F Bass (fretless)For sale/trade
Hey guys! Well...I just can't do a damn fretless like I thought. I love the tone, but I'm not that good at it. LOL. I'm too used to being a fretted player and much prefer it. So this sucker is up for sale or trade.
I literally just got this less than two weeks ago.
Quote from one of the previous owners (hope you don't mind swpyne)
"This is a very beautiful 1987 F Bass fretless 5 string with neck-through construction. It's also a 34" scale which is rare for these basses.
It sports passive electronics with custom F Bass pickups. Simple Vol/Vol/Tone with coil tap switch. Ebony board with fret position hash marks and pearl dots from the octave up.
The bass originally had a different bridge but George installed the current bridge and modified it to allow it to be strung through the body. The finish is a very beautiful nitro teal green that is quite hard to photograph accurately."
Sales price is
Previous owners pics for now and I'll get my own up once the clouds clear. :)
Since this is a higher end bass, I'd like one back for a trade. So here's my interests 4 or 5 strings prefered.
MTD 435, 535
Roscoe's (plus cash depending on what you have)
Mike Lull (same as above)
Vintage Fender Jazz
Elrick (depending on the model)
I'm also open to offers.
Inside pics. The first one is with a flash, the rest without. Sorry if a couple are a tiny bit blurry. My camera works better with the flash, but I wanted to try and truly capture the color. This one is a stunner IMO. Just played it too and am already second guessing myself. LOL
Kind of blurry. Sorry
love that board
I spent a bunch of cash having George refurbish this beauty only to let it go in a moment of weakness. I'd consider buying it back but I'm overextended at the moment and can't.
That said I must also say that this is an exceptional and pretty rare F Bass. It is a thing of beauty and it almost plays itself. By far the easiest playing fretless 5 string I have ever come across.
Here are some additional photos of this very sexy bass:
So I gave it another week and this bass is amazing. Truly amazing. I still feel like the fretless thing is a bit out of my knowledge base right now though. I may revisit it later on but for now, still for sale/trade.
F this Bass
It's a super cool bass. Keep going man!!!
Would you be interested in a trade I have a Sadowsky Metro-5 if so my name is Joe phone# 216-659-7030 thx.
Price dropped $100 bucks! That's as low as I'll go on this bass. If it doesn't sell, I'm just going to keep it.
Still here. Waiting on a few offers or responses. Also have a semi solid offer I'm considering. It's time to make a decision. I know it. One more day bump then I'm PMing everyone back.
