    Trade My Warmoth P Bass Deluxe 5 string and $200.00 for your old Stingray 5 or G&L 5.

    Warmoth specs

    DeArmond Hardshell case included . $55.00
    Tung oiled alder (much figure to the alder) body. Warmoth $175.00
    Maple/Maple Warmoth Deluxe 5 neck. Ebay $134.00
    Gotoh tuners. Came with neck.
    Schaller strap loks. $15.00
    Schaller roller 5 bridge (drilled string through). $42.00
    Spacing is adjustable from 15.8mm to 17mm.
    Bartolini 5 string M4 soapbar in MM sweet spot ($105.00 for pickup)
    Passive electronics (one tone one volume)

    Warmoth parts and case not including small hardware cost a total of $526.00
    I spent another $175.00 having the neck and body oiled and having all the electronics/pickups
    installed.

    I love this bass and it plays/sounds great (passive) but I’ve always wanted a Stingray 5. I just wanted to put this offer out there to see if anyone would be interested. I’ll include a Bartolini 5 string P bass pickup ($105.00). I originally was going to have it installed (professionally of course) in the neck position but I’ve given up that idea to save money for either an SR5 or G&L 5. The B string is good and tight and the string volume balance is even. Pickguards on front and back shown in pictures are self adhesive backed and can be easily removed. I put the smaller one on the back to help avoid/protect against belt buckle rash. If you are interested…let me know and I’ll attach pics or send them to you.

    Links to demo’s I’ve recorded with my Alt-Pop band Soaking Wet. These two songs were recorded with this Warmoth 5 going through a Tech 21 Bass Compactor (used as a bass and treble boost peddle) and a Hartke 4000 head (all settings at mid positions) to the board. These demos were recorded when I had an EMG HZ pickup installed at the time. The EMG sounded great but I opted for the Bartolini M4 because I wanted that “Bart” sound. I installed the Bart myself and you might wanna “re-do” the soldering but it’s fine with no noise at all. The bass now doesn’t sound too much different…a little warmer and sweeter now with the Bart M4…maybe even more “P” like with the Bart. This is probably the best passive 5 string I’ve played or heard but alas…it’s not an SR5 or G&L 5 and that’s what I’ve always wanted.

    These were taken with a cheap digicam but you get the idea. Since this bass is totally passive I'll include the Tech21 Bass Compactor that I use for it's two band active EQ.
