    Price:
    $1599
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    New Hampshire
    Now $1599 (was $1699 SHIPPED) (CONTINENTAL US)

    TRADES: LOOKING FOR 5 STRING FRETLESS OF EQUAL VALUE. I DON'T MIND ADDING A BIT OF CASH FOR THE RIGHT BASS. MESSAGE ME WITH ANY OFFERS.


    This is great bass. Very versatile. Plays nicely. Just not really my cup of tea. I have a Sadowsky RV5 and a MTD535, so this bass just doesn't get any play time and I don't have a 5 string fretless and would like one.


    This is from the last owner (From whom I got this bass):

    Benavente Classic PJ5. This bass features an alder body with a really nice mocha transparent finish. The neck is one piece super flamed maple with a pau ferro fingerboard. The pickups are Ulyate and are matched to Benavente's own custom preamp. The controls are Volume/Volume/Tone/Bass Boost/Treble boost & cut. It has active/passive switching, and passive tone control as well. 34 inch scale with 18mm spacing.

    There are a couple of decent size 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 love the tones you can get from this bass. Great, passive, old school stuff, and some nice huge, bass-ey, modern stuff too. The flame neck is just awesome in person.

    Clip of me playing bass. Great bridge pick up tone.

    This is my perfect 5-string. I hope it's still available in 100 years when:
    1. I'm not broke
    and
    2. I don't suck at 5-string.

    LOL. Well if in a hundred years from now I'm still alive and have the bass, it's yours. :D
