    I got this in trade with the intent to sell on. Lots of people on this forum consider these the finest fretlesses and I don't disagree in the least! (I've had Skjold, MTD Marilyn, Rob Allen & others) This bass does low, low, action and mwwwaaah at the same time!

    Will ship worldwide!

    Edit: something's come up. I would take USD3600, cash, no credit, shipped to most locations worldwide.

    The trade options I'm most interested in are MTD USA basses, and think a straight trade is fair for the more pimped out ones (fretted Marilyn 635?), while some cash on top of an old workhorse would be appropriate imo, since MTD 2nd hand prices can vary a lot.

    In really great nick, the fingerboard does show play wear as all fretlesses will. Apart from the wear on the board, this is in absolute mint condition. The F-Bass light hard case is also in immaculate condition.

    Nut Width : 45mm (1 3/4")
    Width at Last Fret 80mm (3 1/8")
    Fingerboard Radius 10" - 16"
    Scale Length 34.5"
    Number of Frets 28
    String Spacing at Bridge 19mm (3/4")
    Neck Wood 3 piece quarter-sawn Maple
    Fingerboard Wood Gabon Ebony
    Body Wood Figured Maple/Spruce Top
    Tuners Black Gotoh tuners with 20:1 ratio
    Knobs Handmade African Blackwood
    Pickups RMC piezo pickups in the saddle & an F Bass stacked, single coil/hum-cancelling, magnetic pickup in the bridge position

    Beautiful! I could never effectively play it, but I could certainly stare at it for a good long while.

    Free bump for one of George's amazing Alain Caron 5's. Beautiful bass! I love this model.
