    I bought this bass for when I subbed for my friend's band several years ago. I am primarily a guitar player and I have barely played this bass in the last couple years, so I am putting it up or sale.

    It is in excellent condition with only minor wear and tear. No major dents, dings, or scratches to note. There is a crack in the corner of the case (as pictured). Everything works like it should.

    Comes with case candy pictured and extra pickguard.

    Price is $1,650 shipped and PayPal'd. No trades please.

    Album full of pics (please excuse the dog fur on the sheet): Music Man Big Al 5-SSS

    I haven’t been tempted to make a purchase in quite a while. This is indeed tempting.

    I'd say this is a rather rare bird, perhaps a future unicorn.
  7. I remembered this Bass Central demo of the Big Al SSS when the model debuted. An amazing variety of tones is available to an owner!
