Up for sale is a gorgeous Alien Audio Lunar 5 with the double P configuration. This bass is phenomenal in every sense of the word. It plays like a dream, the Mo West Preamp is incredibly musical, and the pickup configuration/preamp provide this bass with a unique tonal palette suitable for any situation. I’ve gotten compliments on the tone and looks of this instrument every time it’s been in the studio or on stage.

    Specs:
    34” scale 21 frets
    9.5 lbs.
    Roasted Alder Body
    Roasted Flame Maple Neck
    Ebony Board
    Bone Nut
    18MM Adjustable Hipshot A Bridge
    Hipshot Ultralite Lollipop Tuners
    Mo West Alien 3 Band Preamp with modern and vintage circuit and overdrive circuit
    Nordstrand NP5 Pickups
    Sonic Blue Poly Finish

    The bass will ship with a hard case. I’ll also include a black pick guard. The condition of the instrument is excellent. I can only find one ding, which is on the horn of the bass (pictured). Please don’t hesitate to dm me for any more details or questions.

    Trade interests:

    Noble preamp + cash
    Lakland Skyline 44-64 + cash (preferably black)
    Rob Allen fretless
    Pino Palladino + cash from me
    P bass

    Anything else, it doesn’t hurt to ask!

    After I missed the opportunity to buy this bass i bass,I ordered one from Chopper. Love the baby blue with the roasted neck. That was exactly what I was looking for. Super happy with my custom though. I know this will sell!

    These things balance great. I prefer the balance on mine to that of my Sadowsky

    I want this back so bad.
    Don’t really have any trade bait unfortunately. Unless you’d reconsider my Elite Jazz 5 with Sadowsky pre……

    These are new to me, but look interesting - do you know the weight, and the fingerboard radius? I don't need this, and I'm a 19mm kind of guy, but it surely is intriguing!
