This is a Skyline 5501 that was professionally modified with Nordstrand Big Splits pickups and a Noll three band + passive tone 18v preamp. Under 9 lb and nicely balanced on a strap.There is a chip in between the knobs (shown in the pics) and a little surface scratching here and there but it's in great shape. The Noll is a nice option as it gives you the ability to roll off the tone and boost treble at 4k like the Sadowsky preamp. Great playing and sounding bass. I bought this and a Roscoe Century Standard in the same week and have decided to keep the Roscoe. However, it was kind of a toss up. The neck on this is amazing and the electronics package is, frankly, way better than the Roscoe. B string is outstanding. For the money, I would say that this is the better bass, but the Roscoe fills a different niche for me as I already have a nice active 5 jazz bass. No international offers please. USA only shipping.
