    Ash/maple PJ 5 string built by Chris Benavente.
    34" scale
    1 3/4" nut
    18mm string spacing
    Ulyate pickups
    Hipshot hardware
    3 tone sunburst finish
    Comes with Fender gig bag
    Bass is a year old

    Chris is a bass building Gawd and this is a perfect example of his expertise. No parts and he even does his own finish(which is beautifully done). I already have another PJ 5 of his and I don't really play a lot of 5 string to begin with. Bass gets super low action and sounds great. For those that don't know, Chris built the LEJ jazz basses for many years. These are as nice as any Sadowsky/Lull/Alleva.

    Bass is in very good condition. Tried to document some of the dings/scratches but they really don't pick up.

    Paid $2350 new

    Looking for 4 string only trades. P, J, or PJ style basses preferred. Also interested in Rics and hollow-bodies. Willing to add cash for the right trade or take cash+bass. Love me some AVRI basses.

    Would ideally trade up towards a Fender CS P or J with cash added as needed.

    No 5, 6 strings, and no Ibanez/Warwick/hippie sandwich basses please.

    Benavente are some of the best built, and best playing basses I've ever owned. Chris is one of the better craftsmen in the business.
