    Need some quick cash so here goes. I have a 5 string fretlees frankenbass for sale that comes in a molded case. It has a wramoth ash body and a warmoth maple neck with an ebony lined board. Has Bartolini soapbars out of an old Warwick Thumb bass (1989) and a Barto 2 band preamp. Kahler adjustable bridge. Has Roto flats on it now but will throw in a brand new set of Daddario prisms too for a bright sound. Bass has been modified and remodified but sounds great and not beat on. Has one hole that was filled on the front that you can see but otherwise it looks great. Tom Anderson did the paint job on it when I lived in LA. Looking to get $500 for it.

    I also have a EMG mid circuit that I'm selling for $50. I bought it and never used it.

    Thanx

    Are there any playability issues that should be known about? Where are you located? Can I get a pic of the back? Thanks man.

    No issues. Would keep it but unfortunate financial situation forces sale. As you can see this was a rear route at its birth. I really thought the Jbass look would be cool so it morphed into that after a few different configurations. It's a solid axe and I have way more into it than I'm selling it for. Thanx.
