    I may regret this.

    Going to put up my love, a Groove Shoppe GS5! One bass to rule them all. It will ship with a mono gig bag. Just weighed on bathroom scale. 9.5lbs

    Designed by Mike Tobias and built by New York Bass Works. It does not get better than that! This one has a very unique one piece walnut body, maple neck and pau ferro fretboard. It is all topped off with Nordstrand Big Singles and a killer Glockenklang 3 band preamp. In passive mode this bass does not lose any volume and it sounds awesome. This bass totally kills that ultra modern jazz bass tone!

    That's a beautiful hunk of walnut. I bet it brings some nice, solid lows. :cool:

    Cuts really nice with great presence. Had a guitar player once tell me my bass made his guitar sound weak. Told him to quit using smiley face EQ. LOL

    The last one made. That was an amazing instrument. They were all amazing basses but this was the most ornate of them.

    It’s as good as anything out there — an exceptional value at that price.
