This is a great 5 string bass for the money. I bought it as a backup, but found it to perform just as well as my bass worth twice as much. It has EMG active pickups, flame maple top, Grover tuners, neck-through design, abalone inlays at the 12th fret and headstock, and is well-balanced and easy to play. Comes with gig bag and strap. $475 shipped.
