    I'm selling my beloved Benavente 6. I had this built in 2003 and it has truly served me well. It has been my main live and recording bass for the last 12 years. It has toured with me in Blues Traveler around the states and world and is every bit as solid as it was the day I received. it. It is made of beautiful brazilian rosewood on korina, 3 pc maple neck, ebony fingerboard and brazilian rosewood pickups covers and knobs. The PUPS and Pre are all Benavente custom. In addition it has Piezo saddles and has the 13 pin GK Roland output. I played this bass so much the frets finally wore out. That's when I decided to make it a fretless. My name is also inlayed in mother of pearl on the 12th fret. I can see that being an issue if you're name is not Tad but it's also a great story piece. Or you can just say the bass is called Tad. I really love this bass but do not play it live enough anymore. It certainly deserves a more active home and way more performances. Please feel free to contact me with any questions concerning the bass.

    One of the top Basses I've ever owned or played was my Benavente SCB 5 stringer. Chris is one of the best builders in the world and his instruments sound as good as any oput there. Good luck with this beauty as I know whoever gets it will love it.

    I totally agree. Chris knocked it out of the park with this one. Once I went over to the shorter scale Muckelroy's I just don't use it enough.
