Bolin NS Five, curly maple top, EMG/piezos

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by Giraffe, Jul 26, 2004.

  1. I am downsizing, so I have decided to sell this Bolin NS Bass five string. This bass is in excellent+ condition. The neck and frets are mint, and except for a 1" by 1/2" shiny spot on the top (on an otherwise satin finish) it is mint. The bass has a remarkable range of tones due to the combination of a double coil EMG pickup mounted in the harmonic sweet spot, top shelf Fishman piezo bridge pickups, and a well-designed preamp. Visit Bolinguitars.com for more details (and clearer pictures). It was reviewed in the February 2002 issue of Bass Player magazine.

    Alder body
    Carved curly maple top
    Maple bolt-on neck
    Ebony fingerboard
    One active low impedance dual coil EMG pickup
    Fishman piezo bridge, fully adjustable
    Eighteen volt EMG BQC preamp
    Volume, bass+/-, treble +/-, mid freq, and mid +/- for the EMG
    Volume and passive tone for the piezo
    Bass boost, individual volumes, and a global volume control inside the control cavity for the piezos
    Original hard shell case

    I will sell this bass for $1,500 plus shipping. I am not looking for a trade, but if you had an R Bass, or a wonderful head and some cash, or maybe something else, I might be tempted!
