I bought this beautiful, mint shape Epic V last week (Craigslist) and have noticed the neck is unique!?! The 5 maple pieces that make up the neck are very different in shades.

Also, this bass has been defretted, and has a beautiful flame walnut body front.

Would love to know the build order on this one.

many thank, Bruceepic v

Forgot that the original owner was in Maryland.

Maple can come in lots of beautiful and differing shades. The two darker pieces are a bookmatch, just like the outside pair.

I also noted in the file that the bass is fretless now.
