    Hey everyone. Trying to raise some money to sink in to a really expensive bass that came up on eBay. To that end, up for sale is my RBass Jazz 5. This one features a very traditional 70's build. Ash body, maple neck, beautiful birdseye maple board, ash laminate on the headstock, 70's pickup spacing and Nordstrand 70's wound single coil pickups. Comes with a Glockenklang preamp, which isn't 70's really, but it is like a 70's muscle car supercharger. 35 inch scale, 19mm spacing. *The scale length is 35 inches. Yes that is correct, 35 inches. It is a 35 inch scale bass. The measurement from the nut to bridge saddles is 35 inches. From the nut to the 12th fret is 17.5 inches, which, when doubled, equals 35 inches, which is, in fact, the scale length of this instrument. It has been confirmed using several tools, methods, and technicians. The only possibility for an inaccurate measurement would be if I lived in some type of localized gravity bubble that traveled with the bass itself, and stretched the space/time continuum around it. You don't have to worry about that being the case however, because if it is, the bass would still exhibit the qualities of a 35 inch scale instrument. Which it is.*

    At first glance, this bass seems plain. But the more you look, the more appealing it becomes. The ash body is very well choosen, the board looks great, the headstock is cool, and the contrast with the black hardware is pretty nice. This one has really grown on me. It feels great as well. The contours are super smooth, as is the finish. Ray really knows what he is doing.

    I would call this bass mint. I can't find any flaws on it.

    $2400 obo, shipped. I always consider trade offers if you want to make one. I can go plus/minus cash, depending. Please PM me if you have something in mind. Thanks! P7060893.JPG P7060894.JPG P7060895.JPG P7060896.JPG P7060897.JPG P7060898.JPG P7060900.JPG P7060902.JPG P7060903.JPG
