    Hey folks.

    Here is my "wild card." The bass the has the best tone and most versatility, bar none. The epitome of truly a "piano-like," 3-dimensional tone. The Delano preamp is the best one I have encountered, and I'm going to design a custom build around one.

    The reverse double-P platform is solid. These pickups are full-range and even, without sharp peaks the tones are amazing throughout the entire blend sweep. You get defined, woody, solid, thick and precise tone at any setting.

    The way the preamp is structured is awesome. Pull the volume for passive. The 3-band eq works in such a way that you can really twist the knobs pretty far and the volume doesn't boost or drop dramatically, just the tone changes. The treble control is active boost, and the "cut" side of it is a passive tone control in both active and passive modes. The 3-way switch selects 3 different frequencies for the mid control.

    The finish has no dings or dents. Just some marks on the end of the headstock and some places of discoloration around a few fret ends.

    The knobs and tuners are Hipshot, the bridge is Kahler, and the straplocks are Dunlop. All the hardware is shiny and free of rust and corrosion. The sustain and tone is unreal. The B is tight and defined. The slap tone when the pickups are blended equal is probably the best I've heard.

    The original nut was cut too low. I had my Luthier professionally installed a Brass nut. He applied a chemical that preserves the brass from corrosion and keeps it shiny. He also did a fret level job and full setup. The back plate is some custom flamed maple. The unused original battery box cavity also has a matching cover, that I'll include. I just prefer it off. Also comes with a truss rod tool and in a Gator hard flight case.

    It's set up with a newish set of Dunlop Super Brights and is truly incredible. I'm paring back to a couple basses and I need to pay off a custom that's almost done.

    Price is firm and includes shipping east of the big River. West of that, add $20.

    It's very comfy. I'd guess it in the mid to high 9's. I'll try to get a weight on it this weekend.

    Up! I just bought a TL5 and I just can't believe how good it sounds. If it weren't for the fact that I need to stop playing six stringers (elbow issues), I'd get that TL6... GLWTS

    Played this on a jazz trio gig this week. Love it to death! But I have 2 other 6ers, and I'm building finances for another custom dream bass, so I'm bumping this.

    I wouldn't be sad yo be keeping it, and if I do, this would be the go-to for recording. Just saying. That TONE.....

    I'm sorry, you caught me on the day I had to renew my membership...

    About shipping overseas... it can be a hassle, and plus, I put a set of chromes on the bass, and I'm really thinking I want to keep it for sure. Such amazing tone just got even better. With the string change it went from a sophisticated meaty jazz type sound to a warm organic Steve Swallow thing now.
