    Easily one of the coolest basses I've ever owned.
    Here's the thread where I just got it...
    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/1980-carl-thompson-fretless-1005017/

    There's wear along the E string and some below the G string. Trussrod cover has been found along with original bridge. Otherwise this is in pretty nice shape, plays and sounds great. Trying to juggle some things to keep this but that's not really working out so far.
    $4400 with hard shell case. Price includes shipping in the CONUS, certified check/ money order preferred.

    Okay, I'll trade my unfinished wishbass, and maybe some cash on your end for this.:D

    Bump, such evil temptation.
