    Beautiful and expertly crafted Warmoth Gecko 5 up for sale. I recently purchased a Dingwall ABZ 5er and love it enough to keep it, so for financial reasons only, need to let this beauty go. By far the best 5 string I've owned up to the Dingwall, but that's twice the price, so it makes some sense.

    This bass was built by Jome77, from here on TB, and as you can see from the pics, and as I can attest to the balance and playability, this guy knows how to build em. This Gecko 5 has the following features:

    Walnut top
    Wenge neck and fingerboard
    Stainless steel frets
    Bartolini pickups
    Gotoh tuners

    Only issue I am aware of is scratchiness in the volume pot. That's it. Clean body, neck, little wear on the pickups.

    Sound is modern with a good deal of tone modification thanks to the Aguilar OBP3 pre and the chosen woods. Hate to see it go, but cant afford them all.

    Asking $950 shipped CONUS. Payment via PayPal. Comes with a heavily padded Levis soft case and will be expertly packed.

    Nut width = 1 7/8"

    Another testament to the build and component quality....this bass, regardless of conditions, rarely goes out of tune. I've been amazed how this beauty holds tight where my others would need tuned up from session to session.
