    This has been a great bass for me but I would like to see if there is any interest in it. I can only have so much gear at one time! Bought new about a year ago. Lightly gigged with no damage or issues except minor handling wear. Currently stringed with TI flats. Comes with Dingwall gig bag. $3000 shipped. Not looking for trades.

    This has the active/passive option with the Super Fatty pickups. It also has an Aguilar OBP-1 with a Dingwall hybrid treble control for active boost in active mode and passive cut in both active and passive modes. The B is solid as you would expect.

    I don't have a photo of it (can get one for buyers) but it's exactly like this one.

    Tempting, eh? It sure draws a lot of attention when I play live. At first, guys think it's just a regular Geddy. You can tell when they start to figure it out as their heads...turn...sideways. :)

    I had the pleasure of test driving Smallmouth Bass' one last week. They sound and play just as nice!

    Super J's seem to be scarce on the ground, I check several times a day, and I missed the hour this one was for sale.

    I'd be bummed if I could play five stringers.

    You gotta move fast on these!

    Wow, that was fast in this economy.

    A quick note to the new owner. If TI flats aren't your thing we now have prototype Super J strings. Send me an email and I'll comp you a set.

    Sure, they comp the buyer but not the seller. :) Seriously, Sheldon has always been available to answer questions. They put out a great product. Best B string I have ever heard. I went with the TI flats on Sheldon's recommendation and like them.

    I think that picture is of my Super J 5. I got one of the very first made from Ed Roman thinking I'd be the only one to have one
    Don't I feel like a putz

    I think that was the first one from NAAM. Sheldon can clear that up. Mine was the 2nd or 3rd Geddy I think. Here's another photo of the same one in a lineup.

    I'd be interested to know who got the first and how many are out there. I'm pretty sure Ed Roman was claiming he had it. Here's the pic of mine I think I got from his site

    It also came with a black pearl pickguard

    I don't know how many there are but I called Dingwall before I found this one and was told I could have one made for me.

    There's a natural/ rosewood one here at Jive Sound in Alexandria. It's freaking awesome.

    You shouldn't feel like a putz. You should feel like the owner of one of the most badass basses in existence.
