Fantastic modern Jazz style bass guitar in extremely good condition. Colour is Black Flame (looks a bit purple in pics). Tonally has  lots of bottom end thump and good harmonics.This is one of the higher spec models licensed under the Tanglewood name; these are very good quality instruments at realistic prices.(Overwater UK basses start around £2500). Some light hairline scratches on the back, but nothing blatant. Fret-wear is negligible; neck and fingerboard are in A1 condition. Best sounding bass I've owned, BUT I've been after something lighter and recently bought an Ibanez SR Premium; now I need to sell something to pay for it. In my opinion this bass will tonally destroy most basses in this price bracket and many basses costing much more. Blows my Ibanez away TBH, but the Ibanez only weighs 7lbs, so it stays!

Active 2-band EQ, and bright switch (activated by pulling the volume knob out) to allow you to dial in your sweet-spot bass tone

There were 2 of these for sale recently online, at popular musical instrument shops. One was £560 2nd hand and the other £650 list price (but sold), just to give an idea of the value of these beasts! Supplied with a hard ABS case

TRADES...would consider a 32" scale bass,9lbs or less and of similar value and quality....
