Maple neck, Radiused Bubinga fingerboard with artistic position markers on the bass edge of the frets. Nickel Gotoh tuners. Volume and tone knobs with 3-way pickup selector switch and push/pull coil tap.
This is a guitar made by a local luthier from Helena, MT, and is quite well-made. There are several unique features of this guitar that make it one of a kind. The shape is technically a double cut-away, but it is a completely original design, and really pleasing aesthetically. The input jack is located on the back of the body, instead of on the front or the side. The positioning of the jack is really great, it keeps any cords out of your way when playing, and makes it hard to unplug them by mistake. A lot of the hardware on this guitar appears to be Bubinga, giving the guitar a nice, natural look.
Exc. Condition. This bass is in nice shape. The top is clean, there are no marks on the neck and the fretboard has no wear. There are a few scrapes on the back but nothing major.
Carved luthite body with extended upper horn. Maple neck with radiused Ebony fretboard. Single "Might Mite" pickup. One volume knob, 3-band equalizer and "slap" switch. All parts and electronics are in great working condition.
This is a nice bass for the price. There is a lot of tonal options you can get using the 3-band equalizer and "slap" switch. Setup well and ready to play.

The refinish, even though it isn't a standard color, was done very well. The guitar body was not overly sanded, it has no file marks in the wood, etc. The wood was then singed with a torch, to give the brown "flame" coloring, then clear finish was applied. There is some belt buckly wear into the wood at back coverplate area. It feels great, with medium weight and good balance, good resonance.
