  1. Hello,
    I am selling my Big McNeely 7 string fretless bass that I am the original owner of. The bass was delivered the end of this past April 2012, and never left my office other than to take it to show a friend once. It is a great bass with a killer looking top and great sound, but I just don't ever have time to play anymore. When I do have time, I usually play my other CB basses instead... so this bass is just gathering dust. I have slightly lowered the action, so you might have to raise it if you don't like a slight buzz on the upper strings. This bass is in brand new mint condition!!!

    *************************************************************************
    Just found out that I got my dream job and I'm going to have to relocate! This bass needs to sale.
    *************************************************************************
    Price - $1,500 U.S.NEG (Paid $3210 for it from the builder)
    I will pay shipping in full with insurance - only ship conus.

    I pay a ton of extra money to have everything professionally packaged by my friends at the UPS store, usually costing at least $100 dollars. See my feedback for more info.

    NO TRADES!!!

    This guy should make single cuts ^^

    Beautiful bass, one too much string for a fretless for me but spectacular looking (as does the fretted sixer xD )
     
  11. Thanks, it's actually pretty easy to play. Cliff actually does make single cuts, check out his site - cbbasses.com

    -ScottM
     
  12. Free bump! This thing is killing me...
     
  13. Thank you!
    Make me a good offer and it can be yours :D

    Have a nice weekend -ScottM

  19. Is this a solid-body or chambered body?
     
  20. It is a solid body, that is made of Cedar to cut down on wait.
