    the weight is around 9 lbs it cannot be over 9.5 lb, I’ll try and get a more exact weight it’s pretty light.
    The spacing I believe is 18mm
    Thanks

    It is. I’m only selling because GAS is getting the better of me.

  7. Unless your gas is for something really ultra cool that you absolutely can't live without, you may want to give this a second thought. If you end up missing this bass it will really one of those "too bad" situations because you will not likely ever find one again. Especially one as nice as yours.

  8. I don't play five string. If this bass was a four it would be sold and on the way to my house.

    What are the internal trimpots for, besides an obvious master gain control?

    Isn't it 2 separate pots for pickups gain and 3rd for mid frequency control?

  16. Good.
    Remorse is awful, because not only does it suck your attention back into the past, it is a drain on your heart- even if it is only "stuff".
    But it's stuff that, maybe, has a reasonable connection with you because it's a vehicle for the voice of your soul. Know what I mean?
    Don't want to stay in the deep zone here with it, just iterating that remorse is usually unnecessary, and good to avoid.
    That's a sweet bass.

    I appreciate that :)
    I have two, it’s a bit redundant and I’m gassing for a P. I’ll see, it may come down again. My price is firm. Honestly the bass sounds wonderful and plays wonderfully!
    These Japan Tunes are awesome and addicting.
