    Oh man - I've been wanting a solid fretless without breaking the bank. Found this today browsing the local CL.

    I had to sell my Peavey T-40 - that bass was freakin awesome but it was just too stupid heavy. So I sold it and drove straight over to this baby's now previous owner to pick it up.

    It's a Cort Artisan B4FL - Just WOW is all I can say about it. It needed a bit of tweaking on the truss rod but had flats on it already. Only 1 gouge in the neck between E and A strings.

    I like to do walking Jazz/Blues bass - also enjoy the old school jazz guys like Paul Chambers and Ray Brown. This Cort isn't a DB but I can still get the MWAAAAH!!! It sounds sooo good on the kind of bass I like to play. :bassist:

    I love it - $300 with new condition HSC. An excellent deal. Here's some pics for you all to drool over - It's straight up bass sex!! MWAH ON!

    Thanks!

    Pickups are Bartolini MK 1 - I really want to go DB but I figured this would be a nice filler until I can save up the dough for a decent upright. So this bass sounds "electric" but the MWAH gives the tone that upright feel.

    I don't like fretless for rock but for jazz and blues - I think it's a perfect fit.

    Ooohh!! That's fantastic. If it had an inline headstock you might find yourself missing a bass tomorrow :D

    Nice bass indeed. Can you tell me the width of the nut?
