    This is the best bass I've ever owned or played and truly is a "Japan Fodera". The bass is crafted better than anything I've ever held in my hands and sounds as good as it looks. I'm offering this bass up to pay off my custom build through Bacchus and the makers of this bass. This bass is a solid 9.5 out 10 condition. It has Nordstrand Dual coils and Aguilar OBP-3 preamp with Coil tap switch and tone control. The bass weighs at a light 8.5 pounds. It is simply a work of art that will play with any bass out there. This build cost around $4600 when new and if you had the same specs built today it would be over $5500.

    Specs:
    • Buckeye burl top w/Matching headstock
    • Flame maple back
    • Swamp Ash body
    • 3 piece maple neck w/Ebony fretboard
    • Brass fretboard markers. Friggin Brass!
    • Nordstrand DC pickups
    • Aguilar OBP3 Pre Volume/Blend/Tone(w/Push pull coil tap)/treble/mid/bass active/passive switch and Mid frequency switch
    • Hipshot Ultralight Tuners
    • Hipshot B Bridge
    • 34" Scale length
    • 19mm spacing at Bridge
    • 48mm bone nut width
    • 8.5 lbs

    If you change your mind and are open to a straight sale (so maybe you can buy a warrior here on TB) message me I would be seriously interested in a purchase.

    Want to sale outright but if I did trade it would have to be 5 strings only and Iwould be very selective with what I would want. This bass will outplay 3-$4000 basses.

    WOW! Just WOW!! I don't think this would be as good as Fodera. I'm sure this is BETTER!
