    I have a wonderful Benavente fretless Vortex 5 string for trade. The bass features an amazing Spalted/Flamed Maple top over an Alder body. 3 piece Maple/Wenge/Maple neck with an unlined Ebony fingerboard. Unique combination of Dimarzio Dual coil in the neck and Ultra Jazz in the bridge. The bass also features the new upgraded Benavente preamp. This is a killer fretless! It growls in the low end, and sings on top. It has that horn like sound when soloing. The neck feels awesome, and plays super fast. I love the bass, but I just don't have time to work on fretless intonation right now. I am planning a ship gig, and I need a fretted bass. I am interested in any high end 4 string fretted bass you might have(Benavente Lakland, Lull, MTD, Sadowsky, etc.). I would also be interested in a vintage Fender. PM me, or email me at: aj_dblbass@hotmail.com

    I am not really interested in selling the bass. I want to stick to more of a Jazz style instrument.

    Wow, that looks sweet. I wish I had something worthwhile to offer in trade...

    EDIT: Best thing I could offer would be a Treker Louis Johnson 5 + cash.

    I want to stick to 4 string basses. I am really interested in late 70's Fender Jazz basses however I would be interested in a Vintage Fender precision if one came up.

    Hey Adrian, just wanted to take a moment here and publicly thank and commend you for the way this transaction went down. In spite of postal woes and unintelligable employees, the bass arrived today and is if anything, even more incredible looking than the pic you posted. The bass is in absolutely perfect condition and I can't stress more how pleased I am with it, and with how satisfied I am with how you handled this transaction.
    Thanks again Adrian,
    Tony
