    So, the trimming and thinning of the copse continues.... I am the second owner of this amazing bass. It is in immaculate condition. No nicks, dings or scratches that I can see.. I took very good care of my gear and this has been babied while in my care. I have only ever strung it with flats so board wear is very minimal, and it sounds superb with them. The bass comes with a Protec F-Bass gig bag in very good condition except for the plastic ends of the zipper tags falling off (!!??). List price for these basses is $7,200!

    The bass was signed by Alain Caron himself, on the back of the headstock, during a clinic the first owner attended. Apparently Mr C. doesn't usually sign his signature basses.

    Specs:
    • Tiger Maple body with Spruce Top
    • 3-piece QS Maple neck with 28 "frets" Gabon Ebony fretboard
    • Hand made Gabon Ebony bridge
    • African Blackwood knobs
    • RMC Piezo pickups under the saddles + F-Bass stacked single-coil/hum-cancelling magnetic pickup in the sweet spot
    • 19mm string spacing
    • 34.5' Scale length
    The caliber of this bass is such that I wouldn't usually let something like this go but, amazingly, I find I am not playing it enough and have some loans that need paying off so....... here is a golden opportunity for someone seeking the King of Fretlesses!

    Thanks for looking...
