FS/FT: Charles Cote Jazz Fretless
I got this in trade and I have had some fun with it. Like every other time I try to incorporate a fretless into my playing, I just never play them enough to feel comfortable. So this is sitting. I was going to put a fretted neck on the body but I have other things I need to spend money on so this needs a new home.
Here are the Deets:
Body: lightweight Alder (very resonant)
Finish: Sherwood Green with pearloid pickguard (WD brand)
Neck: 1.5 at the nut and a very fast jazz neck shape, I like the shape , kind of reminds me of the Modulus VJ's that I have had.
Fingerboard: Unlined RW that has been impregnated with a material that hardens the wood. Very pretty in color, only scratches on the fingerboard, nothing bad at all
Pups: Fralin jazz and they sound absolutely killer
bridge: Badass II
Tuners: Hipshot UL
Full Disclosure: Lots of finish checking on the sides near the neck pocket and a few little dings here and there. If you like the relic thing then it's cool but if you want a durable finish, this is not it. Personally, if I keep it, I'm going to have it relic'd a little more and throw a fretted neck on it. It sounds great.
Trades: I'd take a Fender Hwy 1 jazz, a MIJ Fender '62 body (jazz or precision), REDDI, Genz nx112 or $525.00 plus shipping OBO. I think it's worth more than that if I part it out.
**I will sell just the neck if anyone is interested**
That is so cool! My green (oil stain) fretted Cote Continuum is one of my main players (and the bass I plan to take to the grave). Charles made killer necks for these. $525 is an amazingly low asking price. GLWTS. This bass needs to be played!
I assume the neck and body are Fender fit compatible?
I may keep this if I find the right fretted neck... This is a really nice bass..bump.
Kind of hoping I find the right neck for this bass and then keep it. Still here for now. Bump.
If I find a fretted neck for this bass, it stays but for now I'll bump it. could use a Genz 112 cab for rehearsals, maybe some MXR bass pedals (bass overdrive, compressor). Quality gig bag..
If you do find a fretted neck for it and you want to sell the fretless neck shoot me a message.
Last bump I'll sell just the loaded neck for $350 OBO. I can probably use the body. bump for now.
last bump before part out...
Charles Cote Unlined Fretless neck AWESOME!
gonna part out my Cote. It was offered at a special price for the whole bass but now gonna try to part out. $350 shipped for the neck which is very fast (think fast '62 shape). I'll leave the hipshot UL's on it and the string tree. $350 shipped to CONUS. paypal ok.
No trades, need money.
