    Once again I'm trimming the redundancy in my collection. Rare Benavente 51p five string. Ash, maple neck and board. Lollar p, dimarzio j pup. Nordstrand three band pre with selectable mids and passive tone. Surf green!!

    Sounds alot like my Sadowsky with identical specs so Im selling it as I prefer the Sadowsky rounder neck. This one is pretty flat in the back and I just prefer them beefier.

    More pics are posted on chris lykins basses shutterfly share site. If you know how to attch them feel free to but Im computer ignorant and have tried

    19 mm and 10lbs which surprises me actually. Feels a little less prolly due to the long inline tuner neck which spreads out the weight.

    Hmmm ... "chris lykins basses" or "chris lykins" doesn't come up on a shutterfly search. What's the url?

    Any chance at a sound clip? Does it come with a case? What's the width @ nut?
    :edit: What's the controls layout?

    Pickups are original but I changed out the preamp. I find the stock preamp to be a little sterile

    One more question. What is the overall length from the end of the body to the tip of the headstock. That long headstock looks cool but I'm wondering if it will fit in my gig bag.

    Thanx

    So with a tape measure its just over 47 in about 471/2. The nut measured with calipers is 1 9/10 incehes or 48mm. Its long but it squeezes into a gig bag. Trades you can run em by me.
