Body Type: GUITAR Model:

El Capitan C-5

String Configuration: 5 Style: ACOUSTIC ELECTRIC
Dexterity: Right-Handed
I am continuing the sale of Musical instruments and gear that had been stored in the back room of a closed music store . This is a NEW OLD STOCK Epiphone 5 string acoustic electric bass. These 5 string versions were made in the 1990's they are no longer produced and very difficult to find. The retail tag on this was $669.00... It is beautiful solid maple not a veneer .nice stripe down the back  and bound body.  It has on board electronics which I tested and they work perfectly. There is a EQ on the side. Sorry I forgot to take a pic of it. The neck is straight I believe an ebony or dyed rosewood fretboard looks more like ebony to me, No fretware as it is NEW OLD STOCK.. I am a guitarist but the bass seems easy to play.  I have been starting these instruments at $99.00 with no reserves and allowing you to help them find their level.  I found it in a box and as the box fits I am going to pack and ship it in the box there is no case. Shipping on this will be by weight and size of box. USA only  any questions  just e-mail  This will make a welcome addition to anyone that likes an acoustic bass guitar and wants a 5 string.  My friend is a well known pro bass player so I showed him this bass. After trying it out  he expressed that  'this is a very nice instrument, it would likely work well for bluegrass or folk music. not loud enough for rock,  Its medium loud not a boomer." he also said it has 'good balance" So I thought I might add a bassist perspective. I found only one other 5 string version of this bass but not in maple it fetched $440 used. The 4 string ones seem to bring in the $300-450 range in used condition. It is highly unlikely to see a new old stock one again these have not been produced in more than 10 years.
