  1. hey... this has just popped up on looks like fellow tb'er eubassix has more up his sleeve (hope you don't mind was gutted i didnt get the gorgeous GB Rumor)...

    this a Benavente Custom 4 looks like an early model in amore tradional style than the lastest crazy (in a good way) designs

    specs are as follows

    Alder body
    Quiled/Spalted Mapel Top
    5 piece neck
    (b'eye mapel/padouk/zebers/b'eye mapel)
    24fret Ebony Fingerboard with Blue LED's
    EMG soapbards
    EMG 18v 3-band active pre-amp
    Hipshot A Bridgr and lite tuners

    and heres some piccy's






    last image looks like a dint in the wood but this can be got rid off i am sure.. ...

    He wants £999 ($1700) for it.. which is pretty reasonable...

    Any thoughts

    Looks like the same bass Brian Barrett had on his site last year for $999.00

    Yea that bass went to Canada. It was a local guy to Chris Benavente in OR. Chris had original built it for the owner about 4 or 5 years ago or so when he did the standard body shape. The custom ordered a newer Benavente and traded that one in, which is why I had it posted. Not sure how it got to the UK or if it really did.
    Its not a bad bass, but nothing to compare to the newer instruments..

    Hope that helps,
