    UPDATE 6/28/2017-

    I was asked to verify the string spacing at the bridge.

    It is NOT 19 mm as advertised!

    The easily adjustable bridge allows for a range of approximately 17.5 to 18.5 mm string spacing (center to center).
    --------------------------------------------

    I told myself I wasn't going to do this! However, the reality is I don't regularly play 6s, and this is *way* too nice to sit unused.

    TRADED - Prat 6 String *** 8 lbs 5 oz. NAMM bass. Make Offer

    Gorgeous and light as you can see. Plays and sounds fantastic too!! Super versatile with coil taps (single/parallel/series on each).

    I traded a sweet custom Roscoe 6 (too heavy for me) for this one and felt like I won the lottery.

    I probably have about $2400 in trades invested. My loss = your gain.

    Huge temporary price drop! $1500!!

    I will ship on buyer's dime.

    updated trade interests +/- $:

    Dingwall Super Series basses
    Ric 4003SW
    Nice medium scale basses
    Gibson ES335/339 or a quality copy
    Gibson Les Paul or quality copy
    Perhaps a nice Fender Tele or Strat
    High end tube preamps
    Small light power amps
    Quilter Bass Block
    Genzler Magellan 800
    Mesa Subway D800

    PM with questions or offers.

    Prat basses are great, i had a chance to play one and if this one was 5 string we would be talking.
    Good luck with sale.

    Thanks. It's fantastic in every way. If it was a 5, it wouldn't be going anywhere!

    WOW! This thing is still here! If I didn't have a Prat 6'r, I'd be all over this. Something about a sub 9lb 6 string that just brings you an uncontrollable joy!

    Still here, but not sure why?

    Perhaps not enough folks have had the pleasure of experiencing Oscar's basses. Absolutely top shelf! This is going to make someone very happy!!

    I'm only selling to standardize on Dingwall "medium-scale" or mono-scale instruments ~ 32 to 33 inch scale.
