German Hand Made bass guitar In addition to the Vintage 5 for sale, I'm also selling a HotWire FLASH 5 (serial# 2031) Here is the description: Hot Wire developed the "Flash" Bass for players who want the "Jazz" feeling and handling but strive for more modern looks and sound. The smaller headstock outfitted with lighter tuners allows the player to move around faster, and the bass always returns to an ideal playing position. This exceptional bass is equipped with active electronics, routed from the back, and responds easily & accurately, delivering an excellent & powerful sound! This bass was also extensively played by Nashville ledgendary bassist Roy Vogt. The Hot Wire Flash Bass is featured on the track "Rhythm of the Rhyme" on the upcoming Project 814 CD.
