    Hi, I have a fretless 5 string I would like to offer on trade. This bass is beautiful and very detailed, to the brass fret lines/markers on the side of the neck, and the tuners. The neck and body finish is smooth and the bass has a nice woody vibe to it, it is very lightweight. The neck feels great, it has a great balance between the neck pickup (fender jazz) and piezo. Action is very nice and it plays really well. I had got this on a trade thinking I would get into fretless but honestly I have yet to play it out, 5 string fretless with no fret lines is a bit too much for me.

    $1500 shipped conus, comes with a tweed case- open to trades 5 and 4 string basses.

    Bass is in beautiful condition, electronics clean, truss rod turns and has a clean nut. Here is some info on the bass and maker, this is link to his website http://www.stradi.pl , and this is a video of someone playing the piezo only version with round wounds

    Would you consider a 2013 Rickenbacker 4003 in Jetglo, (Standard 4 String,) and an added Rick-O-Sound box, (Rickenbacker's Stereo Pick-Up Splitter.) It's 99% stock, changed one of the tone/volume knobs with one of the Rickenbacker website, matches the rest of them. Bought the bass new in 2013 for $1600, Rick-O-Sound from the 2000's for $150. I could travel to you, I would be coming from Eastern Massachusetts.
