The Grunter 5 string bass #36 - Sold - Special order
Solid Mahogany with wide string spacing [18mm at the bridge] Plenty of room for finger style playing and this one is set up with a low action for fast legato playing. Awe inspiring thump with plenty of clang if you want it courtesy of the Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pickups. The neck is thin front to back and has a nice racy feel. The spacing at the nut is wide much like a P bass. The controls are set up like a J bass.

From Adam the owner: "The Grunter feels and sounds fantastic it's awesome and I couldn't be happier.
