    This is a fretless 4-string Carvin BB70F from 1992 or 1993. The "Bunny Brunel" model.

    • 5 piece neck-through body with Koa body wings.
    • Traditional 2+2 headstock with matched Koa.
    • Unlined ebony fingerboard
    • Hipshot X-Tender detuner.
    • Straplocks.
    • Wilkinson bridge for super fast string changes.
    • Active J/J pickups.
    • Active preamp with 3-band eq.

    Includes original tweed hardshell case. (Case is somewhat roadworn but fully functional. Call it "mojo".)

    The bass does have a few scratches and such. See photos.

    It's a really nice bass, but I no longer play fretless and do not anticipate returning to it.

    I'm asking [DEL]$700[/DEL]
    GAS SALE $$645 OBO via paypal including CONUS shipping. I'm wide open to working something out with anyone interested in this bass!

    Considering any trades on this one? I'd love a fretless BB to go with my fretted BB75

    Open to trades. Worst I can say is no, and maybe laugh.
    Not interested in 5's, fretlesses, or P styles. Probably would only be interested in stuff that would require additional cash from me:
    G&L L2000/M2000/JB2, Lakland DJ4/DD/JO4/, maybe a Fender Geddy Lee Jazz. Plus/minus cash as appropriate.

    Whether or not you're joking, this is an amazing idea! Free bump to encourage more sellers to offer this! I might try the same... Seriously great idea. Right, married guys?

    Hah, glad you like it. Totally serious offer, even if it's amusing! We gotta do everything we can to keep our spouses happy, right?
