Hand made in Italy in 2013. This is a 33” scale 5 string bass, in beautiful condition. Featuring a chambered swamp ash body with olive wood facings, bird’s eye maple fretboard, three piece ash/maple through-neck with purple-heart tone block, and a flame maple rear cap. The electronics are custom wound for W&T dual coil pickups, and an East SP 3 band preamp with passive tone. Gold plated ETS bridge, gold plated Hipshot tuners, there’s a d-tuner fitted too on the E/B string, and gold plated Dunlop straplocks. Weight is 9lb or 4kgs.
It comes complete with a brand new Mono Vertigo gig bag.
The bass is really effortless to play. I’ve tended to have it tuned E to C, in fact I’ve really experimented a lot with different tunings on the instrument. The Low B; or whatever you choose to tune it to, always sounds full and balanced, yet very clear and articulate.
I’ve included lots of photos and some video, which might give you an idea of how it sounds, though excuse the playing.
I would really prefer collection only, then you can sit and try it for as long as you want, to make sure you’re happy with it.
