    Alien Audio Lunar 5 string for sale only. Alder body, 35" scale, quartersawn maple neck, nordstrand pickups (dual coil alnico in bridge position), 2-Tek bridge, Mo West Preamp (super sick). Has the typical finish crack from 2-Tek and some finish wear from being my main player but nothing major. Comes with a gig bag and will be well packed. Ask any questions you like. Currently strung with Chromes but I can string it with rounds if you would prefer.

    Trades: Japanese Yamaha BB's, Lakland Skylines, Fender MIJ P or J, Hamer Cruisebass USA, ESP Series 400 J or P. Let me know. All plus cash.

    FYI for string spacing - you can get a back plate from 2TEK that will change the spacing to 18mm.

    Back on the market! This Alien Audio Lunar 5 smokes! If you want strings other than the flats on it now, let me know and I will throw a set of nickel rounds on it.

    The additional switch on my Lunar 5 is called the "engineer switch." It is a fake switch that you flick when the engineer tells you he wants x, y, or z. Flick the switch and then ask, "is that better?"

    Is the bridge pickup two coils? If so, I can see that engineer switch being a series/single/parallel switch in a heartbeat.

    Yes, the bridge pickup is dual coils. You are right, that switch could be super useful!
