    honestly, this is the best fretless i have ever owned or played....I just don't play fretless that much anymore and it deserves a good home. Basses come and go, I bought this bass in the 90's if that tells you anything about it. The B is probably the best i have ever heard on a 34" scale bass period....deadly. Very expressive with awesome sustain and fundamental clarity.not to mention lots of POOP!
    This is the exact same model, same specs that Me'shell Ndegeocello uses. Here is a link to her review of her bass.

    http://www.surinebasses.com/reviews.php#

    Here are the specs:

    34" scale
    Mohagany body
    Maple neck w/ purpleheart stringers
    lined Cocobolo fingerboard with pearl dots
    dual truss rods
    Bartolini pickups and 2 band pre-amp
    Wilkinson bridge
    hipshot tuners
    light - I'd guess 8 - 8.5 lbs (scale stopped working)

    These basses are over $4000 new. I am asking $2000 usd
    No trades please
