    Up for sale is a Renaissance 5 fretless that was custom made for me.

    I grew up reading Rick Turner's column in Bass Player, and was honored to meet him in person at the Winter NAMM Show. Our conversation led to Rick Turner building me this my amazing custom bass. Unfortunately, between work and other responsibilities this bass doesn't get played - and it deserves to be with someone who will make great music with it!

    This bass that has all of the same specs & measurements as the standard Ren 5, but adds the following:

    • AAAAA Flamed Koa Back and Sides
    • Matching Koa Headstock Overlay on Headstock Face
    • 5-Layer Bocote & Maple Overlay on Headstock Back
    • Body Edged with Rope Purfling Inlay
    • Gold Hipshot Ultralite Tuners
    • Mother of Pearl Truss Rod Cover
    • Gold Straplocs

    In addition to the long list of custom features, I also had a custom case made for the bass by Modern Case. As you can see from the pictures below, it offers great protection, a form-fitted interior, and loads of storage space. All of that, and it's lighter than a standard hardshell case!

    This bass also comes with the Turner Dingus, and a custom leather strap.

    This custom bass and case would cost almost $3500 new, but I am selling both for only [del]$1699[/del] $1599!!
