    Price:
    1800
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    California
    (Accidentally marked sold in my last thread while trying to bump (controls are way too close on mobile...)

    $1800 (Was $1900) 2016 Alien Audio Constellation 5 string, Double P.

    I call it “The Smooth Muthaf***a” because it’s a smooth muthaf***a. I’m the first owner.
    • Alder body with a blue-black metallic finish. Looks conservative, but pops under lights in a big way.
    • Maple neck, pau ferro fingerboard, 34” scale
    • Hipshot hardware
    • Dual Nordstrand P-pickups (reverse P in the bridge position)
    • Alien Audio’s custom Mo West designed preamp of doom
    • Ships in a sturdy Access gigbag.

      A wicked smooth and versatile bass. The Mo West pre might be the most powerful onboard pre I’ve encountered (imagine gutting a VT Bass pedal and putting the guts in the control cavity of a sweet axe... It’s pretty much like that). With all controls flat and the blend centered, you get just about the smoothest, sweetest tone you can imagine. Goose the blend towards the neck and you get... well, a rockin’ p-bass. Towards the bridge to favor the reverse P, and its reminiscent of a PJ with a soapbar in the bridge position. Balance the pickups and pull up on the tone pot and you go into “Hi-Fi mode” which gives you shades of MTD. In Hi-Fi mode, turn the blend 25% towards the rear and boost the EQ, and you can cop a surprisingly convincing Stingray. That’s not all: pull on on the volume pot and you get a totally usable overdrive.

    Thinking about pulling this one down... I'd regret parting with her.
