    Ok, so this one is tough. This has been my
    number 1 for years. I am the only owner.

    She is currently with Chris Benavente getting the pickups looked at, having a noise issue. He is also giving her a look over and some TLC

    This is the only 6 string oracle that Chris has made. Also, I'm pretty sure he is no longer making these anymore. It plays like a dream and if you have a light touch, is setup for SUPER low action.

    4 slim humbuckers
    Holly top and back
    34 scale
    19mm spacing
    Black limba body
    9pc neck with wenge, mahogany and ebony
    Pale moon ebony fretboard
    Currently has an aguilar opb-3 preamp
    But the original will come with it.
    Hipshot detuner on B string

    Had wood knobs to begin with but switched to metal ones due to durability reasons.

    She is in great shape, I've babied her as much as possible over these years.

    I am doing this to help fund the rest of my nursing degree. She will ship from Chris' shop in a mono gig bag.

    $6500 or best offer! Partial trades are a possibility

    I find the bass gorgeous, looks very close to my old Om except it has the cut out in the single cut portion, any other difference between this and an Om? I ask because the price difference between your bass and Om's is significant.

    They are somewhat similar but they are different shapes. Also, the Divinity is completely built from start to finish by Chris. Chris only did the wood work in the Om, then they were sent to Brian at the lowend.

    The Om is a 3 piece neck vs 9 on this Oracle
    The body detail on this bass is way higher than the Om. The neck profiles are different.

    The Om is very slim body, where as this is not.

    Overall this is a much nicer instrument.
    I had a Om holly 5 for a few... Good bass but not in this league.

    Chris might chime in and elaborate more

    This all makes sense, it looks to be in a different league than the Om's for sure. It is personally my favorite single cut shape. Also having owned almost everything out there I always find Benavente's build quality, playability, and sound to be some of the best out there.

    What trades are you looking for?

    I'll drop it to 5500 shipped or best offer. Thinking on it, I really need to move this before the end of this month.
