I bought this bass thinking that I would be able to start playing bass again after a long layoff... I think that I probably bit off more than I could chew, especially since even at my most active I was never much of a 5 string guy. The bass is absolutely beautiful and sounds as good as it looks. I bought it from this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-ft-feeler-r-bass-singlecut-fodera-clone-900561/ I paid $2,000 for the bass and have done little more than change the strings and play it a few times at home. I am looking for $2,000 or a trade for a 4 string, Jazz style or Exotic. We can do + or - Cash either way. If you have something you would like to offer, shoot me a PM. Thanks!
