The heart of this bass, is the Tempered (roasted) Quartered Maple neck, and for tone, stability, and looks, it is hard to beat. The 34 inch scale fretboard is Madagascar Rosewood with narrow stainless steel frets. The peghead is painted to match the body color. 5 neck bolts with recessed ferrules. Dual action truss rod and carbon fiber stabilization bars. Luminlay side dots are 3mm and glow blue.  Wax finish on the neck for a nice natural feel with no stickiness.

The body is of Tempered (roasted) Alder. Not much to it other than the beautiful Surf Green lacquer finish. Unfortunately, my camera and background make the bass look white in pictures, but the color is an accurate Surf Green.  The first picture is closer to showing the true color.  Under the pickguard, I have cored out some wood to remove some weight

The balance is nice and the tone is so sweet. Acoustically and in passive mode, this bass has a lot of the tone of my 64 Jazz has.   With the preamp engaged, the bass has an increased output and the two band boost only preamp allows for adjustments.  The tone control works even when Preamp is engaged.

Under the red tort pickguard, are the Aguilar 60’s voiced AG5P and AG J/HC pickups. The pickups on this bass are mounted via machine screws into brass inserts.

A Sadowsky brand plate mounted preamp gives the bass extra life and is well voiced for the bass. 9 volt battery is easy to replace via the small cover on the back of the bass, held on by machine screws.

Nut width is 1.75 inches, 19mm spacing at the Hipshot B style bridge (aluminum tray). Dunlop strap gear, Hipshot Lolly pop style Ultra-lite tuners, 4 string retainer, and a black Tsuq nut. 9.2 pounds on my certified scale
