    FT - Feeler here, I just got this back in hand a little while ago at the same time I picked up a couple other basses so it's hardly been touched, it's an amazing rig that should be played. This was Juan Alderete's fretted P on the 2011 Mars Volta tours, I actually saw him playing it at Red Rocks when they were opening for Soundgarden, they also did a Rig Rundown video at that show (I'll link below where he briefly discusses it along with one of the original Pedals & Effects videos where he demos it)

    When I got it the original neck was a goner, I put a new modern American Standard maple neck on it 7 or 8 years ago and traded it away shortly thereafter. The pickguard was also trashed so that's been replaced by a black 3 ply. It's got a DiMarzio Model P and Nordstrand pickup that was made for him and installed before the associated tours. setup as a VVT w/a 3-way selector like his main fretless 71. Hipshot d-tuner, badass bridge, strung with Rotos. Neck is rock solid and the bass plays like a dream. I don't have the case but can ship in a gig bag.

    Open to trades for cool non-G&L/non-FSO 4 string basses, amps, pedals etc and can +/- cash accordingly.

    To keep the thread clean: seriously interested folks, please PM with me any questions, trade offers and additional photo requests instead of dropping them below.

    I’m sorry, what does non FSO mean? This is a really cool bass.

    Bummer. I was going to offer a FSO trade option. I’d love this bass.

    This thing is a beast! Had the privilege to meet up with Frank Abruzzo owned this very bass, used it to demo a GK Neo 412. It’s the real deal, amazing bass.
