    This bass is in pristine condition (10/10). Built in August of 2016. This bass is loaded with the Bartolini Music Man Pups at the Bridge and a Single Coil at the neck which provides a killer variety of tones! A magnificent work of art, and plays like butter. Not a scratch, ding, or chip. 9 lbs, maybe an oz. or two more. Hate to sell her, but responsibility comes first. BRU.

  3. Crazy how the fretboard matches the body going up the neck. That's a beautiful bass, GLWTS.

    Gorgeous bass that I would guarantee sounds amazing. I can't quite get over the fretboard and how it looks as if there is a face in there looking back at you lol. Does anyone else see that?

    I am a HUGE fan off buckeye but have never seen it on a fretboard. it is generally unstable wood which is why it often has a gloss clear coat. how does the fretboard hold up stability wise ? tonally ?

    what does the toggle switch do? is the back of the neck more flat or more rounded?

    no issues stability wise, solid feel, even more solid player. switch is a three way...series, parallel, and humbucker....bass does it all, and then some..if i had to describe the back of the neck, i'd say it was perfectly carved for comfort..not too thick (baseball bat), and evenly distributed between flat and round. Remarkably comfortable!!!

    Stunning! Love it! One of a kind for sure. Curious.... what are the, for lack of a better term, the glossy blobs that look like sideways notes above the bridge?
