    Here's an amazing PRS Grainger 5 string. A real looker in excellent condition. Plays fantastic with low action.

    Beautiful carved, figured tiger stripe maple top with natural binding over mahogany. Maple neck with real nice rosewood fingerboard. Exquisite PRS signature bird inlays. Unique PRS set neck.

    3-band EQ with treble, bass, and mids boost and cut. Volume for each pickup. Uniquely, pulling up on each pickup volume knob puts that pickup in passive mode.

    These are killer bases. Incredible and unique pickups and electronics. Sounds big and punchy and modern in active mode and much more traditional and old school in passive. Fast, easy playing slim neck with 34" scale. Excellent balance and ergonomics. 9.3 lbs according to digital bathroom scale.

    This is sort of a feeler as I'm not 100% certain I'm ready to let it go but am interested in a sale or possible trade — Mostly a Sadowsky five string. Might be interested in other 5 string basses though. Blame it on G.A.S.

    Bass is in excellent condition only one small ding near input jack. Minor swirling all gloss finishes seem to have. I'm pretty picky though.

    Will ship with original PRS hardshell case (in almost like new condition) with all case candy and tools.

    Now for the eye candy. :D

    Edit: November 10
    I was looking over the bass carefully for an interested party and found a tiny indentation on the spine of the bass. I hadn't noticed it before. It is very minor but I'm knocking down the price anyway.

    I've got my eye on something so big price drop!

    $2050 plus $90 for shipping.

    Yes indeed. I've been reluctant to give this thread visibility but I now am motivated to sell. Why? Only because a bass I used to own has come up for sale. There is some sentimental value in it and though I don't think it is as great a bass as this PRS I think I want to try getting it back.

    Just saw Gary Grainger playing with Acoustic Alchemy.
    The bass sounded great and was very versatile with the
    tunes they play.
    Him and his brother, the drummer are really hot players.

    That’s the nicest example of these basses that I’ve seen. Sweet.
