    Gorgeous 6 string neck through fretless. Purchased new from F bass in 1990. Specs as follows:

    Flamed alder body wings
    5 piece curly maple/wenge neck
    marbled Ceylon ebony fingerboard
    bone nut and saddle
    9 coat tung oil finish
    passive electronics (volume, volume, tone)
    2 single coil pickups w/ dummy coils
    34" scale
    18 mm string spacing at bridge

    This is a really great bass that I am only selling because I don't play much fretless any more. It's in very good shape for it's age. Some wear on the bridge pickup cover and a few little cable dings near the input jack, which I'll post photos of later.

    Price does not include shipping, but I can ship it within the USA to avoid brokerage fees. Comes with a standard Fender style hardshell case. IMG_1199. IMG_1198. IMG_1196.JPG IMG_1197. IMG_1195.

    Paypal is okay.

    I'm interested in trading toward an MTD 634/635 fretted or possibly the right Fodera 5 or 6 string.

    Thanks!

    Another sexy, slinky, "vintage" F Bass. Beautiful. Mine was built within a couple years of this one and I love it. The thing that amazes me is how open the sound is. Just the right amount of focus and not too much "compression" in my opinion. The side-lines make it very easy to intonate as well.

    If the buyer decides to go with a preamp after purchase then definitely get the F pre with this. You will be unstoppable and the "vintage" tone knob will blow your mind; it's perfect for putting grit into the fretless growl.

    Best of luck to you, Brent, and to the lucky buyer.

    Be sure and tell the new owner to post a photo in Club Fbass and join in the conversation there.
