    Price:
    2500
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    Pennsylvania
    EDIT: I have dropped the price to $2,500 and this will be the final price drop!

    I have mixed feelings about selling this bass, for a number of reasons:
    1.) It was Brady Muckelroy's personal gigging bass for about a year or so, and he spared no expense in it's construction.
    2.) It was also my main gigging bass for close to three years
    3.) It sounds fabulous!​
    However, I have made a conscious decision to play only 34"-scale basses for consistency's sake, and as such I am selling all of my 33" and 35" scale basses, including this one.

    Here are some details regarding the bass:
    • As the title indicates, it has a 33" scale length. The B-string (currently strung with Fodera Nickel roundwounds) sounds great.
    • It has an alder body (or "wings") with gorgeous claro walnut tops on them.
    • The 3-piece neck-through is constructed of cherry wood with a padouk center.
    • Although the fretboard looks like Macassar Ebony, I believe that it is a highly-figured South American Rosewood board.
    • The pickups are the fantastic Delano quad-coil Xtender model, and they kick butt!
    • In addition to the 3-band EQ, there are two coil-tap switches to allow for series/parallel/single coil operation of the pickups (you can mix-and-match at will).
    • The three main control knobs are: Volume, Pickup blend, and Tone (this bass is active-only).
    • Condition on this bass is very good, but it has a few tiny "nicks" and "dings" (after all, it was two players' main gigging bass for a total of close to four years).
    • Weight is a hair less than 8.5 lbs. (about 8 lbs, 7 oz.)

    I have a gig bag that came with the bass, which I will include. Other gig bag and hard case options are available.

    This bass specs-out at about $4,400 - $4,750, so I do not have much "wiggle room" in my price, but I am willing to listen to reasonable offers.

    As with the other basses that I am selling, no trades please!

    I’ve been intrigued by Brady’s basses for a while. Seems to be very good built basses that sound great.

    UPDATE - I checked, and it is indeed an Ecuadorian Rosewood fretboard.

    I already have this bass listed at almost $1,000 less than I paid for it, so there is not much room for “haggling”, but I am open to REASONABLE offers.

    Still available, and I am REALLY motivated to sell before the end of December (pre-Christmas would be very nice)!
