I've wanted to try one of these Will Lee 5's for a while and since I was in the market for an alder rosewood J bass......... I was drawn to the WL because of the 1 3/4" nut and I love Sadowsky basses. It's an awesome bass but it's redundant for me. I have too many modern sounding Jazz basses already. I was looking for more of an old school Fender jazz bass sound. This bass can do it pretty well but it's more of a modern sound than I'm looking for. Slightly compressed with a warm bottom end but has the Sadowsky pre so it can do the slap thing nicely also. The mid boost section is really cool. I found myself using it for all kinds of stuff (boost for solos, bridge PU bark with both pickups on, need to cut through just a little more etc.). Pretty lightweight at just under 9lbs. Comes with a Sadowsky semi hard case. I did a fret dress, lightly oiled the FB with linseed oil and put a fresh set of DR Fat Beams on it. Set up with medium action. Plays amazing and no dead spots. I'm really looking for an older alder/rosewood 4 string Jazz bass or something similar. I can trade up or down depending. Otherwise, just looking to get what I paid for it less than a month ago. Small ding on the front and some slight indents on the back of the neck. I have not noticed them since I've had it (I've done half a dozen gigs with it). You can see the pic. Comes with Schaller straplocks, allen key and headstock mount (new in the shrinkwrap)and a sadowsky headstock protector thingy for hanging it on the wall or stand. It will be well packed and shipped fedex ground insured. $2k shipped to lower 48. Actual charges elsewhere. Thanks.
