PRICE DROP! This is basically brand new condition! Alien Audio Lunar 5 in black matte finish over swamp ash, with a highly figured birdseye maple fingerboard. 2Tek bridge makes this bass sing and ring for like, ever! Nordy pickups in the P/dual coil setup with the very awesome, most versatile preamp available in a bass... the Mo West preamp. This bass can do it all, P bass, Jaco, vintage, modern, and anything else you heart desires! In the hi-fi mode, it can even get MTD-ish. Just recently got this back from Chopper Anderson (owner/builder of Alien Audio) had the black gloss finish removed for this beautiful matte black finish! Bass is in mint condition with nothing I can find anywhere. This bass is basically brand new. These basses brand new run $2500 and up depending on options. I just recently took a trip to Chicago and went to every music store to try out every kind of bass that was offered... I only found one that I felt could hold a candle to this bass and that was a NYC Sadowsky. I absolutely fell in love with that bass and have dreamed of it ever since. I am either going to sell this one and buy one, or trade for a Metro. If you have something else you think would compare (Jazz bass on steroids) , please PM me! I welcome cash offers, but low ballers will be ignored.
