    This bass sounds completely different than the stock Benavente Dimarzio Ultra Jazz/Suhr setup. Much warmer and punchier and the fingerstyle tone is sweet. New pickups/routing and preamp custom done by Carey Nordstrand.

    The body was stripped and refinished with clear satin laquer so its like new. The playability is superb , very fast feel, low action ,a soft C shaped neck, fresh Fodera SS .40's as well. This is a lot of bass for the $$.


    $1500 SHIPPED

    i would guess 8.5 lbs. It feels a bit on the lighter side to me. I will put it on the bathroom scale and post.
