Tune Custom Shop Casiopea Bass 2015

TUNE Casiopea, built in their Korea-based custom shop, 2015. TUNE have a long history of making extremely high quality guitars and basses for a small but dedicated following. This is a proper high-end bass. You get all the deluxe hardware: Bartolini pickups, a sweet active pre-amp with a three-way cut/boost EQ, high-mass bridge, luxury Gotoh tuners... it's all high-class stuff. The slim 5-piece maple/walnut neck is perfectly slim and lightning-quick; it's a precision-weapon for a discerning player; and the ebony board is superbly smooth under the fingers. The walnut top is a stunning piece, it's got some stunning grain on full display under the gloss clear finish; the tight;y grained mahogany body is on show on the back... it's all class. The tone on offer is very customisable and very articulate and precise, but with a heap of growl and body attached. If you're after a top-notch bass that'll easily switch from jazz to funk to metal in a normal working week, this will do it with ease!

Model: TUNE Custom Shop Casiopea
Made: Korea, 2015 (best estimate, serial 15001)
Finish: natural walnut burl, gloss
Body: mahogany, walnut top
Weight: 3.8kg approx
Neck: 5-piece maple/walnut with ebony board, dot inlays
Mods: none
Controls: volume, pickup balance, treble boost/cut, mid boost/cut, bass boost/cut
Pickups: Bartolini Tune-branded active pickups and pre-amp
Case: On-Stage semi-hard case, excellent quality and condition

Cosmetic condition notes: minor finish wear. There's a couple of extremely minor dings; one on the neck, one on the top horn, one near the bottom edge; aside from that there's some minor scuffs on the electronics cover and some very minor pitting on the gold hardware. Overall: excellent condition (9/10)

Playing condition notes: action is low, intonation is good, truss rod works. All electronics tested and working properly. Frets have some barely-noticeable wear, 9/10 for life left. Smooth!
