  1. Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray "Old Smoothie" #0856
    $1,999.00

    I cannot believe it's been 40 years since Music Man released the Stingray Bass. That makes me feel old...really old. I was quite impressed when they first came out. The Stingray was a giant leap forward for the bass market. The '76 Fender basses were not cutting the mustard, and this gave bass players something they could sink their teeth into. This is a faithful reproduction, called the "Old Smoothie" because it sounds and looks smooth as silk. Music Man went all out to reproduce this classic bass. It's got the right pickup, the right neck profile, the right frets, the right finish, and the right sound. It's the right bass for you.

  3. Sadowsky MV5 5-String - 3-Tone Sunburst #9702
    $2,865.00

    "The fundamental difference between the MetroLine and NYC line is the MetroLine feaures solid bodies, while the NYC instruments featuure chambered bodies and custom-order options. Roger Sadowsky"  There it is, straight from the horse's mouth.  We just got one of the new MetroLine Sadowsky basses in, and is very impressive indeed.  This one is so light, but it is a solid body, with an ash body and five string maple neck.  It has a beautiful sunburst finish, looks great and sounds incredible.  These are built in Japan under Sadowsky's exacting standards.  As I said earlier, this is a very light weight instrument - only 8 pounds 10 ounces.  Comes with gig style hardcase.

  6. USED 1963 Gretsch 6070 Country Gentleman Hollowbody Bass
    $1,799.00

    Here's a super cool bass that you don't see very often. We have a 1963 Gretsch 6070 Country Gentleman hollow body bass. Featues one single Gretsch Supertron pickup. This is a great sounding bass, perfect for blues, jump blues, jazz, rock, anything you want. The neck feel has a similar profile to an upright bass: BIG and full, and it has that upright bass thump too, even when it's plugged in. Just so cool. Now the downside: it has the typical vintage Gretsch binding issues, which means it's going brittle and crumbling. The previous owner says the binding hasn't changed in the last 20 years, and it does appear to be stable. If it were mine, I would leave the binding alone. It certainly doesn't affect the sound or playability. The finish is original...everything is original for that matter. We are selling it as-is regarding cosmetic issues, but we guarantee that the bass works and plays fine. The frets are in good shape. This bass has had flatwound strings on it its entire life, so the fingerboard is in fine shape. The bass player for the Sons Of Champlin played a bass just like this at the Human Be In in San Francisco, so there's that. There is no case and no stand post.

  7. hold - G&L ASAT Bass - Red Metal Flake w/ Matching Neck/Headstock #9374
    $4,003.00 Click for price

    Leo Fender spent his life creating incredible, world famous inventions that we all love. At G&L Guitars, Leo refined his classic designs, further improving them, year after year. The ASAT Bass is great representation of what Leo achieved! You are looking a G&L bass that is, without a doubt, the coolest one we've ever seen. It's also one of the rarest and most unique. This bass has some options never before done by G&L on one of their basses. While they've offered metal flake finishes for bodies, they have not done metal flake on the entire neck, back, and headstock. That combined with neck and double body binding looks amazing. This is also the first bass neck to be built with vintage frets, a cool option that gives it a vintage 60's P-Bass feel.

    Overall, this is a very special bass, one that any player will find thrilling. It has it all: handmade quality, and innovative and refined design in hardware and electronics. It is comfortable, easy to play, loaded with sound possibilities, and looks awesome. It's completely modern yet oozes vintage history and tradition. You can't help but love it!

    The foundation of the ASAT Bass is a pair of G&L Magnetic Field Design humbuckers backed by the flexible Tri-Tone control system, providing the sort of versatility that’ll let you find your tone no matter what kind of bass line you’re laying down. The Tri-Tone system features a trio of mini toggles for pickup selection, series/parallel signal routing and active/passive operation, as well as a trio of knobs for volume, treble and bass. With all that under the hood, Leo gave the ASAT Bass the kind of chops that’ll fit in any situation, from classic R&B to power-packed rock to poppin’ funk. What’s more, the ASAT Bass features an innovative Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. On the other end is a comfortable, C-shaped neck checking in with a comfortable 12" radius and 21 Jescar 57110 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets ready to deliver silky playability.

    $3,284.00 Click for price

    If one were to imagine a 5 string bass built in the 1970's, the picture would look much like the Classic Stingray 5. The Classic Stingray 5 pays tribute to the original Music Man bass designs from the mid to late 1970's with added modern refinements. String-through body bridge, mute kit, small profile nickel frets and a curvy 7.5" radius neck are key specifications that harken back to the early days of Music Man production. A modern six bolt neck attachment and an easy access truss rod adjustment wheel ensure solid construction with no hassle adjustments.

  12. Fodera Emperor 5 Standard Classic - Ash #057C
    $5,850.00

    The Emperor 5 Standard Classic features the very best of over 30 years of building experience in an instrument that blends the tone, playability and pro-player reliability bass players have come to expect from Fodera with a more traditional look that will be at home on any stage. Hand-selected Alder or Ash bodies, quarter-sawn 3-pc Rock Maple necks, with Birdseye Maple or Indian Rosewood fingerboards delivers classic tonal combinations, while a PLEK’d compound-radius fingerboard provides the effortless playability Fodera has become known for. Add to that the powerful sustain and resonance from our fully adjustable, custom designed, bell-brass bridge, and the Emperor 5 Standard Classic delivers the look and feel you’ll only get from a hand-crafted Fodera bass.

    The Emperor 5 Standard Classic features a set of our Fodera/Duncan dual-coil pickups and the Fodera/Pope Standard Preamp with 3-band EQ. Designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan, our passive Dual Coil pickups were designed to provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Compared to an active soapbar style pickup, the tone is warmer and more organic. Wired in parallel, these pickups offer a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight yet come with the added flexibility of full single-coil operation providing the snap, warmth, and mid-range punch of classic single-coil Jazz Bass pickups. Designed for optimal performance, our 3-band Fodera/Pope preamp offers an incredibly low noise flow, a very musical sounding EQ, and active/passive operation for the utmost reliability and flexibility whether you’re on stage or in the studio. Together, these electronics let you tailor your tone, from deep and round to bright and punchy and everything in between.
