This lovely instrument has just been set up by Parkway Music in Clifton Park, NY strung BEAD using Dingwall strings. It is in outstanding condition. I love this bass but I am looking for a 5-string. I am open to trades (+cash) for a fretted or fretless 5-string from: Dingwall (NG2 or Z) Spector (Euro maybe, prefer NS5H2) Roscoe I'm picky, but try me! This comes with a soft case. I will ship via Fedex insured.
