    Priced to sell!

    This is a a great looking and sounding bass that I purchased here on TB a few years back. I had the pre amp and pickups changed out

    Bartolini 3 band pre amp (Bal, Vol (pass, active switch) Treble, Mid (2 freq switch) Bass
    Nordstrand NPJ5S hum canceling pickups (installed 9/18)
    Hipshot bridge 19mm
    Beautiful one piece flamed maple neck with pau ferro fingerboard
    about 9.5 lbs

    I had Chris Benavente make a tort pickguard for me so you will receive that along with the black guard
    (there is a pick with the black guard with old pickups)

    I just had a set up done at Philtones in Baltimore
    DR Hi Beams 45-125

    Lots of cash into this one, buyer will surely get a deal

    There are a couple of nicks on the front, which you can clearly see in the pics. Other than that, it is in excellent overall condition. The new Hagstrom hard case is included.

    I really like this bass, I made a few changes to get it to my liking but when it comes down to it I am a MM Stingray 5 guy and I am am just learning to accept that fact.

    Shipping 48 US only add $70.00

    Great looking bass here. Could we please know the scale? Also, looks like smaller vintage style frets, correct?

    34 in scale. I would be guessing on frets.. they are similar to my fender jazz...maybe med jumbo..they dont seem all that small like my 77 stingray has...but don't quote me on that
    very nice condition

    I did get a SR5 yesterday so not really interested in trades.. It would have to be something real special.
