    Here is an all original Ash body Growler including Tobias hard shell case. It is in virtually like new condition. I guess you’d call it a closet queen. If there are any imperfections they would be minor.

    Beautiful Ash grain on this one with Wenge fingerboard.

    This is the coveted early Growler with Bartolini electronics including the dual preamp treble/bass config and mid switches and quad coil dual pickup. The quad-coil pickup is basically split into two separate humbuckers within the same housing. Each half has it's own separate preamp "channel".

    • Volume
    • Pickup pan (sweep to front coils or rear coils)
    • Stacked treble/bass boost/cut for front coils
    • Stacked treble/bass boost/cut for rear coils
    • Mid switch boost/cut/neutral for front coils
    • Mid switch boost/cut/neutral for rear coils

    Really sweet bass with asymmetric neck that is quick to play and comfy. Excellent balance.

    You don’t find these that often — especially in this condition. Will also ship with proprietary truss rod tool.

    Hmm, possibly but mostly looking to trade for cash. :D

    You never know I guess. I only play 5 string though these days so any offers for a bass with more or less strings will be politely ignored.

    Oh man, I wish. This was my dream bass back in the '90's. Never had a chance to play one myself, but I lusted hard after one after seeing the bassist from "Burlap to Cashmere" play one live. Incredible tone. It definitely growls.
