FS – EBMM 25th 5HH BFR – Solid Rosewood Neck

Post by damo1304 » 20 Mar 2018, 23:13

An incredible bass. Jaw dropping quilted maple top. Punchy with incredible sustain. Piano-like clarity and the low B is really something to behold. The sliky smooth rosewood neck is a dream to play.

Built in 2009 as part of a special run of 25 x 25th Anniversary models made under Ball Family Reserve with solid rosewood necks with 12 x 4 string and 13 x 5 string with various pickup configurations. Only 2 of those ended up in Australia (a 4HH and a 5HH). Impeccable build quality and the results show in the tone of the finished product.

A versatile array of tones can be pulled as the bass can be run in Passive or Active (18V preamp with a 4 band EQ) as well as the pickups set to run in Series or Parallel.

I’ve been the only owner. It is in immaculate condition and comes with a Ball Family Reserve certificate of authenticity and an EBMM 25th anniversary case.

I’ll leave Ed Friedland to demonstrate the maple neck version of this bass.

Have had trouble loading pics with photobucket, so I’ve used the pics that Colin at Guitar Planet put up on the Ernie Ball Forum in 2010 (that I took and sent him when the bass arrived in my hands).

This is an incredible instrument and the opportunity to own one of these is not likely to come up again. Extremely rare with only 5 x 5HH BFR versions made (2 x flamed maple, 3 x quilt maple).

Price is $4200 looking for a cash sale, however there is a chance that I’ll consider trade + cash scenario on Sadowsky or Fender with active PJ pickup config.

Happy to answer any q’s

Cheers
