That five-string S2: Just kill me now, Thank God I don't have 7500 bucks.

But that Europa Five for $2500 OBO is an utter steal, and really so is the other. Run a dupe on the Quote Generator if you need to check your blood pressure !

Running a bass through the quote generator will have much more damaging effects on everyone once Mica gets the price hikes installed. That five-string is a beauty. I do love the old large body basses, and it is a sharp one for sure. I do have the money, but I gots bigger fish to fry coming up soon! The revamping of my first love. I am finally going to break all the rules and forget the cost and just go with what I really want. Financially, I would be much better off buying the fiver, but when done, spiritually, and just for self-satisfaction, I will be much better off upgrading my favorite old bass.

Wow that surely is a lovely Europa......... hmmmm

Have Europa's suddenly become fashionable these days?
A few members seem to be recent buyers of them both new and used.

Guys I live about an hour and half from that Europa and I was going to check it out because I lust for a 5&6 string to go with my 4 the guy never returned my call hmmm..... How were europas ever not fashionable jazzy??? Personally I've been drooling over them for 19 years and im32! The only thing I hate is the price! But I've never played a 5 or a6 and if the B string sounds like my Úlan I'll cry. I've always hated just that string everything else is awesome. So I stick to the 4 string models and I've been very happy.

I have a couple of Europa 5's one thats all maple like an elan and the B string sounds great. No problems at all with the sound or feel of it.

The guy that owned the Europa is a guitar player and sound engineer. I was told the Europa has not been gigged with in about 10 years and preety much stayed in it's case the entire time. Talk about bad timing when I saw the add. I had to sell a lot of hunting gear on Craigslist (can't hunt anymore anyways) before I could buy it. I actually sold enough equipment the same day I called the guy and bought the Euopa the next day. I am naming her Destiny!!!
