    I want to trade my Lakland 5502D amber for a 5 or 6 string fretless with narrow string spacing and mwah for days. It will come shipped in a Lakland hard case. I has Lakland LH3 pu's and was made in Korea and has been Plek'ed. It is in excellent condition with some very light buckle rash on the back and a small ding by the input jack and one on the bottom of lower horn. I recently bought this lovely bass from Bamabass a couple of months ago. While I love the tone of it and it's versatility it is just to uncomfortable for me to play because of the 19mm string spacing. I have medium small hands and it was just slowing me down since my main bass is Streamer Jazzman with 17.5mm spacing. I am looking for basses with 17-18mm string spacing. If the bass has neck dive at all I am not interested. I will add money to a trade for the right bass. Basses I am interested, but not limited too, in in order of preference are.

    Warwicks, preferably Streamers or Corvettes, I would consider a 6 string too.

    Musicman Stingrays, Sterling or Bongos preferably H/S or H/H pu's

    Spector Euro or rebop

    G&L 2500 or Tribute 2500

    Just to reiterate. I am only looking for fretless 5 or 6 string trades.

    Please no Fenders, Squires, Ibanez, Schecter, Rockbasses, Wishbass

    For Sale price is $1125 shipped in the continental US. I will ship to Canada for extra cash to cover shipping. PAYPAL only please.

    What's the nut width? My G&L L2500 has 1 3/4" nut width and it's the most comfortable spacing and neck ever.

    Still available but I do have one very promising, interested and local party.

    Sorry to everyone tempting me with all these great basses. I am really only interested in fretless 5 or 6 string basses with 18mm-16mm string spacing.
