This is a GREAT handmade bass -- comfy and light -- and sounds especially superb for slap playing. Serial # is 399, which means it was the 3rd 5-string bass Matt Pulcinella built in 1999. Features: -Mahogany body, lightly flamed maple top with tobacco burst finish -35" scale maple neck with rosewood or pau ferro board -Basslines soapbars with Basslines 3-band EQ and pull slap contour -Ultralight tuners -Excellent ergonomics: your back and both hands will love this instrument! Comes in original, highly-padded gig bag. I'd be interested in any trades you have, as long as you throw in at least $200. . . Thanks. . .
