    Bought this recently from Edo Castro.

    Recently Pleked by Gary Brawer.

    Mid-switch, passive active switch. 3 band EQ. Balance knob, series/parallel switch.
    A broad palate of sounds. One dent on body. Neck is pristine.

    Happy to sell it with a case. I have a range of cases from Access to cheaper.

    String spacing and scale? And any other details you'd care to add.

    Sorry for the lack of deets. 17mm at bridge, 34" 24 frets. 9 volts. 10 pounds. Utera-built wood pup covers and ramp. Not a neck diver.
    Mid-switch, passive active switch. 3 band EQ. Balance knob, series/parallel switch.
    A broad palate of sounds. Not a scratch on it. Happy to sell it with a case. I have a range of cases from Access to cheaper.

    What's the electronic package on this bass? I mean pickup and preamp.

    It's the Aguilar OBP-3 and Nordstrand double humbucking under the two wood covers, Nordstrand himself couldn't specify which one.
    The controls are volume, pickup balance, bass mid treble, three way switches for each pickup (series, parallel, single coil) and a two position midrange switch.

    I'd guess between 16 and 20. Definitely not flat nor exaggeratedly curved.
