Robert S. 5 string E-C bass

This bass is for a new customer who liked the M5 basses I used to build.  The bass is stock except that we are using my deep inset neck method rather than the conventional neck/heel joint.  This allows access to the higher frets without touching the body.  Tempered Maple neck, Ebony fret board, 33 inch scale, Swamp Ash body topped with Claro Walnut.  We will be adding a ramp between the pickups and a Coda custom inlay at the 12th and on the ramp.  We are using 4 string blade style pickups as the spacing is going to be narrow on this bass.  black hardware.
