I built this bass a few years ago, and it was my first and only 5-stringer.
Body: Black Korina
Neck: Maple with Pau Ferro FB and Ebony Gecko Inlay, 6115 Stainless Fretwire (AFAIK, the first bass ever to have stainless frets!)
Hardware: All Black Hipshot (Style A Bridge, Ultralite Tuners, O-Ring Knobs)
Pickup: Bartolini 74mm Triple-Coil, Deep Voicing
Preamp: Aguilar OBP-1 2-band @ 18 volts
Controls: Master Volume, Treble, Bass. 5-Way 4-pole switch (Both Coils Series, Neck Coil Full/50% bridge coil, Neck Coil Solo, Bridge Coil Solo)
Using the dummy coil in the pickup and the 4-pole 5-way switch, I made every coil combination hum-cancelling. The wiring diagram for this made my head hurt. :sad:
