    Handsome bass, Excellent condition, minor wear only. One small surface scratch above pickguard (seen in pics) hard to see in pics.

    Cleaned, setup and currently strung with DR Hi Beams. I am happy to demo this for anybody, though it's a Bongo and sounds like one! Also happy to take any additional pics.

    Thank you

    Edit: 6/27 morning. Bridge Pickup Demo added. YAMAHA Pb-1 Direct

    Edit:
    So I busted out a quick demo as someone asked if I could. Not covering a lot of ground with technique or style but shows the fundamental tone and the low B (Not real tight, but not rubbery either). And touch on all the strings at least once or twice - Some with guitar/piano. PRIVATE LINK: >>
    • · Vol. Full
    • · Both Pickups On.
    • · All controls center/unity.
    • · Demeter VTBP-201 direct.
    Forgive any lack of ‘spirit’ in the playing, this bass has a lot more fretboard noise with the DR Hi Beams and low action than others I have. I personally have to be super controlled or it gets a bit clanky IMO.

    Cheers, RG

    Wow. Great playing, great low B, great bass! Wish I had a use for a 5 (and wish I had unlimited funds.)

    LOL, cheers and thanks. I don't mind the comparison. Waylon is an OG in our home.
