    Location:

    I have a flawless condition Status Graphite Stealth fretless, headless, 5 string for sale.
    If you are familiar with the Stealth model you probably know that it is made from a one piece, cast carbon fiber body. The neck does have an easy access truss rod but due to the construction and carbon fiber, it is ridiculously stable even through temperature and weather changes that we experience in Texas.
    It has amazing clarity, articulation and sustain! "Mwwaaahhh" for days!
    This bass balances perfectly in the playing position and is one of the lightest basses I've ever owned.

    Some of the specifications:
    One piece woven carbon graphite moulding body (very light weight!)
    High gloss finish
    34" scale
    5 string
    headless (uses double ball OR single ball strings of your choice using the set screws that come with the bass)
    24 fret
    Phenolic fingerboard
    Black hardware
    Custom "micro lined" fret board with fret markers placed at the proper "fretting" positions
    Custom blue "wrap around" LEDs, again placed at the fretting positions
    18mm string spacing
    Status "Board 303" 18V Electronics (master volume, pick up blend, bass boost/cut, treble boost/cut, variable midrange frequency boost/flat/cut 3 way toggle)
    Status Soapbar pickups with neck pickup placed closer to the bridge than standard model
    Set up with brand new Status "Hotwire" light gauge strings
    Includes another brand new set of Hotwire strings
    Status Graphite Hiscox molded hard case with all instructions, tools, keys

    I'm asking $2600 shipped anywhere in the United States. NO TRADES THANKS!

    The bass has a flawless gloss finish over the carbon fiber. Any distortions you see in the pics below are reflections from objects/carpet in the room!

    Don't let the graphite fool you. The Stealth is not a "one trick pony"! Yes, it can do the "modern" fretless tone like no other BUT it can also do an excellent "semi-hollow/acoustic" tone as well. The carbon fiber "shell" (for lack of a better description) is wrapped around a lightweight body core. It can sound very resonant and open if you like!
    Favor the neck pickup and adjust your hand position and presto!...very acoustic and nearly "upright" tone.

    I can't give this beauty away but I've got my eyes on a few other basses I'd really like and I'm feeling very generous this holiday week/weekend. Make me an offer!
