    It's after Xmas and I just have too many basses...so this one's being dropped to $1100! It it doesn't sell at this price, I'm keeping it. Just too sweet to give away.

    Like new, lightly used one-owner. Comes with brand new Protec gigbag and leather Hanewinckel strap with Schaller's fitted. This bass is especially warm and versatile in the tones it can nail. Medium weight with solid body, very balanced on a strap.

    Specs:

    Ash body
    3-piece maple neck
    Pau Fero fretless fingerboard, lined with MOP inlay position markers on the face and top edge
    Bartolini 3-band 9v preamp, Bartolini soapbar pickups
    Active/passive toggle
    3-position selectable mid toggle
    Bone nut
    Gotoh tuners
    Custom Hanewinckel bridge

    Priced to sell at $1100, shipping included to USA addresses, elsewhere you pay all shipping. I accept Paypal, money orders and checks. Paypal ships immediately.

    Is this one still available?

    What does it weigh?

    Will you concider trades?

    thanks.

    Still available. Weighs around 9 lbs. I'd guess. I'll weigh it and update this thread tonight. Probably not considering trades on this but run your ideas by me anyway, if you like. You never know! ;)

    Weighed the bass on my digital bathroom scale and got two different readings: 9.5 and 10 lbs. My guess is that it's actually somewhere in between. Not particularly heavy for a solid body sixer, actually.

    Price lowered to $1100. You may never see a Hanewinckel fretless sixer any lower!

    I've decided to keep this bass for the time being (I'm even gigging it tonight and will post a review over the weekend) but I'm leaving the ad up for now and would entertain offers if someone's really interested. My initial impression of this bass, especially in the tone department, is quite favorable. Big surprise, huh? :p
