    Hi NYC Bass,
    What is the weight of your NYC babies? I suppose thy are all mid to late 90"ies models ?
    I have a natural ash/ rosewood one from 1997 , 70' ies PU spacing it is 5 kg.
    I am looking for one more, with a 70’ ies spacing, and around 4 kg if possible...
    Do they exist with these specs?

    Thanks Marc

    I loved the NYC 5 String Empire's I used to see on the Bottomwave.com site. I'm talking the tilt-back headstock, fake Butterfly 5'ers. When funds free up later this year, I'll be on the hunt to start my collection...

    The neck profile of an Emperor 4 string is flatter ?
    I like the round neck profile of the NYC‘s
