    Gorgeous PRS Gary Grainger 5 with Violet Quilt Maple 10 Top. Near mint condition. I have 3 Gary Graingers and am selling one. I also have my 4-string up for sale. If one goes, the other stays. Mahogany body. 34" scale, rosewood board, 24 frets, 18mm bridge spacing. Weighs 9 1/2 pounds. Fitted with Schaller strap locks. Comes with case/candy also like new.
    Frankly, I'd rather not sell this because 1) it's one of the best playing basses I've ever owned and 2) you can't find them on the used market. Like many others on TB I've overextended with recent purchases a bit and some things need to go. I also have a custom build in process. If some other things sell first, this will surely stay, so I don't expect to be listing this for long. Take advantage of its availability while you can.
    $2450 shipped/insured to CONUS only. PayPal preferred. Not interested in trades on this one.

    This is a great price I've seen the four string versions going for over $4000.

    I agree these are custom shop instruments and they don't make a lot of them. If I had the extra scratch I would have hit that PayPal button the second this posted.

    What makes this bass 'near mint'?

    All I've found is one little dimple on the top, not able to photograph. It has to be in certain light and position to see. You know the drill, someone will find some little blemish and dispute the term mint. I'd rather undersell and over-deliver. Let's just say it's pretty darn close to mint.

    I's actually better in person than in the pictures. Under the violet is kind of a greenish thing going on. Gives it a 3-D effect. Really cool looking.

    Nice bass.
    I saw Gary Grainger playing one with Acoustic Alchemy.
    Great sounding axe.
