    Excellent condition Reverend Mercalli 5 for sale. Includes the Reverend tear drop hard shell case ($227 from Reverend). I've owned several Reverend models through the years including an original Rumblefish and this Mercalli 5 takes the cake.

    Bass plays stupid good. Seriously some of the best fretwork I've seen outside of boutique basses. Takes a silly low setup and sounds phenomenal. Balances perfectly on a strap too. Super comfortable oval shaped neck.

    I did rewire Volume/volume/tone, replaced the pots with CTS and put a push/pull (series/parallel) pot on the bridge pickup volume knob. Certainly opens the bass up to additional tones. Also replaced the knobs with aluminum stereo type and replaced nut (original nut broke when replacing strings). I do have the original knobs and parts if for some reason someone wants them.

    Bass in in great shape. Can't find a ding anywhere though I've played it a lot so I'm marking the condition as excellent in case someone finds something I can't see.

    • Body - Korina Solidbody
    • Pickups - Thick Brick 5 bridge, Split Brick 5 neck
    • Bridge - String-Thru-Body or Top-Load, 3/4" spacing

    Trades. Mainly need a new cabinet. Selling this to buy a 2X12. not sure which one yet.
