Mint condition Hand made German 5 string bass I currently have the HotWire Vintage 5 used on the soon to be released Project 814 CD available for sale (US only - sorry). Here is the description: The Hot Wire Vintage Bass is a workhorse for bass players who like the looks, the feeling and the handling of those famous and sought-after Jazz bass models of the sixties. Hot Wire has kept the best parts the slim neck, the light body, the thin finish that feels so great to the touch and the incredible sound. The are some small improvements to the original design: They added one fret so you can reach the high E on the G-String, the pickups are handmade and low noise yet still have that great funky sound. All that for a fraction of the cost of an original! This Hot WireVintage 5 Bass (serial #2035) is featured on the track "Part of Me" for the new upcoming Project 814 CD. This bass was also extensively played by ledgendary Nashville bassist Roy Vogt.
