    I recently purchased this bass after looking for about 3 years. I love it, but I have a chance to endorse a company and they are offering me rock bottom prices on their instruments, so something has got to go.

    This bass is very unique looking. It has BOSSA humbuckers with wood covers. The electronics are very versatile. With the toggle in different positions, you get different coil tapping configurations. It also inclues bass, blend, treble, and mid knobs....AND a +/- trim pot at 850HZ. There are also independent gain knobs for each pickup. There are a few dings on the bass that will not show in a pic and 2 knob tops are missing. I can sell the bass for $900 including a ATA approved road case with recessed handles, or $850 with a gigbag. Thanks for looking, PM me with questions. Here is a more specific rundown of the electronics(thanks JP!!):

    GZP-2
    Master Volume
    Pickup Balancer
    Treble Contro:}17dB at 8KHz
    Middle Control:}12dB at 400Hz
    Bass Contro:}15dB at 90Hz

    Mini trimer
    Notch Filter:|20dB at 850Hz
    R-Pickup Gain
    F-Pickup Gain


    It is the same bass as seen in the movie "Standing in the Shadows of Motown", I actually think it is the exact bass, but it has not been verified.
