    I love this bass, but I've become overwhelmed with 5-String Jazz basses, and the guys I play with don't like this one as much as some of the others. This is one of the Prettiest basses Nino has ever built, and it plays like a Dream! and at just a Tick over 8 Lbs, you can play for Hours! There is one very small ding that is pictured.


    Specs:
    S24FJ5
    Swamp Ash body
    5A quilted maple top
    Graphite reinforced maple neck
    Birdseye Maple fretboard
    Sadowsky Soapbar Pickups
    Sadowsky Preamp w/VTC
    Black Hardware
    Schaller Strap Locks
    HipShot Ultralite Keys
    Bad Ass Bridge
    35" Scale
    12" fretboard radius
    19mm bridge spacing

    As Jesus will no doubt mention next time you gig with him ;): one former owner wanted a new 4-string, one didn't like the 35" scale, one had band mates that preferred other instruments—let's face it, this look is not for some—and also some potential buyers are unfamiliar with Nino's work.

    I need a good quality 35" scale 5-string with a big modern sound. I like Sadowsky pre's (have an NYC RV4), and have a fretless Valenti "stealth" 5er, so Nino's work is a plus for me. I wanted an Ash/Maple combination, and don't need passive jazz tone, as I have that very well covered. As far as the look goes, it reminds me of Lanikai. If you have never been there, you won't get it.
