Available for sale is a wonderful 4-string fretless bass from Bee Basses!!! Asking price:
shipped CONUS and Canada
Here is a demo clip from Bee Basses of a very similar 5-string (same pickup and nearly the same woods): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCBipDYyL08
Check out the specs:
Model: Groove Bee, 4 string fretless
Scale: 34 inch
Body: Phillipine mahogany
Neck: Douglas fir with diamondwood reinforcements
Fingerboard: Diamondwood (nigh-indestructible synthetic wood, similar tone to ebony), extended range goes up to 33rd-34th position
Pickup: Delano xTender quad-coil (passive)
Bridge: Hipshot adjustable 18-19mm spacing
Controls: Volume, tone, coil switch (single/series/parallel)
This bass would be around $2350 new (you can look at www.beebasses.com/pricing.html
- the extended fingerboard and reinforced neck are the extra options above the base 4-string price). The bass comes with a generic hard-shell case (note: case has some cosmetic wear).
The bass is in nearly perfect condition (one owner; purchased directly from the luthier, light home use, never gigged). Never dropped or bumped, no dings or scratches anywhere. It's a VERY comfortable bass (super thin neck, super low action) and it basically plays itself. Growls like crazy at the lightest touch. This is a top of the line instrument for a modest price!
