    Up for grabs ... a gorgeous boutique fretless that needs to be played!

    For those of you that know Pete's work, know his meticulous attention to detail and high quality. I acquired this bass because I needed a fretless for just a few gigs. I can't justify keeping this beauty in it's case. It's # 11 made and would cost approximately $5,000 if Pete made it today.

    Fretboard recently dressed by Pete, new hybrid strings installed and knobs replaced with ones that have a sleeker style.

    This puppy growls ... I wish I were a fretless player. Here are the details:

    Top:Figured Anigre
    Fingerboard: Mac Ebony
    Neck: 5-pc maple purpleheart neck
    Body: African Mahogany with a tone block of figured maples
    35" scale
    String spacing at the bridge is 18mm
    Weighs about 9.5 Ibs
    EMG Pickups
    Skjold/East - 3 Band Preamp

    The bass in really really nice condition. I'd call it a conservative 8/10. Only some light player wear on the back keeps it from being higher. No issues structurally at all! Neck, truss rod, electronics are all perfect.

    Looking for fretted fivers for trade, run any offers by me. Roscoe, Skjold, Smith, Zon ... 34" scale please.

    Trade value at $2,000. Sale priced to move quickly at $1750 shipped to lower 48.

    You bought a $5000 bass for "just a few gigs"? What?

    Super nice bass though!
