    I'm selling a 5-string, right-handed custom bass by luthier Jacques Simoneau, of Lutherie MF in Montreal, who've made several basses for Alain Caron and most other top bass players from the area.
    It is an excellent bass, and I love its comfort and playability. But I've decided to look for a different sound.

    Very ergonomic, balanced and comfortable.
    The body is unfinished alder (oiled). It is a neckthrough. Tuners and bridge are Gotoh. (The bridge can adjust in width for string-spacing.)
    The PUs are active EMGs and it has a parametric active mid control.
    The controls are : Volume, balance, bass, mid (active), trebble. And there's one unconnected pot, where Simoneau had planned to add something he didn't after all. So you could add a switch or something, w/o having to route an extra cavity.

    Please PM or email me if you're interested or have any question.

    Forgot to add the price : I'm looking to get 1,200$ CAD. (That's about 900$ USD.)
    (That bass cost 2,500$ CAD new, or 1,900$ USD, and it is in mint condition.)
