  1. Price:
    Beautiful NS Designs CR5M EUB. Great tonal variations with a wonderful deep B like no other. Comes with tripod stand and carrying bag. Easy to set up. Controls allow for long sustain or percussive sounds as well.
    Excellent condition. Paypal only. Sorry no trades.

    From NS Designs website:

    LENGTH: 132 cm (52")
    WEIGHT: 4.8 kg (10.5 lbs.)
    SCALE LENGTH: 106 cm (41.73")
    CONSTRUCTION: Solid rock maple neck and body, flame maple face
    FINISH: Traditional amber stain with clear semi-gloss polymer coating.
    FINGERBOARD: Macassar Ebony; 43.1mm (1.7") wide at nut; 89.0mm (3.5") max. width.
    BRIDGE: Black phenolic; radius 7.9cm (3.1") string spacing 81mm (3.19").
    NUT: Macassar Ebony; radius 7.9cm (3.1"); string spacing 30mm (1.19").

    BRIDGE PICKUP: The Polar™ directional piezo pick-up system responds selectively to either vertical vibration (for the sustained plucked sound, like an electric bass guitar), or lateral vibration (for dynamic bowing, and a percussive plucked sound).

    MAGNETIC PICKUP (for CR4M and CR5M only): Low impedance EMG™ magnetic pick-up system, with individually adjustable coils, neodymium magnets and low-noise, hum-canceling pre-amp. Produces smooth pizzicato tone not unlike an electric bass guitar. (Magnetic pickups are not recommended for bowing.)

    ELECTRONICS: 18 volt active circuit by HAZ Laboratories. Mono output.
