    Price:
    2300
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    California
    REDUCED PRICE!

    Asking $2400 $2300

    The feel is great, the sound is amazing, the EQ options are almost endless!

    Brady Muckelroy 33" scale fretted

    Alder body (or "wings") with gorgeous claro walnut tops

    3-piece neck-through is cherry wood with a padouk center

    The fretboard is a highly-figured Bolivian Rosewood board

    Pickups are Delano quad-coil Xtenders

    In addition to the 3-band EQ, there are two coil-tap switches to allow for series/parallel/single coil operation of the pickups (you can mix-and-match at will).

    The three main control knobs are: Volume, Pickup blend, and Tone. (this bass is active-only. No active/passive switch.)

    Condition on this bass is very good, but it has a few tiny "nicks" and "dings" shown in the last three photos.

    Weight is 8 lbs, 7 oz.

    This bass specs-out at around $4500

    (Sell to lower CONUS only. No International Sales)
    (Payment by PayPal to PayPal address only, thanks.)

    Local pickup would be OK. (LODI, CA)

    You know, I'm not sure.
    I'll PM the previous owner and see if he knows...

    serial.

    "date of completion" - not sure. We'll have to email Brady about that.

    From Brady:

    "That bass originally had a Muck Pre in it, but that is not it (different colored wires). Definitely not my work, either (quite sloppy). Looks like someone made some modifications."

    I know that doesn't help us ID the brand of pre, but now we know it's not a Muck Pre...

    That was my bass, and it DEFINITELY has a Bolivian Rosewood fretboard on it.

    Also, I did NOT change the preamp or do any wiring on it, so it is exactly as it was when I received it from Brady Muckelroy in 2015.

    No modifications whatsoever have been made to this bass in the last 3.75 years, which is the period of time that I owned it. The only thing that has been changed is the strings, which were replaced a few times in the time that I owned it.

    No offense taken. It just ticks me off because I have not done any alterations to that bass since receiving it in 2015, other than to change the strings and set it up for string height and intonation. I do not think that I ever removed the control cavity cover in the entire time that I owned that bass.

    Look at the spaghetti mess in that control cavity!

    Regardless of the preamp, it’s a beauty of a bass. GLWTS.

    This bass served me extremely well on scores of gigs and probably more than 100 band rehearsals from 2015 until late 2018. It has such a fabulous range of tonal options and a great set of pickups, plus a very comfortable body.

    I bet that I could tell you where each of those small “dings” and nicks came from, and I mean which gig, and whether the ding was from contact with a drummer’s cymbal or from bumping it on a wall next to the stage. I could probably even tell you which club and/or theatre I was playing at when the dings happened.
