    Try as I might ... and I try waaaaay too often .... I just can't get into 5 string basses.

    Since I already own and often gig with a very much loved 4 string Maruszczyk Frog, I figured I'd buy a 5 string Frog to hopefully motivate me into getting comfortable with a 5 string bass...but no such luck. I even debated stringing her E-C but then I decided to just stick with what I know best ... 4 string basses.

    But my 5 string fumblings can now be your gain :smug: as I'm putting my absolutely beautiful Maruszczyk Frog Beta 5 up for sale.

    She's really in exceptional condition, both looking and sounding. This bass has a very wide array of tonal options ... she can go from very deep and growly to super bright and punchy just by tweaking her settings. The action is low and fast and the neck is spot on straight. She's also super light weighing in at only 8.6 lbs.

    As an added plus, this bass has been modded with "FretFX" illuminated fret markers as can be seen in the pics below, great for dark stages ... more info on FretFX can be found at the FretFX website. The red LED lights look awesome against the black ash body of this bass.

    SPECS:
    Body: ash
    Neck: hard rock maple, matched headstock
    Fingerboard: padouk, 24 frets
    Nut width: 45mm
    Construction: set in
    Pickups: Bassculture in padouk covers with 2 mini switch (serial/single coil/parallel)
    Electronics: active 3-band Delano - volume (active/passive push/pull switch), balance, bass, middle, treble/passive tone blend
    Finish: black, body/neck matte
    Hardware: black, monorail bridge with 18mm string spacing
    FRETFX illuminated LED fret Markers
    Weight: 8.6 lbs
    incl. Maruszczyk branded Gigbag (One of the the sturdiest gigbags, I've ever seen)
    All the factory paperwork, tools and case candy will be included too

    CONUS only, buyer pays shipping.

    As much as I want to say this is FOR SALE ONLY / NO TRADE OFFERS PLEASE .... My chronic gas affliction never fully abades. So if you've got a really sweet, comparably priced 4 string you'd like to trade ... or a Fearless F215 cabinet, I'm listening :)

    Thanks for taking the time to check her out!

    I have your twin, but w/o the leds. Great bass. BassCultures and Delano is fantastic combination. Good luck w your sale. Adrian makes a fine product.

    Does your bass have the carbon rods in the neck?

    Eakap78: I'd have to pull the build sheet, but I'm pretty sure it does: I haven't bought a "keeper" bass in a few years without graphite/cf neck reinforcements.
