    If you're in the market for a budget-priced, good-quality bass - here is your newest consideration:

    Up for sale is my Traben Chaos Attack 5-string in "Whiskey Burl". I purchased this back in August of 2009, and it has recieved very light use at best, as it has been my Bb-tuned practice bass only.

    Cosmetically, it is a 9.5/10 - when in all actuality, I can't really find anything wrong with it at all. I'm rating it at 9.5 to simply reflect the fact that it isn't new.

    I have updated this bass with an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp at 18V, complete with mid-frequency selector switch.

    This bass is extremely loud and punchy - likely due to the OBP. Multiple usable tones, great B string, and super sustain - the 5-way selector switch really provides several distinctly different voicings.

    Here are the specs directly from the Traben site:

    BRIDGE chaos internal bridge
    SCALE 35"
    CONSTRUCTION bolt on
    PICKUPS two rockfield® humbuckers
    ELECTRONICS (now OBP-3 with mid-frequency switch)
    CONTROLS three-band eq with volume and five-way switch
    BODY royal paulonia
    TOP burled maple
    FRETBOARD rosewood
    NUT synthetic

    String spacing at the bridge is 19mm. Weight is approximately 8.8lbs according to the 'throom scale.

    I am including a beat-up, but serviceable non-original HSC.

    Asking $300 - For Sale ONLY - not interested in ANY trades of any kind, thx. (need $$!!)

    I vouch for Traben's being great basses- once they are set up they play like butter, AND a UNBELIEVEABLE PRICE! Someone should definitely snatch this up.
