    Price:
    1475
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    California
    I bought this as part of my ongoing experiments on how many strings I'm going to have in the house. Have finally settled on the fact that 4-string covers most of what I do, and I'll keep my Fodera 6-string when I need extended range.

    This is a dead mint Paul Lairat Misiya 5-string (Guitars and basses | Luthier Paul Lairat). This is a "plain" version of his Misaya, with the fancy ones going for about $4600 USD. The neck shape is comparable to the Fodera 5-strings I've had in the past.

    Lairat Misiya 5-string
    alder body
    maple top
    ebony binding on the body (very nice)
    3-piece maple neck (set neck)
    indian rosewood fingerboard
    34" scale
    18mm bridge spacing
    1.81" nut
    Delano pickups
    Delano 3-band preamp

    9.0 lbs

    Comes with a gig bag.

    $1475 shipped/insured in the CONUS.

    TRADES: would consider an interesting 4-string (e.g. 4003SW, P w/J neck)

    Allen wrench like typical setup. Just 2 instead of one. Usually see that on some 6-string basses.

    This is an amazing deal. Paul Lairat make unbelievable basses. If I was in the market for a 5, I'd definitely consider this one.
