    Condition:
    Mint condition... 9.9/10. It's basically brand new, barely used. (I played one acoustic gig with it the day it arrived, plus a little play at home.) I will stop short of describing it as showroom new condition due to a few swirls/minor surface scratches near the volume and tone knobs... tried to get pics. Also, on the back of the neck, there is an unfeelable (?) line that I believe is a factory blemish but I'm not 100% sure... it's shown in one of the pics. Other than these very picky details, it's literally perfect in every way!!!
    Gig bag is also mint. All original case candy included. (Disclaimer... I find these Godin gig bags to be a little on the cheap side.)

    Weight: 9lbs 11oz on my home postal scale.
    Shipping: 18lbs 1oz from 79423 well packed in original box (already ready to go), which measures 6" x 17" x 51".

    Good reference links if you are unfamiliar with this bass...

    Why I'm selling: I bought a Godin Shifter 4 and loved it so much I bought this 5. I want to play a 5 (I'm a fairly new player) but am not sure this is the one for me. I think I want a Jazz instead. I'm keeping my Shifter 4 because it has monster passive tone and flexibility... love it. Neck is narrow like a Jazz but more rounded like a P-bass. The 4 feels like a tele neck.

    This is my first time selling on TalkBass, but I sell lots of stuff on feebay under the same user name. I want to make sure my first transaction goes well, so I'm trying to be overly cautious with description and blemishes. Believe me, you will not be dissapointed with the condition of this instrument. Please ask questions.
     
  2. I wish I liked black basses :-/ The pickups look pretty awesome
     
  3. Are they made by Godin or can I just go and buy those things somewhere?
     
  4. Bump for a great Canadian bass.

    That's a very cool looking bass! If I had not just spent a bunch of money on band equipment, I might take a shot at it.
     
  8. Any trades for other 5s?

    Did you ever give a weight on this beauty? I'm still considering it. I traded my cab, and may have a buyer for my trade bass.

    Last chance - today only. If it doesn't sell today, I'm keeping it.

    I decided to break this out of the box today and play it with my new GK cab. I think I'll keep it after all if it doesn't sell. Really awesome passive jazz sound. Not blowing smoke, so holler if you want it.
