    Picked this up in a trade from TBer Basso Profoundo back in April. Lovely bass. Brilliantly well made and exceptionally versatile, but I'm primarily a fretless player. Between focusing on fretless and dealing with some medical issues, this bass is just sitting in it's case, so I'm putting it up for sale or trade.

    Features:
    5 String Fretted
    Custom Contoured Swamp Ash Body
    3 piece Hard Rock Maple Neck
    Rosewood Fingerboard
    Glockenklang active/passive 3 Band Electronics
    2 Delano Humbucking Pickups
    Single-coil switch
    6-bolt High Tension Neck Joint System
    Recessed lo-profile tuning machines
    Graphite Nut w/Zero Fret
    Scale Length: 34"
    Nut width: 45 mm
    Dual Action 2 Way Truss Rod
    3-way adjustable bridge (currently set at 19mm)
    Medium Jumbo Nickel Silver Frets
    Finish: Transparent Black

    Asking [DEL]$1200.00[/DEL] $1150 shipped to the lower 48 in a Wolfpack Polyfoam case.

    Here is the Ed Friedland review on YouTube



    Cash sale is preferred, but I'm back to keeping the option of trades open, particularly if it's something more mainstream that I could flip if the need arose.

    Thanks!

    More pics. All of these are from Basso Profoundo's original ad. The bass has never left my practice room and is in exactly the same pristine condition as when I received it.

    These are really cool basses that sound fantastic and are well built. Love the preamp and pickups on these things.

    This was mine at one point. Great bass! If I had some free cash, I'd buy it back!

    And this from a man who knows a sweet bass. I mean, have you seen that Stambaugh? Someday I hope to own another of Chris's fine basses.

    In the meantime, bump.

    Lot's of bumps today. Used to be mine also. Pics are from my basement. I still have a sunburst one. If you only need one bass to do it all, this is in the running...

    Bumping this again after some time off while the bass was in the shop. I'd noticed a bit of a hum and upon checking out the control cavity my tech found a bunch of dodgy soldering, including an output jack wired so the battery was constantly draining. Everything has now been corrected per wiring diagrams from Glockenklang and Delano, so I'm comfortable bumping it again.

    - thanks

    Bump. Threw a set of Chromes on the bass just for something different. Deliciously meaty.

    Pre-Halloween bump!
     
  16. I own one of these, been playing it every Sunday the past three months since I got back into the States. I leave it at church, practice on the MTD535 at home. Sunday morning, pull out the BaseX oc5 - MONEY!

    Hey, I have a Bassmods K6 bass with upgrades (Bartolini quad coil, Bartolini preamp and Hipshot bridge). I need a 4 or 5 string for my next gig. I was wondering if you would be interested in trade.
