    Piezo digital pickup system and (updatable) software modeling for 24 of the most desired bass guitars of all time. Vintage, modern, hollow body, acoustic, upright, synth and other sounds including four different Fender Jazz models (including Jaco’s fretless), McCartney’s Hoffner and Ric, Steinberger XL2, Stingray (string spacing is perfect for slapping), eight and 12 string basses, Danelectro, Chris Squire Rickenbacker, synthesizer basses, double bass, and many more. Plus, you can adjust the pickup placement and select either round or flat wound ‘virtually’! You can also further edit the sounds as well as adjust the built-in tones to your satisfaction.

    This is the most versatile bass you will ever own. Runs on 9V, AA, or powered by external power module (2 of these included, only one pictured).

    The guitar is very clean, and the neck is straight and has never been adjusted (100% truss life remaining). There is one issue (does not affect operation) having to do with Line 6 port that I will be glad to discuss with serious buyer. Overall this is in excellent condition.

    My price does not include shipping. Paypal is best.
    • Color: Black body with custom pick guard (did not like the original – have had many compliments on the replacement I put in). Very good condition.
    • Body Style: Similar to Fender P-Bass body and head stock appearance
    • Neck: Maple neck
    • Body: Alder body
    • Number of Frets: 21 fret rosewood fretboard
    • Tuners: Sealed chrome tuners
    • Gig Bag: Custom fitted gig bag
    • Accessories:
      • Two (2) Line 6 cables
      • AA battery pack
      • Two (2) external power supplies (1 shown, 2 included!)
      • Operators manual (not pictured)
    Look at any of the YouTube demonstrations for this bass and you will be impressed. I’m no longer playing five string basses, or I would probably keep this bass for the rest of my life. The tones are really incredible, and the variety and versatility of this guitar is unmatched in my opinion. I liked it so much I purchased the four-string version a few years back and I'm now selling this 705 along with my other five-string basses.
