    You Know her. You Love Her. And now, you can Own Her! The Infamous Katrina Bass!

    Yes, this started out as a 1998 Blue, Gloss Finished Streamer LX-5. Add one Force-5 Hurricane, Receding Flood Waters, a Fence to hold the afore mentioned Streamer bass in place, and an $800 Insurance settlement, and I give you The Katrina Bass!


    With the insurance money the original owner purchased a NOS 1998 Lefty Neck, Gold Hardware, Basslines Active Pickups, the Pick Guard, and had it heavily Sealed. Once he realized he had more to worry about than his bass he decided to pass this project on. That's where I come in!


    I removed the Basslines, and added a set of MEC pickups, and 2 Band Pre-Amp out of another LX-5. I also added the JAN-3, the cavity surround & cover, and the Truss Rod Cover. At this point I played her for about a month, and then got my BN-5 Dolphin...


    But she plays well, sounds like a Warwick, and has Mojo like no other!



    The Lefty Neck takes some getting used to...

    NOS Neck serial number at June of 1998. Pre-Katrina!

    NOS Wenge!

    Yep, that's a Crack in the body...

    I couldn't pull it apart.



    That's what a Legend Looks like.

    I am going to open up some trade options. Interesting Items to the head of the line. 5-String, Active, Fretted or Lined Fretless seems to be my preference.

    5-String Gibson or Boutique Thunderbird and Alembics are always interesting!

    $750 Shipped in a RockBag to your CONUS address. (Add $25 for West Coast)
