    I just picked this up here from the one and only Rufus Philpot. Alas, it turns out that I am an unlined fretless guy, so I am looking to sell this one to pay for the one I just ordered from Carvin.

    This bass has all kinds of upgrades and plays super smooth. It is in the exact condition as I got it. It did not come with a case, so I have none to offer, but it will be packed well and fully insured.

    I am asking what I paid for it which is $825 SHIPPED via USPS Money Order or other cash-type transaction; Local pickup is in the Los Angeles/SFV area. This bass, with it's upgraded top, hardware and preamp would run you ~$1,500 from Carvin (I priced it out).

    edit: limited number of trades willl be considered, but must have:
    5 strings
    at least 18mm spacing (unless it's a Sterling or SUB type bass)
    maple board.

    Ideally, I'd like to net a some $$ on it, so I'd be looking to trade down.

    SOLD!!!

    Does this fretboard have that 'hard as nails' epoxy coating on it?

    Sorry for the delay. No, it does not have the Hard as Nails. It is Ebony and plenty tough!
