    5 String BSX Removable Neck Bass.
    Setup is great but the original electronics and bridge were taken out and a regular bridge set up for a Fishman Full Circle was installed. I also wanted a longer string length, so the bridge is set a bit lower; It can be moved wherever you'd like. I had a Fdeck for the FC and a Biesele magnetic pickup mixed together with an Audere pre. It was ok but I never got it right.
    The fingerboard and bridge are great, set up by NY'S finest. I love it for practicing and wish I had it when I was younger. Ended up with an Eminence, still a compromise, but closer.
    Original bridge, electronics included for the tinkerers. I paid $1000 for the bass and $1500 for the setup. Comes with a soft case that has been fixed once and has a small rip.
    $600 or best offer plus a bit of shipping as it's pretty heavy.

    One could install a bridge wing pickup and play this as-is?

    If yes, is there a downside to doing that?

    Sure, or as I said, it's set up for a Full Circle. Downside is that like pretty much all EUB's, they kind of sound like a giant fretless. As you're relatively close, you're welcome to check it out. Thanks.
