    OK. Now that I've got my Stambaugh and my backup blue Jazz, I don't really need this anymore, so I'm thinking about letting her go:

    So here's the deal with this bass. This is my (for those that know me) "famous" light 5 string. The body is extra-light swamp ash that was special ordered from Warmoth. The body came in a 3lbs, 6oz. The whole bass weighs less than 7 lbs. It's based off the smaller Jazz Bass Plus body size, and with a smaller neck than most 5 string basses.

    Specs are as follows:

    Tuners: Hipshot Ultralite

    Neck: Douglas Fir with threaded metal insert neck bolts

    Nut width: 1.7", heel 2.75"

    Fingerboard: rosewood

    Fretsize: Dunlop 6230 (the smaller vintage Fender size)

    Electronics: 2 Dingwall FD-3 individually humcancelling, split design (ala P-Bass)

    Controls: Neck Vol, Bridge Vol, tone. Each volume is a pull-pot that when pulled up puts that pickup in series mode.

    GK-2B pickup: this drives the Roland V-Bass. There is a separate jack for the GK cable next to the 1/4" jack.

    Bridge: Hipshot type A

    Also has Dunlop recessed straplocks.

    This is a great bass that I have around $1500 in parts alone. I know I'm not gonna get anything close to that, but I'm also not hard up for cash. I just don't like instruments sitting around being unused.

    So basically, I'm throwing a line in the water to see if there are any bites....

    Oh, BTW at the moment it is strung up as a piccolo. I did not modify the nut for this, so it is easily put back in normal tuning.

    Feel free to ask any questions.

    Hey Marcus, is this the bass in your "piccolo bass" sound clip? If so, is that clip with the Dingwall pickups? I'm really interested in these pickups. PM me if you need.

    Oh, and bump.

    No, that's my old piccolo from a few years back. Don't actually even remember what pups I had in that bass, but I remember they weren't anything unusual.
