    SOLD!

    Eshenbaugh 4 string bass guitar. Mark Eshenbaugh makes very high end basses, having worked for Carl Thompson and has a very distinct style that he makes. Eshenbaugh preamp and pickups, vol/vol and 3 band eq and preamp bypass switch, 36" scale. This bass is missing the trussrod cover but other than that it is a great playing and sounding bass. Weighs 8lbs 4 oz, balances great. Neck is like a jazz, pretty thin and easy to play. This bass also comes with a brand new Fodera hard case for a long scale instrument. I bought the case for a Fodera that was freakin over 3 inches thick and it didn't fit, so when I got the eshenbaugh it seemed like a great fit. 900 shipped.

    I really wish I knew what the body wood was made out of, if you have any ideas how I can check let me know. But I don't know of any way to tell.

    I believe the body wood is rare Silver Wood, from South America.

    36" is pretty weird. Actually it's not really, I don't notice THAT much of a difference. The huge difference for me is string bending, I like to bend half steps and it's tough. But I can't really bend like I want to on a 35" scale either, so personally all I deal with are 34" scale 5ers with DR 40-120. Anything else and my wussy little fingers can't deal ;) The tone on it is very nice though, very punchy as you would probably imagine.

    And yeah, it's the very rare Silver Wood, straight from the basement of the Underwear Gnomes ;)
