Got this here and it is still like new! Only played occasionally at home. Selling to fund another purchase - no trades
Here's the description borrowed from the previous sale:
New price: 2565 USD (bass) + 300 USD (shipping costs) + 687 USD import costs = 3552USD / 3152Euro / 2790GBP
lightweight Swamp Ash body with Wengé veneer and Brazillian Olive wood top

24 fret lines with dot markings on the side of the neck
2 Nordstrand Zen blade pickups passive Volume / Balance / Tone
Ebony ramp (slides in - not affixed with any adhesive)
Gotoh tuners and mono-rail bridges

35" scale for a mighty B string, and an active B/M/T pre with volume/blend. Purchased from Brother Jones of this parish but now need to make space for impending house move...
19mm spacing at bridge
Cosmetically as per photos, one small dent on front shown.
Fully working order and a lovely player.
All controls work well, although the centre detentes don't 'bite' as much as they maybe should. But the pots hold their position and I've never had a problem.
Comes with gig bag, of which the pocket zip doesn't work but the main bag zip does.
Will ship for free in UK by Parcelforce 48

This was originally bought here on Basschat as a back up instrument to my 5-string Peavey Cirrus. It served well as a back up and wasn’t actually used except in a rehearsal and at home! It plays great however, and for those wanting a narrower string spacing on a 5-string it’s a good fit. It feels ‘easier’ to play than my Musicman Bongo (due to neck shape I suppose). It reminds me of the smoothness of my Mike Lull, but with a narrower string spacing. The active EQ can dial in a huge range of sounds making this an extremely versatile instrument. This article from back in the day features it in a high end 5-string shoot out:
Here are some of the specs as listed in that article:
Condition: very good with just a few minor flaws (see photos): surface scratch on the back of the bass; a slight string mark on the edge of the neck pickup; small mark on the back near the neck join.
This bass does not come with a case, so pickup preferred, but willing to discuss shipping. Based in Bradford.
