    Selling my Warmoth 5-String G5 Fretless Bass Guitar. I am an unlined fretless guy. The lines & dots throw me off.

    This Warmoth 5-string G5 Fretless Bass with all Bartolini electronics has an incredible sound. The parts used for this bass are all the best available. The Bartolini electronics have no hum and huge EQ sound options. The lacquer on the back of the neck and body has been taken to a wonderful mat finish rather than super glossy. Theres a very small scratch near the electronics compartment (see photo) and a very light brush mark on the side where it was rubbed too hard when taking off the gloss finish. The body top and neck are completely unblemished. This has a very nice Birdseye maple neck. Semi-hard TKL case included. Weight is under 9.5lbs (bathroom scale)
    You guys know the price is way less than this cost to build.

    FS: [DEL]$875 [/DEL] $800 or best reasonable offer shipped Cont. USA, others contact me for shipping quote.
    Trade: Fender Road Worn Sbst Jazz, Fender Jazz w/maple fretboard, maybe Lakland 55-02 Sbst w/maple board, Nordy, Tobias, Lull M4V maple board. Cash on either side depending on trade.
