    Bought this here back in the Spring of this year from it's original owner. Fantastic bass, but I'm just not 'connecting' with her like I thought I would. Beautiful Koa neckthrough, active 2-band preamp with then-optional passive midrange control, J99A pickups, Hipshot detuner, Wilkinson bridge, Dunlop straplocks, original tweed HSC, and all adjustment tools and even the original Carvin cleaning cloth.
    Would like to trade for another fretless, but something more traditional and with passive electronics.
    Thinking about-
    Jazz Bass Special
    Japanese Jazz Bass
    Possibly something Yamaha with a P/J pickup config.
    Only active electronic fretless I would care for is an Ibanez Musician or RB from the mid '80s
    Unlined boards only for all above mentioned, as well as anything else considered.
    A couple of fretted bass comes to mind-SBMM Ray35, but only with maple fretboard.
    CIJ Geddy Lee Jazz (had one, miss it terribly!) Black or sunburst-not picky
    A sweet Jazz Bass Special would be awesome too!!!

    Don't Fear The Fretless bump! Not limited to what I have listed, but that is a general idea of what I'm looking for. Although a sweet Geddy Jazz would trump all, hit me with something. Someone wants this sweet BB fretless!

    Also, not really sure why I put this up as a feeler. I am certain I want to trade her for something sweet.

    Asked if I would sell. I suppose I would. Paid $650.00 shipped right here back in the Spring. Would like to see the same for it., but I will listen to offers. Nothing about it's condition has changed. Freshly strung with DR Lowriders 45-105. Trade or sale, come and get it!!!
