass a 9 out 10 because some scratches in the fretboard (Pic), a small ding in the body, some super light hard to see in a picture scratches and lastly one of the screws that tight the preamp place came loose, so JD place a plastic cover to tight it again. The sound of this bass cut through the mix soo good. I also just installed brand new Gold tuners and bridge and brand new Bartolini preamp.


    Asking $2,550 Shipped

    Are the marks on the fretboard cracks or scratches/gouges/dings?

    There are NO cracks at all. One look like the something was press on top and made that line, one look like a scratch, and the other one look like a little gouge. I hope I am describing it right. In all said, unless you look deep into it can't see it. This doesn't affect the bass at all, now neither in the future. If you would see and play this bass you will fall in love with it, i am.

    Thanks Otto, that's what I thought it probably was. I remember when JD built this one. It's stunning.

    I would like to marry this bass. If I could, I would but I don't think I can. Now I'm a heart broken fool...

    I wish I could afford such beauty and sanctity. Best of luck with the sale, pal!

    Absolutely stunning, I'm starting to think you need to open up a bass museum in Hawaii Otto! Great seller who knows his gear. Best of luck.

    The pick ups and preamp are Bartolini that warrior uses. I love their sound, the switch is for the mid freq

    Brother I don't blame you. That bass would never leave me if I owned it.

    You might have been thinking that someone like me would love, play, and take care of the bass. However, someone like me just can't afford it at this time. Maybe one day, if you get nutty again and decide to sell, someone like me will be in a more abundant spot. I'm grateful you let me fantasize about owning it for a brief while.

    Enjoy keeping it, pal!

    I may have missed this, but what is the scale and string spacing? How does it compare to an Rbass?

    Forgive me, Otto B if I'm overstepping my boundaries...your title banner still indicates the bass is, "no longer available."

    Just FYI. Best of luck!

    Love this bass!
