    This bass is the nicest thing I've ever own. Tone is unreal. My baby hands just can't get used to the 19mm spacing. It's actually pretty heartbreaking. So, up for trade. Gimme your best offers. I'm just copy and pasting the info here from the original thread where I acquired this bass from a few months back. Has a few small marks here and there and some minor marking on the back maple block

    MLP King Single Cut 5 string neck through
    figured cherry top
    matching headstock
    walnut body
    maple tone block
    flamed maple neck
    indian rosewood fingerboard
    Aguilar AG 5J-70 pickups in matching cherry/maple/walnut cases
    Zolkow preamp (with selectable center frequencies)
    3 band eq with passive tone control
    wood knobs
    Hipshot ultralite tuners
    34.75" scale
    19mm spacing
    weight very close to 9 lbs
    hard shell case in excellent condition

    Biggest ISO is a Roscoe, but hit me with any offers of any variety, including bass + cash. No 19mm will be considered unless it's 34scale! Please include scale and spacing in any offers.

    Do you have a cash only price in mind?

    With regards to 19mm - I thought MLP bridges were adjustable to narrow the spacing?

    Not really...I suppose I'd accept offers, but it'd have to be enough for me to immediately buy another similar in quality bass.

    It is, but the neck itself is still wide for my hands. It's manageable, but it's not perfect feel, yanno? If i'm going to have this nice an instrument, I dont want to have any qualms about it.

    I should edit to reinforce that I only am looking for 5strings, and that there is little chance I want another jazz bass.

    bump for trade that fell through.

    hit me with your Roscoes!

    will take cash offers, but only enough cash for me to grip a Roscoe on here.

    I have Century Standard + that I had modified by Roscoe with Bart Classics and all black hardware. Incredibly well set up and plays well. I think the spacing is 18.5 but I will verify. It is the black onyx. Has black beauties on it. also ImageUploadedByTalkBass1398290156.321335.
