    2011 Yamaha TRBJP2 John Pattitucci signature 6 string bass in amber with professionally installed East U Retro onboard preamp and Roland GK3B 13 pin synthesizer pickup. Mint, as new condition, with no issues whatsoever. I am the original owner and I am only selling because I now have an F bass BN6 with a GK3B, in addition to some other high end 6 strings with a similar tonal palate. I used this bass with the GR20, GR55 and VB-99 and it tracks quite well. The GK3B is attached with double sided tape and can be removed without any damage to the bass. The addition of the East preamp provides considerable tonal flexibility beyond the sounds typically associated with these basses. When the preamp was installed, I had my tech re-shield the entire cavity. I will include the original Yamaha internal preamp along with the Yamaha hard shell case and all original case candy. Weight is approximately 11 lbs. Here are the specs as I'm aware of them:

    • Construction: Bolt-on
    • Scale Length: 35" (889mm)
    • Fingerboard: Ebony
    • Radius: 40" (1000mm)
    • Frets: 26
    • Body: Figured Maple/Ash/Alder/Maple
    • Neck: Maple
    • Bridge: Solid Brass
    • Pickups: Alinco V design dual coil
    • Controls: Volume, Blend, Passive tone (pull: passive), Mid boost & cut/Mid frequency (stacked), Bass boost /Treble boost and cut (stacked) (pull: bright)
    For information on the East U Retro: http://www.east-uk.com/
    For information on the GK3B: http://www.roland.com/products/en/GK-3B/

    Price is $2200 shipped and insured, via Fed Ex, to anywhere in the continental US. If the GK3B isn't desired, I'll remove it and discount the bass $100. Shipping to AK, HI, or Canada is a possibility, but please contact me for rates. Sorry, no other foreign transactions. Paypal accepted. I am considering a few trades below and would be willing to do gear + cash either way, but please, nothing else if it's not included on this list. I have more gear than I know what to do with and absolutely have to clear some stuff out.

    I'll be available to answer any questions and/or ship immediately until 3/14/13 when I'm having some fairly major surgery. As a consequence, it's unlikely that I'll be able to ship or even correspond much from 3/14/13 through 3/28/13 or so, but I'll do my best to respond to any inquiries just as soon as I can. Thanks for understanding.
