    Marshall, you're killing me with this thing .....

    That bass shows just how far Matt has come with his bass building skills, and you can really see how he used your bass as a learning tool for many of his designs since then. The one absolute constant in all of his basses is the tone, they all have that ability to handle a lot of different situations yet still maintain the FBB sound.

    If I wasn't in the very early stages of communicating with Matt for a fretted 7 extended single cut, I'd be all over your bass if for no reason other than the fact it was one of the first ones he built. I, too, have a bass limit and I'm over it right now. Plus I'm really trying to behave myself until the end of the year when I formally place my order......

    Bump for the prototype of a great lines of basses ..... :cool:

    Thanks Ed for the comments. It is a sweetie...hope somebody can give it a good home. Forgot to add that it comes with a quality Musician's Friend soft case (with detachable backpack) that's too big for it, but protects it well.

    what a deal Marshall! And to think I was going to trade my Zon for this bass last year (still wish we would have). If I didn't acquire a fretless already I'd definitely take this off your hands. So, did you get a fretless ritter to replace it?

    Hey Andy,

    Good to hear from you! I'm getting a Turner...my Ritter savings account was changed into a baby expenses account, since my wife and I are expecting (due any day now). Oh well! If you want a second fretless, let me know...I should cut you a break since I waffled about this with you before!


    Everybody - this is priced "OBO"...all reasonable offers considered. I'll also consider partial trades involving effects.
