This is a bass that was built for a slap bass player. Pavel built 2 titanium truss rods into the neck which allows for an extremely percussive sound. The neck plate was also custom built. The body,pickups,and bridge were well chosen to create a bass that sounds great with much tonal variation. The price for this bass is a giveaway it is worth at least $1000 more. Don’t miss this chance for a great instrument in excellent condition,at a great price.
