    "The B-Bass is the professional's choice - premium hardware, neck-thru contruction, and incredible sound are all with in your reach with the Hohner B-Bass."

    NOW FOR TRADE.. 5 STRING BASSES ONLY. OFFERS??

    This was one of two 4 stringers I bought this year. I wanted to make a STEALTH ALL BLACK bass with a drop-d function, neck-thru and smaller-body than the basic shape Fender. I already have a BBass V Pro, older and all Mahogany as my main player, so this maker fit the bill.

    This bridge is NOT a knockoff, but the real deal from Steinberger. It is by far the best bridge out there and much easier to use compared to a headstock drop key. FINE TUNING knobs help get perfect intonation. I hate to part with it!

    Intonation and action is excellent. Set-up with A $40.00 set of DR EXTRA LIFE BLACK BEAUTIES, 45-105. I took a marker and gently lined-out the pickup markings. They are single coil EMG passive Jazz pups and sound great with the combo of strings, preamp, and wood selection. They "GROWL like a beast" with the best of 'em.

    Check out the pics. VERY SHINY, but it's raining today and I can't get the best shots. These will do just fine. NO scratches or dings but a very few clear coat lines from polishing too much, lol. NOT NOTICEABLE. No fingernail rash from popping and no buckle rash. Only has about 30 hrs use, at my smoke-free home. Never gigged, only practiced.

    Specs can be found HERE. They seem a 'lil off, (Hardware) but are mostly correct with measurements.

    Had some questions... Here's some answers:
    This model was manufactured in Korea in 2004 at a MSRP of $875.00 USD. It was a blem and sat for all those years w/o a bridge, keys or attention. I bought it, Installed the factory bridge and keys. Could not find the blem. But I waxed it well and found some bubble wrap marks on the rear, which came off easily.
    Trussrod works perfectly in both directions. Tried 3 diff sets of strings. The Black Beauties bring the heavy growl. Adjust the very nice preamp go from a thumpy, early Jack Bruce to a Slappin' fool like Flea.
    With bass at around 6, treb around 4 the bass sounds EXACTLY like Shinedowns bass in "Save Me" I use fingerstyle and still get that tone perfectly. (Turn up the volume!)

    Oh, I'm selling these two 4 bangers in my sig to fund one 5 string.
