    I love this bass, it has a fast and comfortable neck. Demeter preamp is real nice but with that said its not quite for me. I've always played p basses and although I want something "boutique" like I'd rather have a boutique Pbass (working on that).

    Weeks82 put together the for sale mumbo jumbo better than I so I will paste it here and include a link to his thread with more pics.

    The bass was handmade by Brian Ristola in NH. It features a Burled maple top, alder body with a classy black accent line. It has a bolt on 5 peice maple/wenge neck. Pickups are Bartolini x5's and the preamp is the Demeter 3-band with mid switch. String spacing at the bridge is 17.5 and the weight of the bass is 9.5

    The bass is in 9.5 out of 10 condition with a slight scuffing on the upper horn. Comes with a hardshell case.

    Price is $1400.00 shipped.
    I am accepting trade offers. I love trying new basses.

    Must be a 5 string and I'm not really into maple fretboards.

    After further review I had a Burner 4 back in the day that was stolen from me. For a KS I'd have to venture into the neck through realm.

    thanks.

    I'll be sorry when its gone but its STILL AVAILABLE.

    As far as the trades I'm looking for 5 strings. No maple fretboards, no fretless. Equal or lesser value+cash is okay.

    thanks.
