    I've learned that I'm not an active electronics guy. Selling this to fund a p bass. The only trade I would consider is for a Moollon Classic P IV, with a bit of cash on your end. This is a great chance to get a $2865 bass for less.

    • Sleek undersized J body shape
    • Solid swamp ash body
    • Thicker headstock and graphite strips dramatically reduce dead spots and create a more even response on every note
    • Maple fingerboard
    • 1 7/8” on 5-string
    • 21 18% nickel/silver frets .094″ wide x .051″ high, maximum hardness
    • Licensed Hipshot Ultralight Tuners
    • Sadowsky Humcancelling J pickups (60’s location)
    • Classic Sadowsky Treble and Bass boost pre-amp with true bypass switch
    • Controls: master vol, pickup blend, treble roll-off (VTC) with pre-amp bypass, bass boost, treble boost
    • Sadowsky bridge with quick release
    • 19mm 5 string bridge spacing
    • Weight is approximately 9.8 lbs
    • Bass will ship in original case
    Edited for accurate weight (weighed on UPS scale).

    Hey, TB. To give you guys an idea of the range of sounds of this instrument, I recorded some fast and loose demos into Garageband. Signal path was straight into an Apogee One with a 8 year old version of Garageband, so nothing to fancy. Please use headphones or decent speakers to hear the b-string in the first clip. Hope everyone has good gigs this weekend.

    Thanks Holdsg. Timing is a funny thing. I actually thought about listing it a couple months ago but had/have a super hard time parting with it.

    Bass is still available. Serial number is M4899. I’ve owned it for 2 1/2 years, but am honestly not sure what year it is.

    There's simply no better 5 string bass than these MV5's. I Wish I had the right trade bait.
