What is the main difference between the two Prima models except for body shape? I have the opportunity to achieve an older - not very old, but older - Prima 5 string...

Guess it depends on how far back you go...the pickups may be different, the pre-amp may be different (aguilar vs. glock). Neck construction, tuners, wood selection. All-in-all, none of that matters if you like the way it sounds and plays. I have an 'older' one (6 or 7 yrs), and have no interest at all in changing it. It was 'perfect' then, and remains so now... :D

I kinda compare the older Prima Voodoo to the current Z1. While the older Primas were nice (fit, finish, some even with fancy backs as well), the current Prima models are even above and beyond with more unique finishes, matching headstocks, wood knobs, matching pickup covers, etc. I had an older Prima Voodoo with bartolini pickups, black headstock, and volume adjust for each pickup (instead of 4 position selector). It was nice, but I played my ABIIs more and eventually sold it. So like reddavid said - all depends what you like.

It isn't that old, still have the old body shape. Dual density body and fancy top and back. Not too bad, eh...?

[quote="NaH":3iimh8d5]Sorta like this? [attachment=0:3iimh8d5]VoodooPrima5bsmall.JPG[/attachment:3iimh8d5][/quote:3iimh8d5] Yep! But with a dual density body core and active electronics. The "signature" bridge too. Otherwise more or less the same thing. Top and back wood is like some mahogany-ish red/brown, but with clear straight grain. A very delicate wood. Here is a bad picture of the back: [img:3iimh8d5]http://basschat.co.uk/uploads/monthly_09_2015/post-20945-0-70519600-1441954431.jpg[/img:3iimh8d5]

It was a nice looking bass, but the owner made up his mind to keep it (now when I've sold a couple of basses to get it). The struggle and hunt continues... :evil: :|

Walnut was going to be my other guess.

Well, since the first bass all of a sudden was unavailable, I bought me this one instead: [img:3adlxydf]http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Prima_Artist_6_files/primafront.jpg[/img:3adlxydf] Prima six string 2001...
