    Purging most of my gear.

    This one hurts. Just picked it up in a trade, I was only supposed to trade for a fretless. but ended up with this amazing bass. Things have changed personally and I am forced to unload a lot of gear.

    This is the best bass I've owned. There. I said it. Many have come and gone but nothing matches this bass. It just has it all! Plays incredibly, sounds fantastic and balances perfectly. I guess it looks pretty great too!
    Rock solid B string too!

    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
    • Ships in Road runner case
    Bass is in very good shape. Some basses just feel extra solid. This bass has that. Not heavy just solid

    Here is the STR page

    STR GUITARS:349-LS549

    Only trade would be down for a fretless 5 18mm or wider at the bridge. 34" scale Less than 9 lbs unlined preferably. I really need the cash at this point.

    $2400 shipped OBO.

    I wanted to buy this last time it was available with the previous owner but it was gone when I had the money. I then put down to have one custom built so my money is now gone lol. This is a bass I have desired for a while and I know whoever gets it will love it. Just my luck OP...GLWS
