    Rob Allen - Deep 5
    -Built in 2006
    -Alder body
    -Koa Neck with Ebony stringers
    -Macassar Ebony Fingerboard with 21 fret lines, side dots like a fretted bass
    -33” scale (Custom Scale)
    -Tuned B E A D G (but can be tuned E to C)
    -Comes with bonus uncut replacement nut!
    -Custom Tuners from Bass Legend Gary Willis
    -Weight is 6.70lbs on my Rapala Fish Scale
    -String spacing is 18mm (measured string centre to centre)
    -Nut Width 1 and 7/8"
    -Ships with two brand new sets of LaBella Black Nylon Tapewounds for B to G tuning and an opened bonus pack including just the A, D, and G strings.

    Per Rob Allen from a post on this bass from all the way back in 2011:
    Here would be the replacement cost:
    Deep 5 $4100, custom scale $500, exhibition koa top $500, total cost new $5100, assuming his prices have definitely changed...this bass would easily be more money today if bought new!

    Condition isn’t mint, there’s minor playing wear on the top and some light almost buckle or shirt button rash if you look very closely at the photos. Can’t be seen from 3 feet away. The finish is so thin on these basses, it looks great for a bass of its age!
    I recently cleaned this instrument up.
    The piezo volume control was very dirty and has been cleaned. The bass has been setup for low action and plays comfortably.

    Ships in Rob Allen G&G case.

    Price tag is $3450USD shipping included within Canada or to the Lower 48 United States. International shipping possible at a premium, contact me via PM / Start a conversation with me for more details.

    Side note, if anyone has a need for a case for their Rob Allen MB-2 4 string, I happen to have one available:
    For Sale - Rob Allen Case for MB-2 - 4 string - 34" Scale

    Sorry no trades on this one folks!

    Nope, it's as I spec'd it above.
    Alder body with a special Koa neck.
    From my own personal experience, I'm 100% positive the body is Alder.
    The Koa neck came from Rob's confirmation.
    SOLD - FS: ROB ALLEN DEEP 5 CUSTOM 33 SCALE

    And for those following.....my price is pretty stellar considering the upgrades on this bass.
    You're getting less than 2011 pricing! :)
