    Here’s a rare bird! I played one years and years ago and couldn’t get my mind off it until I bought this baddie last year. It rules. Specs below - some plagiarized from a recent sale thread :bassist: may my college professors forgive me.

    No low ball offers - I don’t need the money. Just moving 2 basses I don’t play as much.

    ONLY trades: Fender Sean Hurley in charcoal metallic frost or maybe a pino. Nothing else. Seriously.

    • Super resonant, easy to play, low action! And weighs a cool 8.58 lbs
    • I love the neck. Jazz width, with what feels like a little extra depth/heft. Super super comfy!
      Quarter-sawn maple with 1.5" nut and 9.5" radius.
    • Amazing tones from custom-wound Seymour Duncan pickup.
      (goes from thump to grind with a turn of the tone control).
    • Rear-routed control cavity for a clean, no-pickguard look.
    • To each his own, but in my experience, the reverse headstock is both aesthetic and also maximizes tension at E string which to my ear leads to deeper/tighter lows and sweeter, less brittle highs.
    • Relic job looks amazing but please note! I’ve played this out and there’s some extra wear on the back. I think the pictures should help you discern the spots - there’s a big relic wear spot, then below it the new wear. Nothing new anywhere else on the bass.

    • I’ve also added a relic’d pickup cover, and also had a guy make a wood thumbrest for this bass. Pictures with both looks! I love the cover. Fits the vibe well!

    • Comes with OHSC and all case candy.

    I should mention that this will come with both rounds (D'Addario NYXLs, currently on the bass) and chromes! The Chromes were fantastic, and sat on the bass for only about a month. I thought the bass demanded rock, so the rounds went on next.
