    I hate to sell this bass because it it plays and sounds so good but I just bought a $2k bass and it isn't getting played. I just had it set up, the frets leveled and crowned and a new set of DR fatbeams put on it. Warmoth build with a swamp ash body in a metallic root beer color/mother of toilet seat custom guard with a heavily birdseyed maple neck/pau ferro FB. 19mm by 34" scale 1 7/8" brass nut. EMG PJ 5 PU's and and EMG BQC preamp. It's a 3 band preamp with a sweepable mid and dip switches inside to adjust where the treble shelf starts. I gigged with this bass exclusively for about a year or more. It has some marks on the headstock and a few dings here and there but it's really clean overall. The output on the pre is just right for all my in-ear gigs and it always sounds great through my stage rig. Schaller Lightweight tuners and an A style bridge (not sure of the maker). Balances perfectly and super comfy to play all night. Weighs in right at 10 lbs. You will never need another gig bass. It gets all the tones. This thing blows away any Fender USA P5 by a mile. The only trades I'm looking for is a CALI 76 compact bass comp or the larger Cali 76 comp. Maybe the Keeley pro comp. Paypal only and $60 shipping. Comes with the old Fender teardrop hard case in great shape.

    I don't know about the stiffening bars. I did not assemble the instrument. The neck stays nice and straight and it plays perfectly. If you have a light touch you can lower the action to almost nothing with no buzzing. I don't have any sound clips but I'll see what I can put together if it doesn't sell on evilbay.

    Just messing around with this bass and it sounds and plays great. EMG's are very clear and even. I noticed a nick in the back of the neck at the 11th fret area. I'll knock off $100. $800 plus $60 shipping.

    PS I totally forgot about a session I did about a year ago with this bass. here is a dropbox link. First 2 songs sound like P pu only, 3rd one is both pu's on (I think....).

    Dropbox - nick stuff

    It's boxed up already. Auction ends Thursday morning. It is painted with shielding paint. What are you needing to see?
