serial dates it to 2006 i believe 4**9 virtually mint cond. all original comes with DW gigbag typical superficial fretwear 8 LBS alder/maple top/wenge FB/maple neck no issues passive electronics-sounds awesome selling for a couple reasons: my Super P gets most of the playing time i am recovering from two carpal tunnel surgeries back to back and i suspect the scale length of this bass will be an issue on my long road to recovery i am joebar on talkbass and have perfect FB over there. i have bought and sold a couple basses on here this past year-ask for references. i am looking for $1850 shipped in CAN (money order please); local face to face sale gets $75 off (i am in Vancouver B.C.) not in a hurry to sell-PM me for phone number to chat.

That bass is on my wish list but it has come up too soon. I have a 6-string version of that. It has gorgeous tone but I'm more comfortable with 5 strings. And I'm in Canada, too. Agony. I hope it finds a good home.

Bummer that you had to let her go, but I'm glad that it was a quick sale. Good luck in your recovery, Joe!

The sixer is nestled snugly in my studio, enjoying her first winter in snow in who knows how long. I keep her warm as best I can, but she's used to more tropical climes. Poor thing. Jokes aside, it still remains the best bass I've personally played. One odd thing I've noted is that it holds its tuning incredibly well, despite the change of seasons and non-locking tuners. This is not a make-or-break factor in an instrument, obviously, but the ability to hold string tension is a hallmark of quality construction. Everything about the instrument continues to impress me, though I do find myself occasionally frustrated with the difficulty associated with upper-fret chording. I expected that, though, so it's a no-harm, no-foul sort of thing. As an aside, I've noticed that there haven't been any more ABI/ABZ sixers on the used market since this one, so I'm doubly glad that I was able to grab it when I did. Hope all's well on your end, Earle! And Joe, I do hope you're able to hold on to that Super P. The shorter scale length should be easier on your hands, once they regain strength and mobility.

nope- every player needs a P-bass in his arsenal and i love this thing to pieces; found out from someone that it is a very special bass for reasons i will keep to myself i use it almost exclusively in my new band; it just works. the shorter scale is perfect for my hands. yeah good for you for buying that bass-they are as rare as gold. DW`s are very stable neck-wise; mine rarely need tuning.
