    Ernie Ball Music Man Big Al 4 SSS

    Please note reduced price!


    Bass was purchased in 2010 from Bass Central. I am the second owner. Very clean condition, with only the normal wear markings from 7 or 8 years of light usage. This is a remarkably versatile bass, because you can select the pickups in any combination with either active or passive mode.

    I don't see many of these for sale right now. It's a cool bass - great playing and sounding.

    Specs:
    • Finish: Vintage Sunburst, with shell pickguard and chrome hardware.
    • Body: ash
    • Neck: Maple with RW fingerboard
    • Scale: 34"
    • Frets: 22
    • Nut: 1.5 inches
    • Headstock: sunburst, matching body
    • Tuners: Schaller BM - placed in the 3+1 design.
    • Bridge: Typical Music Man
    • Pickups: 3x Original Music Man USA single coils with Neodymium magnets
    • Electronics: 3 x 2-way push button pickup selector, 2-way push button active/passive selector, 4-band EQ – 25kohm volume, treble, high-mid, low-mid, bass.
    • Original hard shell case
    No trades please, but I will entertain reasonable offers. Price includes shipping in the Continental U.S.

    I hope Sterling Ball is paying attention to the prices on used Big Als.

    I was not the original purchaser. But the bass was purchased from BC in 2010. The bill of sale is in the case.

    I had the bass set up when I first got it (about 4 years ago), but have not had to adjust the action since. It's set up with a nice, moderate action - approximately according to factory specs.

    I'm guessing that these were quite expensive to manufacture, especially if you compare them to the new, passive models.
