I don't know if I want to let this go yet, but I've been gravitating more and more to my other bass as of late, even after Tom's GTG where most raved about this bass. I'm just wanting to try new things I guess... That said...the specs on the bass are as follows... Body: top and bottom layers of spalted maple, front and back veneers of 1/16 purpleheart, a core of cherry: The core has chambers installed in it to help in keeping the bass light as well as adding to the punch of the bass. The control cover is made pf purpleheart as well. It balances extremely well. Neck: Maple neck with Indian Rosewood fingerboard. 22 medium frets: Matching spalted maple faceplate, side position markers. Slightly asymmetrical c shaped neck: 1-9/16 at the nut, 2-3/8 at the heel. Ebony nut. The finish was hand rubbed...it feels GREAT to play on!! Very effortless moving up and down the neck. Karl's neck on this bass is simply amazing to me. One of the best I've ever owned. Electronics: Kent Armstrong humbuckers, Bartolini NTBT with volume, blend, bass and treble controls. Pickup placement is about ¼ north of standard Fender pickup placement. The Armstrongs will surprise you. The variety of tones is amazing! If you are a fingerstyle player...this is your bass! Slappers...eh...I can't tell you much and I can't slap worth a lick. Any of you guys who slapped this plank at Tom's want to chime in here? Hardware: Hipshot type A bridge in black, Hipshot ultralight y shaped tuning keys in black, black dome knobs, and black panel type jack. Black recessed neck mounting ferrules and black screws. Black Schaller string locks although I don't have them. Pictures of the bass are up at http://www.redletter7.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=12. The bass comes with an almost new Ritter gig bag or a hsc, or both depending on the deal. I'm interested in trying something new...make a trade offer. I'm not really into selling this outright, so please don't ask unless you have cash in hand and are dead set on buying it. Thanks!
