Finished 5-String Ergo Bass....and it's 4 Sale!

A beautifully crafted 5-string Ergo bass cloud guitar crafted by Jesse O'Neal.

The first one to send $1999 + $35 shipping in the Continental US gets it! I'll even throw in the extra groovy turqoise studded 2.5" padded leather strap.. It should fit right into any standard bass guitar gig bag (not included)
DiMarzio Ultra Jazz pickups.. My all time personal favorite- The pickups are rather close together, which is bound to cause comment- The neck pickup is in exactly the same spot as the neck pickup of a Fender Jazz, and the bridge pickup is in the Rickenbacker bridge spot.. That's my personal favorite- It's simply the funkiest 'sweet spot' to put a pickup on a bass guitar.
3 piece Mahogany/Black Walnut/Mahogany set neck, maple fingerboard, stainless steel frets, 2 way truss rod, zero fret, brass nut, 1-23/32" nut width
2 piece mahogany body, cream appointments, chrome hardware- 500k volume, Fender TBX Tone Control, 3 way Gibson style toggle pickup selector. Through body stringing obviously, I varied the shape here- I'm not sure what the general consensus is regarding varying Charles Fox's original design, but for me, this looks, and certainly feels much more like a 'bass'- This most certainly isn't a criticism, but I'd rather this be looked at as 'variations on a theme' rather than 'tribute', or 'copy', or whatever people come up with to critique.
