Alder body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, Seymour Duncan Antiquity II pickups, stacked volume/tone controls and a series/parallel switch, all passive. The tone is LARGE, especially with the series wiring engaged. With flats it sounds enormous. The low end is truely unmatched among the 20+ basses I've owned. Your choice of La Bella flats or DR Lowriders. I bought this bass from SMASH a couple years ago. He did all the wiring work on it. If you have the TalkBass CD, this bass was used to record "Star Weekly". Since that recording the stacked tone controls and lightweight tuners were added. The tone really hasn't changed. The bass weights about 9 lbs. The color is Inca Silver which has been discontinued. The photos miss a slight green, almost reptilian shade that compliments the silver well. It also has a custom pickguard that looks black in the pictures but is actually "smoked" transparent. The overall condition of the bass is excellent. It plays well, sounds great and looks cool. I'm looking for something with a better slap sound. This bass does what it does really well so I hate to mess with it. I highly recommend it for anything where slap and pop is not needed. It has some growl but is mainly set up for a big old school tone - lots of lows and low mids and much deeper sounding than my P-basses. The pickups can give lots of bite and crunch but are not "glassy" at all. I've enjoyed playing it but am playing more funk now now and need something a bit more refined. I'll offer the Hipshot lightweight tuners and matching detuner as an option since I can use them on another bass. Price is $600 with the original tuners, and $700 with the lightweights and detuner. Reinstalling the original tuners completely conceals the tiny holes (one per tuner) that were added to secure the lightweights. Trades I'd consider are 4-string basses (must have a bridge pickup, prefer natural or sunburst). I can throw in some cash for the right bass.
