1. Framus Star Bass [DEL]$700[/DEL] $650 Shipped Huge bodied (physically and sonically) dual pickup Framus bass. Amazing tone from this bass that gets you so close to double bass territory it's amazing! check the sound clip that is attached if you don't believe me. Used this bass multiple times in recording situations were the real double bass wasn't a viable option. 30" scale length for maximum thump. Strung with d'addario chromes, and they are well broken in. pencil thin laminate neck all the way up and down with very little or no taper. Nut width is 1" & 3/8ths Set up, rewired and frets filled at the Lakland shop. original tuners are long gone, but these work great! Electronics are vol-vol-tone pots. the switches are both on off switches for each pickup. Strung with well played in GHS nickels. Hardshell case that fits the bass perfectly Get the same style bass used by Wyman and the Rolling Stones! I think they are reissuing these now, but you should get the original!
