    For trade 2005 Aria Pro II SB-CB Cliff Burton signature:
    The SB-CB electric bass helped to define the New Wave of Heavy Metal that dominated the world in the 80's. Its powerful tone and fast neck attracted bass players who needed an instrument with bone-crushing tone and lightning speed. As time went on players from other genres, like Funk and Blues, discovered that the SB-CB was the perfect bass for them. Play the SB-CB and find out what this bass can do for you!

    the heart of the SB-CB is the unique B.B. Circuit. This circuit gives the SB-CB a ton of sonic flexibility, literally at the turn of a single knob. Each of the six presets change the frequency of a low pass filter, which changes the character of the bass tone.
    Here are the settings:
    1. 1377 Hz - A smooth and round tone. Very foundational sound for big basslines.
    2. 723 Hz - A warm tone with a low mid bump. This setting is cool for a modern slap tone.
    3. 496 Hz - Tight mids and bright highs. Perfect for tapping or playing with distortion.
    4. 340 Hz - A thinner tone than #3. Ideal for soloing over a band.
    5. 229 Hz - Great simulated hollowbody sound.
    6. 186 Hz - High, crispy tone. Excellent for chord melody playing.The mini-switch turns on and off the B.B. Circuit, and the LED shows the strength of the battery (as the battery drains the LED becomes weaker).

    Hmmm. Interesting that the CB Signature is Active while the bass he played, an Aria Pro II SB B-n-G I, was passive. I have a newer SB-1000, which is what the electronics seems on this bass seem to be. (Awesome electronics BTW!!!)

    What's the measurement on the Nut? My '05 SB-1000 has a Petite 1.5" while the 80's examples were 1.75".

    I wish I had a Fender to trade. Are you FIRM on your trades? I may have some interesting basses without an "F"-Word on the headstock!

    I'll check on the nut width, and i didn't say anything about having to be Fender, just P or j bass. :)....

    I would also consider a two for one trade, with the USA Tobias Growler that i have listed, for the right trade.

    I have the same bass just mine is a 1994. These things are seriously awesome both sound and quality wise. Very versatile tonally. I use this for a lot of jazz fusion stuff and the guys I jam with love it.

    Someone grab this tone machine honoring one of the greatest metal bassist ever. You won't be disappointed.
