    Okay, this is the latest bass preamp from Fender. Sounds great, very vintage type tone.

    Details:

    It has a very vintage type tone. Top end is pretty mellow, bottom end is really big, but pretty controllable. The mids are what make this thing sound so great. They're very very smooth.

    To be honest, I love the tone and I love the features of this amp, but I'm only using it as part of my live rig and I've decided to go for the ultra-simplicity that is the Avalon U5 in its place. So, basically this thing won't be getting anymore use.

    Currently these things sell on music123.com for $460-$600 (they sell non-packaged and returned models for cheaper, but new they sell for $600). Asking $420 (which includes shipping) or will trade straight across for an Avalon U5.

    Included is the 4-button footswitch, footswitch carrying bag and power cable. This thing is in "like-new" condition.

    email me here on talkbass, or at edge_q5@yahoo.com
    Thanks!
