    Hey all, this is basically a repost from about a month ago, when I didnt had any pics for the bass.

    Here we go:

    Custom made MF (www.mf.qc.ca) 6 string 36" with ebony board and newly inlaid graphite strips in the sleek, fast neck; Oil finished arched back ash body with koa top, all in pristine conditions minus a few little bumps on the headstock and a couple of fingermarks on the body (see pics).

    Electronics : Bartolini soapbar pickup in sweetspot plus RMC piezo bridge with 3 band EQ and on/off switch, a bit noisy but versatile - allows the bass to sound a lot like an upright, but can also get that jaco tone, or whatever else, the bass being pretty versatile and very sensitive to the playing position and attitude (will sound very differently if played hard or soft).

    Comes with non-original beat up gig bag (levis) which happens to be the only case I have available to ship it in.

    buyer pays shipping - asking 1600$(US) or 2000(CAN$)
    Im located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

    Trades considered:
    SWR Redhead + Cash
    Eden Wt300 (or equiv.) + Cash
    Any equiv. Amp + Cash
    MM Stingray 5 (pref. Maple board) + Cash
    Maybe an old Jazz + Cash
    Maybe a skyline.. ?

    I need to sell this cause I just bought an upright and am budding to pay school.If it doesnt sell here within a couple of weeks, I'll have to Ebay this thing, and I wouldnt like that.

    To the montrealers amongst you, the bass is currently at MF's shop on consignment, if you wanna try it out.

    Drop me a line !

    I am a determined follower of Jesus Christ and am a Mormon.
    Good luck selling it. If I hadn't just bought 2 NYBW basses, I would seriously think about it! Sweet! Mag + piezo fretless 6 always gets my attention.
