I have a friend selling an Afterburner 5 string. not sure of the year it was made but he bought it used around 2005.. it has scalloped frets.. I'm thinking about buying it, what can you tell me about it? here's a few pics.

Scalloped frets! Crazy! I can't tell you much other than it would be likely 2001 or later. Likely FD1 pickups. Likely a push/pull on the tone control for the bluEQube. I can tell by the photo that the body is soft maple. That's about it.

Off the wall question Sheldon: I've seen scallops on other basses, but not wallowed out evenly between frets. What affect would this have on the stability of the neck, if anything?

I'd like to know that info before I buy it... Thanks!

Ironically the business started out with scalloped guitar necks. However we've never scalloped a bass neck. This would have been done after the fact. I can't comment on how it would affect things without seeing it in person. I recommend having Bob Pinto take a look at it. Last contact info I have on him is Bob's Guitar Hospital 732-747-6795

Thanks! I still haven't seen the bass in person... so I'll know more after that. I want to get the serial number so I you can tell me a more exact build date and details.
