    same wood,bolt on:
    -5 parts flamed maple neck,with ebony fingerboards and 24
    frets,

    16mm at the 24th fret,Shaller strap-locks.
    -2 dual-coils Bartollini pick-up,with active Seymour-Duncan
    preamp: volume(with push/pull slap-tone),3 eq. boost/cut
    with 2 trim-pots inside electronic:main-gain,boost/cut for
    curves medium on slap-tone mode.
    baught new on custom order:almost 3000$,sale for:2100$
    realy tough tone with warms of the Bartollini,and at last: oval-
    flat profile neck,very fast and fun to play,
    particularities from this neck building: never play a fretboard
    with stings in such low action without any buzz when fretting!!!:eek:
    if i sell or trade it: my poor big fingers are busted into the 16
    mm spacing stings,and i'm an "incorrigible" pop'n'slaper!:meh:

    fretboard radius, width of the fb at the nut and the 24th, weight?
     
  4. Gawd -

    You're in France! What's the shipping over to the land the Franks hate :)

    Since I'm Polish, I've LOVE to find out what this plays like!! Frets look REALLY low...almost fretless. Can you comment on that?

    Also, who's the luthier, and what scale (34 or 35 inches)?

    Thanks!!

    Bump for a hot bass. If I had some spare cash this would be mine. I hope it sells soon. I can't keep looking at this one.

    :) there it is now!
    at first sorry to be late,and thanx you all to have posting,
    i'm doing to try to answer the best as i can for all request:bag:
    G.M.R. are the initials of 3 guys in Poland,who make a great job for any kind of basses:4,5,6 strings,bolt-on or neck-thru,
    single-cut,etc.....with Shaller tuning-machines,ETS bridges (not for mine:bawl: )and any pickups and electronics on order.
    their workshop is at Gniewkowo,and if you need more infos about their work,or order, here is emails:gmr@gmr.com.pl or
    www.gmrbasses.com
    actualy,there is 3 models:the Bassforce(like mine),the Tribal(s.c.) and....oooooops sorry i forget the name of the third!:eyebrow:
    this one has a 34'' scale (but any scales is avaible on order),
    for the fretboard radius,hmmmm i don't have a precise numeric
    number,but i can say a big one but not totally flat:a little more rounder than a Warwick by exemple,but flatter than a "F"
    bass.
    on this 6 strings,the width at nut is:54mm or 2.12''
    and at the 24th fret:92mm or 3.62''
    at the bridge from B to C:97mm or 3.81''
    and the space between each external strings above the neck-
    pickupare from 16mm or 0.62''(B,E,A strings) to 17mm or 0.66''(D,G,C strings)
    i don't own a weigth-machine,but i can certifiate that's pretty
    heavy! (thin flamed maple top,with thick mahogany woods)
    and for T.B.Player:it's medium frets,no jumbo maybe it's why
    they are looking low!
    anyway,if you need some others infos,please don't hesitate to
    ask to me,i'll be promptly to answer!:smug:
    thank you all again: jzucker,T.B.Player,interp, i hope you have
    the good answers you needed, and for the fun with Robear22,
    Mrdak and Cricketfever32!;)
