    :p Decided to break down and get a new one boys and girls.(Looked for a used one for a long time but couldn't find what I wanted). It has a clearcoat finish with a Burled Maple top. It has EMG's but I'm having the dealer switch them out for Barts.:p

    Thanks for letting me Brag alittle, Check out the picture and tell me what you think,
  2. That looks like one that was for sale at Gguitars. Is that your retailer?

    Barts is a wise choice, especially with the composite fingerboard.

    WOW! That is killer! One curiousity tho,, it looks like it has 2 stacked pots,, is that a sweepable midrange ? If it is it's even better!

    You just had to post a thread about a Q5, didn't you? :p I've been GAS'in for one for a while now. As of late, the urge has been very strong.

    Anyway, congrats on the new Q5. Enjoy.

    I'm just using my first piece of maple burl to make a bass top. I sent my customer your picture, to give him an idea of how his will look. Fantastic bass!

    All my basses now are natural looking maple. Like the look. Good choice.

    Nice looking Q5.

    I recently got a Q5 with a quilt top and honeyburst finish. Yesterday my Q6 with a chechen top arrived. Must be a trend starting to develop!:)

    Both of my Q's have Bartolini PUs and 18 volt 3 band preamps. They play and sound wonderful.

    That's a great looking bass. With the Barts. it'll also sound fantastic.

    That's an interesting burl top. Looks like it almost develops a flame right in the middle and then goes back to burl. Very unique.

    That is the same thing that turned me on about that particuler one. Do you think it's lighter or darker than the picture?:cool:
