    Hey TB!!!

    So I got this bass a few months ago in a trade with a great TBer, T.B. Player, and I love the bass, I just want to see what someone may be willing to trade for it. There are some scratch marks on the back towards the bottom, which I will fully disclose in pics this evening. I let a few of the local boys play my bass, maybe get them interested in music ya know, and one of the boys goes to lay my bass down on the ground. No big deal, I reach to get it, but he slides the bass forward, causing the body to scrape the ground:meh: Oh well, can't be mad at little kids. Anyways...

    The bass was made for T.B. by the Agile side of Rondo Music. It's 34" scale with 19mm string spacing, so the neck is kinda wide; it's a great bass for slapping on! It has a decent sound from the stock pickups and preamp. Anyone who's owned a Brice or Agile bass w/ soapbars will know what it sounds like. The neck is maple with a maple fingerboard (which I love by the way). The neck to me is a little thicker than the Ibanez Soundgear necks, but I love how it feels (I have larger hands). The body and hardware are all black with the glossy finish which really shines when you polish it. It's been professionally setup for super low action.

    I'm not really trying to sell it, and since it's my only six string, I'm looking to trade for other six string basses. Maybe you're interested? I can throw in a brand new Bartolini NTMB 3-band preamp w/mid freq. switch. Don't be afraid to reply or pm me with offers lol! I think this is a great bass to upgrade for relatively cheap since the preamp will be included (I have another one, Aggie OBP-3 w/ passive tone..ooohh yeeah!!).

    *EDIT* My picture kung-fu is weak....here are links until this evening.

    That's a sweet bass, followed the comings and goings when Mike was having it built .... don't think too many people here realize what a nice instrument it is :cool:

    I'd take it, but I don't play anything fretted anymore ...

    Hey PointBass!! I really dig this instrument, perhaps I'm just impatient lol. I was going get some Kent Armstrong pups wound for it, and I have Aggie and Bartolini preamps that are dying to get in one of my basses.

    This really is a nice bass though, thanks for the bump!
     
  5. If you put the Bart pre into this, the sound gets that much better. I put a Bart into the previous Prestige I had (35 scale, which was why I had the 34 scale built), and the tone was great.
