    Very striking Matt Pulcinella Level 5 with Musicman and Precision bass pickup configuration.
    The colour is very striking and really stands out. Its a red, blue with a hint of yellow burst and very unusual.
    It sounds amazing and does both the Musicman and Precision thing brilliantly well. it has Nordstrand pickups and I have recently installed a brand new John East U Retro Deluxe preamp which is the most versatile onboard preamp I have ever used. The John East set me back $400 but well worth it.


    Here are the specs for this bass:

    Body: Alder

    Neck: Maple

    Fingerboard: Birdseye Maple

    Bridge: Hipshot B style bridge

    Tuners: Hipshot Ultralite tuners

    Preamp: John East U Retro Deluxe

    Pickups: Nordstrand MM and P Pickups

    Looks neat.

    Standard-ish questions: Scale length? Spacing? Nut width? Thanks!

    34" scale, 19mm spacing (I think) and a hair under 1.75. I miss this bass.

    I have the jazz configuration version of this same bass. Loaded it with Nordstrand pickups and a Sadowsky pre and it kills. Very comfortable as well. GLWTS!

    I don't at the moment but if you are really interested I could make a recording of the bass over the weekend and send it to you?

    Hi there.

    Here is the link to John Easts website and the PDF for this exact preamp where it explains every feature of this preamp. There are plenty of knobs and switches to play with so you can pretty much get any tone you require. Take a look

    Regards

    Keith

    It's a 3 way switch for the musicman pickup.

    No case came with the bass but I might have a gigbag here to put it into to keep it safe for shipping.

    got a pic of the end of the headstock (looks like it's dinged a bit from the one pic) and the input jack?
    truss rod fully functional?
    thanks
