    Both are 32-35" fanned fret 5ers and are about 1 year old. Both are 19mm spaced at bridge.

    FOURNEL ABG IS TRADED AND WILL BE ON ITS' WAY TO GREECE. GREAT PIC OF CB IS AVAILABLE AT cbbasses.com - scroll down under "the news" tab for a quality image. All offers considered.

    First-CB singlecut with Norstrand pups, passive vol/pan/tone, amazing 3D quilted camphor top over mahogany, figured morado board/knobs and pup covers, banjo frets, ebony nut, Dunlop straplocks,
    3rd recessed Dunlop receiver along lower body edge (for my bass belt-neither seen nor felt unless you flip it upside down), pristine save 1 tiny ding about an inch from the jack (in pics to follow), currently strung with Chromes-very fat/thick. Also comes with wrenches and a spare morado knob (just in case).
    Very light-approx. 8 lbs

    also-custom Michel Fournel (Montreal luthier has made ABGs for Alain Caron and instrument for Cirque Du Soleil) fanned ABG 5er. 1st bass he made in '07, his shop's 25th anniversary-has MOP inlay indicating this. True hollowbody. Carved mahogany with spruce top
    -only the horns are solid. David Gage pup mounted under the bridge feet. Vol control knob on bridge. Thinline body-loud enough to practice unplugged, amazing when amped. Combination jack/rear straplock. Custom molded hardcase.
    Probably <7lbs.

    Paid 3Gs for each. Asking 2250 by Paypal. Trades or partial trades considered are 34 or 35" 5 string basses with 18.5 or 19mm spacing at the bridge. No amps/cabs or other basses. I'm partial to Elrick and Lakland. Current pics are poor but I can/will take more at higher res in daylight-hopefully this weekend.

    Me too. That top is ridiculous. Wish I had the scratch to do something about it. Good luck with the sale.

    Yeah, she feels and sounds as good as she looks, too. There's a bit of wiggle room in the ask.

    Holy cannollis. I want both of them, bad. :) I can't do anything about it right now, but if I've landed a job in the next little while and one of them is still around at that time, I will come knocking again.

    Hey lomo. Super great basses. I'd be all over the ABG if only I had not just gotten the AB II, the Z3, the Prima Artist (oops I got carried away :p) )

    Lomo is a great TBer and the basses are priced to sell.
