It'a beautiful metallic copper color, sort of maroonish. It's hard to photograph because it's highly reflective so it picks up reflections from everything in the room.
Like many of the Aguilar Artist Loft basses, it is in mint, like new condition, and has never been privately owned.
It has an alder body with clear pickguard, and maple neck and fingerboard.
Pickups: Aguilar Hum Canceling Jazz
Preamp: Aguilar OBP-3
Scale length: 35" (I had to measure it to believe it was 35", it feels like 34")
Weight: 9 lbs. 15 oz.
Soame basses are artisan built in Argentina.
The build quality, feel and tone are on par with other premium jazz basses in the $4,000 to $6,500 range like Sadowsky, Devon, MTD, Spector, etc.
