    I may regret this, but I have my eye on something I can't look away from! Curse you GAS!

    I am looking to sell my 2007 Tony Franklin Fretless bass. I would rate it an 8 out of 10 in condition simply because it has been lovingly used. There are no glaring marrs or scratches. There are the few love taps but nothing that you honestly wouldn't find on any 6 year old bass that has been loved and cared for.

    I have made some minor modifications. First of all - and perhaps most obvious: The Darth Vader decal. It removes very easily if you don't love it. It should leave no mark. I had a similar decal on another bass and it left zero residue.

    You will also notice I have replaced the original "L-shaped" bridge with a black Leo Quan BadAss bridge. Also, in keeping with the "none-more-black" theme, I replaced the knobs with black knurled ones. Looks killer in my opinion.

    It no longer has the Black Beauty strings on it - they have been replaced by Rotosound 66s. It's a Tony Franklin Fretless, it has to be rounds! As is standard on these basses, there is a d-tuner on the E string. Fretboard is in excellent condition. You can see signs of use but there are no ruts or concerns of any kind. It is ebony.

    It will ship in the orginal G&G case. I am the second owner. I have no case candy. I may be able to dig up the original bridge (not promised) and I also have the original knobs.

    I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

    I am asking $1,400 OBO shipped CONUS, Paypal.

    Love it, but on the off chance some heathen wanted to un-stealth it a bit, are the original parts available/included?

    Also...considering any trades?

    Thanks.
