    5 string fretless with maple inlayed lines. AMAZING BASS! Had this bass for 5 years and it plays and sounds GREAT! There are no scratches, dents, etc... In great shape!

    I got the bass new about 7 years ago and it was my main bass for a few years before settling onto a fretted bass. It has just been sitting in the case for about 3 years now and needs a good home. There are no dings, nicks, scratches, dents, etc... it is still in amazing basically perfect condition. It comes with a hard-shell gator case

    The wood on the top is figured anigre
    The fingerboard is mac ebony
    The neck is 5-pc maple purpleheart neck
    The body is 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

    Comes with Hardshell case!

    These basses go for $4000-4500 new!

    Please let me know if you have any questions, or would like to see anymore pictures

    THANKS!


    $2000 OBO

    Sorry I think the only trade I would be interested in is an Hofner of some kind. However, I would prefer $

    Thanks!

    Ok y'all this is just a stupid cheap price for this bass. Pete is one of the best builders out there and his fretless basses just sing. Add $1k to this price and it would still be a deal! I'd snap it up but I have two already. Somebody buy this!

    so it has EMG pickups but the East preamp?

    The knobs look like Pete's original array for the EMG preamp.

    The Nut width is 48mm, the preamp is an East Preamp and it pairs very well with the EMG pickups.

    just an FYI,
