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!
