First of all I don't know if the other party is interested yet nor have I laid eyes or hands on the other bass, but I thought I'd get some opinions concerning a deal I'm contemplating trying to arrange ... There's a 1983 Cutlass lined fretless for sale in my area. They're asking for $2000. I -just- bought a Classic Stingray 5 so there's no way I can buy another bass at this time. I do, however, have a Steinberger L2 lined fretless. I'm the original owner and it's in very good shape. I also own a '79 Stingray, my primary bass, my baby, and no force on earth could get me to part with it. As far as I'm concerned, it's the perfect bass for me. If this Cutlass sounds anything like my '79 Ray, the Cutlass could be another slice of low-end heaven. So, should I consider a straight trade? Just looking for opinions ... fire at will.
