    This is a ~2008 Hanewinckel 6 String. Unfortunately, I don't have all the specs right this moment but I'd be happy to take specific measurements for you. This is super unique bass geared towards soloists and/or experimental artists. There are just so many different sounds possible from this bass with the pickup configuration in addition to Roland GS-midi support, you'll keep plenty busy exploring this bass as I have over the past ten years. There is a little wear and tear on the back which is shown in the pics.

    Here's what I do know off-hand:

    Scale Length: 33"
    Frets: 26 (will double check but I know it's more than 24)
    Construction: Set Neck (glued & screwed)
    Tuning: E-F
    Body Top Wood: Birdseye Maple
    Body: Walnut
    Pickups: Hanewinckel Custom & Piezo
    Pre: Bartolini

    I have two other basses that I will be posting soon. The only trade I would be interested in is a Fodera, which I would consider trading multiple basses in order to make the trade work.

    You can hear this bass in this video. Towards the 4:00 mark you can hear the Roland GS pushing out some "rhodes-ish" type sounds:

    Could you give a rundown of the controls layout? Wondering if the switches are for coil taping or something else? Also string spacing and weight if you get s chance. Thanks!
