GAS Attack - Help!!

  1. :D I found this fretless BNF4 F Bass (1985) with Bartolini P/UPS, almost mint condition. The asking price is 1199 US, I think I can get it for 950 US. Plays like new! Only one small body nick (took me 15 minutes to find it), ebony fretboard looks almost unplayed! The owner is a DB player and has rarely used it. It comes with the original gigbag hand stitched by George's Mom!


    :confused: I am torn - I was thinking of getting a new BNF5 before I found this. But it has the greatest sound -(like Jaco's on Donna Lee, except it's only me playing), and it plays effortlessly. (It looks like the long-lost brother of my '87 BN6):cool:

    Do I hold out and order a new BNF5 (at ~3000 US) or jump all over this one?

    You say it sounds great. It plays great. Then what are you waiting for?
  3. ;)Maybe a donation?

    Or someone with better impulse control to comment on why I should save the cash towards a new 5-string fretless? (Not that I can't make my own decisions....)
