    Hey Everyone,

    Did not think I would do this but I must let go of this amazing bass. This is one of the most unique basses you will ever see.The Delano electronics do an amazing job of providing clear and even tone from each of the 7 strings. The bass is in mint condition with the exception of the strap button holes left by the original owner. Please PM me any questions you may have, this MONSTER deserves a home where she will be played more.

    $1,900 shipped.

    I originally purchased this from a fellow TB'r in Canada. It cost a ton to ship/import into the US.
    Also, there is both an unblanced 1/4" jack and a balanced XLR jack for the output.
    • Tuning: BEADGCF, 7 strings, currently wearing Black Beauties (combination of 6 string bass and 1 string from the guitar set).
    • Weight: 10.5
    • Wood: swamp ash covered by a transparent white coat that allows you to see its beautiful grain through. Matching headstock. Ebony fretboard with white perloid inlays.
    • String Spacing: 16.5mm at bridge
    • Scale: 34"
    • Pickup: Delano MC7 FE dual coil custom
    • Preamp: Delano Sonar 3
    • Controls: Master volume (pull for passive mode), 3-band EQ - treble (custom pot tone function during passive operation), 3-way mid frequency selector switch (300Hz, 500Hz, 800Hz), PU coil tap (parallel, single coil, in series)

    That looks like Swamp Ash sandwiched with flamed Maple top and back.

    Some great offers but I'd rather keep this beast for now. Who knows, may get a jazz gig that requires some soloing.

    This instrument is way way over the top but it makes a lot of sense. Love it although I have no idea what I'd do with it.
