    The bass is in very good playing shape with a nice straight neck, comfortably low string height, and solid intonation. There are a few minor scratches on the body of the bass and some light swirling in areas. There’s also one very small nick on the on the bottom of the bass and some small dings on the top of the headstock. Overall the bass is in very good condition and sounds incredible.

    Asking $1500 shipped fully insured to Con US only.

    Open to reasonable offers

    Open to trades for 4 or 5 string basses +/- cash in either direction for the right trade. I’m mainly looking for brands like; F Bass, Warwick, Valenti, Lakland, Dingwall, G. Gould, EBMM, Fender, etc… but feel free to let me know what you have.

    Let me know if you have any questions

    My friends call me Big Al so you could say this bass has my name on it but I like my fivers. GLWTS on this cool rare bird.

    I have one of these in black. Same P/U configuration. My opinion is this is a desert island bass. It can do just about anything you would ever need, and a very sexy bass to boot. To compliment my Big Al, I just purchased the Albert Lee HH guitar in the same sunburst color as this fine instrument here. GLWTS.
