    Warmoth Deluxe V G5 Ash body and G5 Birdseye maple neck (upgrade) with 24 fret extension. (upgrade)

    The neck is new. Satin finish by Marty Bell. I have 4 gigs on this neck. (I'm keeping my wedge/ebony G5 neck after all this :meh:)

    Carbon stiffening rods. (upgrade)

    Neck pocket is 2 7/8" wide.

    Bridge spacing adjustable 17.5 - 18 mm.

    Nut width is 1 7/8.

    Ash body with a sealer coat*. Ready for final finish. You can feel the grain.

    *This bass has gone into use before a final finish, mainly because I was trying different pickup combinations, so it is a prototype of sorts. The sheen from the sealer coat is a little rubbed off in some spots. If you don't mind how it looks with just the seal coat the body won't get damaged. You can also take some steel wool and take the rest of the sheen off and get a totally matt finish.

    String through option when using a 17.5 mm bridge. (Pics below focusing on some details.)

    3 hole control with rear mounted control cavity.

    Vol/Vol/Tone passive

    18 volt dual battery box.

    Nordstrand Fat Stack pickups. (New) 18mm spacing.

    Hipshot B-Style bridge. 17.5mm Black/Brass.
    Adjustable to 18mm.

    Right now the bridge saddles are adjusted so the strings are *dead center* the 18mm pickup poles.

    Due to a dull drill bit there is one hole on the back where the string ferrule fit into needing some patching/repair.

    TERMS OF SALE:

    NO TRADES except for the following heads: Tone Hammer 500, Epifani Piccilo or 501 plus cash on my end.

    $750.

    Wow, another amazingly clean build, Doug. I'm wondering if you basses speak to anyone else, or just me? She is a beauty. I think all of us like the color of raw wood, from time to time. GLWYS!
