What a great idea with the switchable pickups , I’m not in the market for another 5 string bass, but this looks brilliant.

Yes, Black one is a ramp and 3 others are pickups (Jazz-Precision-Humbucker). But for all these 4 you can choose any position in the 3 existing slots). 

Added to parametrical 3 bands East Preamp, solutions are almost infinite👽

One more thing:  how can you recognize which type of PU are there? They seem to have identical wood cover.  Or  maybe on their back are there some signs?

Yes you are right. They are markers and crosses (up and down way) on the back to show wich pickup it is.

      NOW SOLD
       
      For sale is a beautiful example of Martin Petersen's work. It was made for Randy Hope-Taylor about 20 years ago, and the chap I bought it from recently had owned it for many years. It's certainly unusual, sporting a Tele headstock and stacked knobs, and as with all Martin's work, beautifully made. Having played extra long scale 5-string basses for many years, sadly it just doesn't work for me and my gorilla mitts!
      Specs:
      34” scale
      Surf green body with matching tele shaped headstock
      Flamed maple neck / Rosewood fingerboard 
      38mm nut / 19mm string spacing 
      Gotoh GBR640 tuners
      Alder body / parchment pickguard
      Passive / stack knob
      Mørch single coil jazz pickups ( 60s spacing )
      Vintage spiral saddle bridge
      Weight 4.8kg
      It also comes with a chrome neck pickup cover and an additional tort scratchplate. The neck & fingerboard was originally painted white, but the previous owner had this stripped some years ago by Martin Sims, and he did a great job revealing the beauty of the flame maple.
      The only trade I would be interested in is for a 35" scale 5-string with 19mm spacing.

      1996 Yamaha RBX360 in dark natural finish. Solid alder body, rosewood and maple neck. In good overall condition, small dings and scratches commensurate with age. Usual excellent Yamaha build quality. Everything is fully working. Has a brand new set of Fender vintage (pure nickel) strings.
      £110 + £20 postage to UK Mainland only.

      The bass is in good condition, technically tiptop, with usual optical used tracks (on the back of the body) and on the top plate smaller things, which I captured in the photos as best as possible.
      Pricedrop 2499 € or Trade Options: Fender Precision or Fretless Bass
      The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.
      Here are some soundfiles, recorded at home.
