    This is a USA-built Saratoga 5-string PJ w/ black quilted maple top over a poplar body. It has a 34" scale maple neck with 24-fret grenadillo fingerboard, Bartolini B-Axis PJ Pickups w/ active / passive 18v Bartolini HRT32 preamp, 19MM spacing and weighs in at a very comfortable 9 lbs 1 oz.

    This bass was a display piece for the summer 2017 NAMM show. There is ZERO play wear, not a single ding, dent, or scratch - bass is in as-new condition and comes with an equally as-new MTD heavy duty gigbag.

    Selling because no matter how nice the bass is I just do not play 5-string anymore. This one covers all the modern and vintage tones w/ the active / passive bart pole piece pickups and plays effortlessly with low even action across the entire neck. B-string is TIGHT and not a concern w/ the 34" scale.
