    This bass was my fathers, don't have much info on it. Pictures should tell more. These are hard to find from what I have looked up, not sure if they are still making them. Everything works and the bass sounds great, the blue color is gorgeous. Has a few dings and dents scratches from normal use, some gunk on the neck near headstock from sitting in a rubber coated guitar holder, looks like it will come off with cleaning. Comes with a metal hard case, strap, tuner and neck wrench.

    Update: From what a few people have emailed me these are pretty rare and less than 100 were made. The bridge and tuners have been changed to a Kahler bridge and Hipshot Ultralite tuners, I have not located the original bridge or tuners but if I do they will be mailed out to the buyer. These basses went out of production when it was discovered that the pickups weren't quite wide enough to cover all 5 strings. This is likely why the bridge was changed - to set the strings closer together so the pickups gave a more even response from B to G.

    I like 5, 8, 10, and 12 string basses
    I remember talking to the original owner who made the mods. It is a nice bass. I would replace the pickups and add a preamp if it were mine
