    Price:
    2000.
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    New Mexico
    I have had this Prat for a couple of years, it is a masterpiece. Never played it outside of my 'music room'. Like all the Prat's I've had, it is tight, the neck is rock solid, the frets feel unplayed, the wood on this thing feels so smooth and stable, it feels like it will last forever. I love the tone, and it plays like butter, seriously. I think the original owner lined up a great build. I know it was made in 2012, and it sounds and plays too good to sit in it's original flight case, it's time for me to put it back out there... This is a $2500 Prat all day, may not be the right time for it, but I need to sell it, so I'm dropping the price to $2000. Will still split shipping in it's original flight case.

    Model: Prat Single Cut 5 String Custom

    Color: Natural Zircote Grain

    Body: Mahogony with Maple Veneers and Zircote Top and Back

    Any idea what that string spacing equates to in millimeters?

    Alanhasradar, I'm sorry, I missed your question... 10.3mm at nut and 18.2 at bridge. But it's adjustable at bridge...

    That is a great question that I do not know... It feels so smooth and bare, but I'm sure he used something to protect it... I wish I could tell you, I will look up the original build post and see if I can find anything...

    I also checked his website and didn't see anything. Looks like some oil/varnish maybe.

    Down to $2100, not a sign of the Bass's value, this bass is tight...

    I owned a similar Prat. Should have never sold it. GLWTS.

    What is the tightest string spacing you can achieve with the adjustable bridge?
