    Hate to do it but unexpected financial issues force me to sell this bass. I also don't really play 5 strings that much. Ash body, zebrawood top with matching headstock, maple neck with pauferro board, Gotoh tuners and bridge, EMG CS pickups with Aguilar OBP-1 pre. String spacing 18mm, 34 inch scale. I don't know how Nino does it but his basses have the best playability and setups of any basses I have owned (Lull,Sadowsky,Lakland,Fodera, etc.). Nice low action, good B string. I would estimate weight at around 9.5 lbs. Comes with generic (Rockbass) hardshell case. Paypal only or Postal money order which must be sent overnight Express Mail.
    $1000.00 with FedEx ground shipping included to lower 48 states only. Pic attached but you can also go to Valentibasses.com and check the sold gallery to view more.

    Hey, that can't be #008, I had #008 which is a LPB 5-string Jazz. Nice bass btw.

    That is a seriously great looking bass. I bet it sounds and plays as good as it looks.

    I recognize that bad boy. I believe AJ was the previous owner
    I bought a Smith from him , sold that one and some other things to fund a SAD.
    Good Luck with the sale.
