This bass was built in 1990 and was the first 6 string Monarch built. To add to that, I was also the first narrow neck 6 string built (as evidenced by the custom machined bridge). Specs are as follows: *Walnut body with Curly Maple top *3 piece Maple neck with ebony fretboard * neck through construction *Brass nut *Abalone Block inlays *Bartolini Pickups *HAZ preamp *24 frets, 34" scale *Active preamp with bass/treble boost/cut *Weight approx. 9lbs (per bathroom scale) *16mm string spacing The only issue is that the finish is worn on the top side of the upper horn; other than that, there are no other cosmetic or operational issues with this bass. Price has been dropped to $5500.00 shipped or best offer.I am mainly interested in a straight sale, but if you have a Stambaugh, Cliff Bordwell, MTD, Roscoe or Peavey Cirrus I will consider a trade plus cash deal; 5 and 6 string only. Kindly note, I will only entertain trades plus cash; please do not contact me with trade only offers. Please be serious when making an offer.
