This is the craziest Italian handmade masterbuilt boutique 5-string concept bass that was owned & played by Megadeth founding member and world-famous bass player: David Ellefson. David sent this bass directly to our studio after meeting me in London backstage at the Wembley Arena show in January 2020 where I brought Dave Mustaine's guitar collection that was sold on Reverb back in November. He was kind enough to give us two of his tour-used Jackson signature basses and a bag of his killer signature coffe. These boutique instruments are extremely rare and are masterbuilt in Bologna, Italy. Brian May of Queen has two guitars from them. The highest quality components and construction are present on this hand-made, European instrument. There is a gecko/salamander inlay of the fretboard as well! USA EMG Pickups, Kluson tuners. Davie said he remembers getting this bass in Czech Republic, and it is obviously built intended for him as can be seen in the spec. If you want a rare, boutique custom shop bass designed for a master and owned by arguably the most famous bass player in metal...look no further! Comes with COA from the studio, letter from David and signed shipping documentation from when he sent it to us.
