I'm looking for a Balance or Balance K shaped 5 string with the signature (Mark King) electronics. I do not require a deluxe level instrument, standard is fine. My arthritis is getting worse, and I would like to get one extraordinary bass while I can still play. Playability trumps all, including sound and look. :-)

peace,

jim

I don't have a bass to offer but some advice, I would seriously look into Hot/Cold treatment, I had serious problems with my hands years ago, and have healed without operations, I'm a sheet-metal worker by trade, so you can imagine that coupled with practicing hours a day the kind of damage to my hands. best of luck=) B.

Bumping once more, as I have about 5K to spend. Let's move sound up a notch though to equal playability ;) I want to grab something soon, and would prefer an Alembic over a Fodera E5S if I can get one.

Thanks, I received a few emails in the last day or two (been busy with hockey, sorry!) and will reply to all shortly. Please let me know if you've got any interest in a trade as well, as I have a few basses up in the other section :-)
