I still have this bass, it's not sold. but there's little interest in it at present here on the board, so I'm going to keep it a while longer. Thanks! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ [I originally had this listed as Lava Pearl, but the consensus among the experts is that it is Desert Gold - Thanks for the info everyone!] This is one awesome fretless bass, I'm only selling it to fund relentless GAS pains... I'm the second owner of this bass, had it for about a year. The board is lined pau ferro, and is in great shape - very little observable wear. I've only used Elixir strings on it, and they are pretty easy on a board due to their coating (not to mention that pau ferro is quite hard to begin with). Everything about this bass is wonderful, functionally there are no issues at all. Electronics are 100%, the neck is stable and the action low with no buzzing. Great bass! Cosmetically, there are three small dings in the finish; the obligatory Bongo headstock ding, and two on the upper side of the bass (visible from above while playing but not visible from the front, nor from more than 3 feet away). Obviously, none of these affects the playability of the bass. All dings are pictured below. Bongos rule, and I'm going to miss this bass. GAS is an evil thing indeed Ships in OHSC. $899 shipped in the lower 48. Paypal is fine. Many pics to follow... Thanks for looking!
