Hello again TB crowd. This a completely customized all-Koa Turner-Renaissance Ampli-Coustic 5 string unlined fretless, in mint condition. Turner's description of this model: http://www.renaissanceguitars.com/renopener.html It has recently been set up and intonated by Rick Turner himself for the LaBella tapewound strings that are presently on the bass. The standard set up is for Thomastik-Infeld Acousticore roundwounds that come on these instruments, but in my opinion are inferior to the LaBellas for this kind of fretless bass. These have much more depth and acoustic power to my ear. The flamed koa wood on the body is just off the charts! It was a complete custom order, from the woods used to the satin finish. The fingerboard is a lovely dark ebony, over a gorgeous flamed maple neck. There is a matching koa veneer on the the headstock, and a very nice tortoise and mother of perl binding on the body. It plays like a dream, the neck is a breeze and the LaBellas give it either a very thick upright type tone, or a snappy solid body tone depending on where you play the strings, and what tone setting you have chosen. THE TONE IS FANTASTIC!! Though you can achieve the above mentioned tones, it really is its own animal. Not like anything else I have played. The scale length is 35" and the weight is 5.5 pounds. Did I mention tone? Unbelievable. Why do I want to sell it? I don't. But... I am playing mostly upright, in an effort to achieve some level of mastery there, and this beautiful piece of art and craftsmanship is just sitting in the closet. I have been on the fence about it for a long time, but I have decided to let it go. Now... I have $3000 into this and I can't take that much of a loss on it. I know that you can find this model used for less, but believe me it is not the same thing as this one. I have played several of them and this one is not at all in the same legue. It is much better all the way around. For you: $2400 shipped [to the lower 48]. paypal, paypal e-check, cashiers check, USPS moneyorder. The ONLY trade I MAY consider would be for a Rob Allen deep four of similar quality, or a Mouse 30 + cash. Maybe. Thanks for looking my fine TB friends!!
