    Thank you, but that’s actually a wenge (neck), and a (lacquered) white wenge fingerboard.

    I still stand by my opinion that maple and wenge are wonderful (on another bass)

    THIS bass is amazing!

    You’ve got this listed as a 534, but I thought all 534s had 17.5mm string spacing, not 19mm. Are you sure it's 19mm, and was this a special request?

    The specs I’ve listed are correct for this bass. The 34” scale is special request; the 19mm is standard.

    17.5mm is a special request and can be quickly identified by the non-traditional sized/spec’d Bartolinis installed to those instruments. They’re also typically optioned with a Hipshot A bridge as well, as to better accommodate the more narrow spacing.
