Built for and shown at NAMM 2014 - I'm its only owner. This bass has been gigged a handful of times and was primarily used at home in a non-smoking environment. This is a unique build with a quilted maple front and a reclaimed redwood back - finished in high gloss translucent black. This NS-5XL has more a of a midrange presence than the usual solid maple 5XL. It also feels a bit lighter - right around 10 lbs. Very fast and easy neck.
As a bonus I will include an extra EMG 40J jazz pickup. This can be easily installed with the quick connect cable from the bass - no soldering required. Using this in the neck position gives the bass a more biting sound.
