    A true sleeper bass! Made in Korea Samick "Custom Made" 5-String with wenge/bubinga neck, alder body, Kent Armstrong humbuckers and 2-band EQ/preamp. The neck is super slim (front to back) like an Ibanez Soundgear Premium/Prestige but has a 1.75" Nut Width and 18mm string spacing at the bridge (most SR basses have 16.5-17mm). The neck is dead straight (almost no relief), fretwork is superb, very low action, really tight "B" string (as good as the Ibanez SR5XXV that I'm selling as well).

    The bass is in Very Good to Excellent Condition
    with just some buckle scratches on the back and light scuffing on the bottom edge. No dings, dents or cracks, neck is super smooth, frets are in very good condition with just light string wear, new strings just installed. All electronics work perfectly.

    Man, I love the look of that neck!
    Do you happen to have any sound clips, or perhaps some type of description...compared to the tone of another bass?
    (I just have no idea what these sound like)
