    Hey fellow Tb'ers I am selling my custom fretless active 5 string bass. It has 19mm string spacing, 34 inch scale, and weighs 9.5lbs. Has top of the line Norstrand P-J pickups. Has active/passive push pull knob. The top is spalted maple. I got pretty much every option possible including lined frets which make playing fretless much easier. I paid about $2400 for this thing new and barely ever played it. It honestly has about 20 hours of total play time on it. Never gigged with it because I didn't want to ding it. Condition is 9.5/10; it is as close to brand new as you can get. Looks like single cut Fodera Tom Kennedy model. The bass is located in Sf bay area in California and can be arranged to be picked up. I will also be including a really nice gig bag. Not interested in trades. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to make an offer. Price is $1650. Thanks for checking out my ad.

    Update: Will consider trades. 5 string with slightly more narrow string spacing is preferred. Trade value would have to be at least $2400 new because that's what my bass cost. Please be realistic with your trade offers. Let me know what you have.

    I'm gonna get a 36 from ya one of these days, just so I can try the Anthony Jackson string set. Be wary. :p

    Too bad; I was kinda psyched about a 43" scale! :)

    Nice bass

    Ahaha thanks rick! Ya that'd be pretty sweet. Might be hard to play, you'd really have to stretch to hit that C on the B string!

    Might consider a trade for fretless Fender Jazz made in America or fretted 5 string with string spacing smaller than 19mm

    Hello tondogg. This still for sale? How much? What other bass would you compare this too? I play pedulla and Zon. Any chance you could take a video walk around of the bass?? Maybe play it quick? I live in ny, thanks.
