    This bass is in great condition; I've found only a couple of small dings on the back of the neck. I got it in a swap, and it sounds great -- lots of great tones here. It's become clear that I will not be giving it as much use as it deserves, however. For a great description of this instrument, visit gollihur.com -- all the specs are there, too. You can also search youtube and hear many sound samples. There's a nice one called "Anthony Cooperwood -- Cirque du Soleil -- NS bass" -- if I were aiming to audition for CdS, I would definitely want to keep this bass!
    This seems to be a preferred touring bass for many players, and I can see why, especially if you're playing in a pit group. Comes with two stands (one more heavy-duty) and a heavy-duty bag. Also, this version includes a toggle switch for the pups, not a pan control. Currently strung E-C with DB strings, unknown brand. nsd6.JPG nsd9.JPG

    I am pretty sure I saw Eberhard Weber playing one of these a couple of times, I got hooked, and bought this same base ( from Electric Violin Shop ). I love playing it and at that price it should make an excellent addition to some lucky TB'ers stable. GLWTS

    I've got one of these and really like it!

    Just as an FYI...the fretboard is the exact same as the 4 string version.. So the strings are a bit closer together on the 5 string version.

    Just something I had to get used to... But once I did.... It's easy to play!
