    Beautiful Devon Gen 5 Modern with Alder body and highly figured Cocobolo top with matching wooden knobs.

    Body:Chambered Alder

    Top:Bookmatch Cocobolo

    Neck:3-piece maple
    Fretboard:24-fret Pau Ferro with Mother of Pearl block inlays

    Scale:34 inch

    Pickups:Nordstrand DC5

    Preamp:Nordstrand 3b, 18-volt, 3-band with master volume (with push/pull for active/passive), tone, blend, treble and mid (with push/pull for mid-shift switch) and bass

    Bridge:Hipshot A, 19mm

    Tuners:Hipshot Lollipop

    Finish: Poly Gloss, satin on back of neck

    Cover:Magnetically-fastened electronics cover

    Weight:8lbs, 4oz

    It is in very nice condition with minimal signs of wear. No dents or dings that I can see. Frets are in excellent condition and fingerboard is straight with truss rod in fine working order. There is a small amount of discoloration around the G string tuner string peg. Barely noticeable. Light swirling in the gloss.

    Killer bass. Beautiful looks. Superb electronics. Versatile and ergonomically brilliant. The fingerboard has hand carved rolled edges. Have you ever seen a more clean and organized electronics cavity?

    Will ship in brand new Reunion Blues RBX bag case.

    I have another Devon so putting this out there for trade +/- cash. I’d be interested in:
    - G&L L2500 CLF (especially 750)
    - Ken Smith
    - FBass
    - Pre-Gibson Tobias
    - MusicMan HH special
    Maybe something else. Run it by me. You never know.

    Thanks.

    I thought the Brazilian Rosewood top on my D’Mark was as good as it gets…

    but it can’t compare to the Cocobolo top on your Devon. That is a stunning bass! :thumbsup:
