    Up for sale is my hotrodded OLP MM3 5 string. This thing has some great 'Ray tone for only $350 shipped CONUS! Cosmetically, this bass is in great shape, with only minimal play wear. Paypal preferred, overseas ok but shipping will be extra.

    Here's the mods:

    • Seymour Duncan Basslines SMB-5d (ceramic) MusicMan Active Pickup
    • Seymour Duncan Basslines STC-3M3 3-Band,3 Knob MusicMan Tone Circuit with 'slap contour' pull knob
    • Schaller 496, 5 String Bass Bridge, Chrome
    • Easy Change 9V Battery Compartment

    Here's a quick soundclip (eq flat/direct in)

    Wow, that B string sounded pretty good. Nice mods! Man, if I didn't just spring for another bass, I might have jumped on this!

    Bump for a nicely modded OLP!

    I see it's now on hold, but just out of curiosity (and just in case ...)

    1) Can you tell me the weight?

    2) Is the string length and spacing the same as on a 5 string Stingray (34" and 17mm)?

    Sure, not a problem. Bathroom scale reads 10.2 lbs. A little on the heavy side, but not too surprising I guess since it's solid Ash. Scale length is 34" and the string spacing looks to be about 17.5mm. The bridge has adjustable string spacing, so that can be tweaked.

    The low B really is good on this one. I prefer 34" scale and while it can be hit and miss on the B string sometimes, I definitely don't buy in to the rule that 34" automatically equals crappy B string. =)

    Still waiting for payment confirmation, I'll let everybody know if status changes!
