    I have a KSD proto-j 5 string that is not getting any love and I need to move some gear to pay some bills so this one is the least played out of all my basses.

    Everybody should know the deets about this bass but for those that don't here we go.

    35" scale
    Ash body
    bound maple neck and fretboard
    pearl block inlays
    10 lbs
    Audere JZ5D preamp
    stock single coil pickups
    copper shielded pickup cavities

    The Audere upgrade added a lot of versatility to this bass. It can from very bright and modern to very deep and vintage. Three band eq with the 5 Z-mode switch and you can be in tonal bliss. This bass has some player wear because I am about the fourth owner. The pickguard has some wear from fingernails and there is two small dings on the neck that were hard to photograph but I hope you can see them. Asking for $600 shipped with a gig bag that fits this bass because most gig bags and cases don't fit due to the long headstock. Shipping limited to the continental US and I do take Paypal.

    I have the same bass with the Audere up-grade and it just makes it come to life!

    Nice deal to be had here! :smug:
     
  6. I'd totally buy this from you if someone would just buy my Tobias. I bet that bass slaps like a monster!!!:bassist:
     
  7. How's the B string?

    I never had any problems with the B string. Sounds solid and the low notes were never muddy. This bass was always a solid player but with what I am playing nowadays she was not getting a lot of gig time. I am bacically going to convert my Lakland into my jazz bass with big singles and an Aggie OBP-3.

    I tried these at NAMM and they play very easy and sound great.

    This is a good price for this bass and is tempting to me.:bag:

    Not at this point in time. I need the cash for bills and GAS. Just wondering why this has not left my hands yet? :smug:
