    I have tons of WATCHERS but nobody pulled the trigger? I'm accepting Paypal and willing to ship internationally, but not a nibble. I'm at a loss, but please all I'm looking for is constructive advice from my fellow TB brothers and sisters.

    Thank you for your help.
  2. because I don't have the money

    And because bongos look like toilet seats :bag:

    Honestly, a lot of people don't like the way bongos look. Personally I love them, and just bought a bongo 6 2 days ago. Good luck with the sale man, maybe try to sell it or post ads on other bass sites or something :-/

  4. it's not everybody who has a cool grand sitting around for a fretless bongo.

    I'd love to have one, but i'd probably never play it :bag:

    it's the economy...everyone is looking for a killer deal and it shows. If you want to move something, especially if you want it ot go fast, you have to be really aggressive with pricing. It sucks, but it's the truth

    My opinion:

    1. That's a "weird" looking bass.

    2. Fretless is not so much a problem, but unlined is for beginners.

    3. The economy has everyone gripping their dollar bills like a life vest on the Titanic.

    Didn't we have a discussion about this very bass about 2 weeks ago...?

    I'll bet someone, somewhere, REALLY would love this bass. Heck, I might like it... But it's just not "me".

    And What's up with "Unlined is for beginners"??? What up wit *dat*?

    I would be interested in that bass except for the color. Never could get into gold cars or instruments. Good luck with the sale.

    Four reasons:

    1) Fretless
    2) Color
    3) Odd Shape
    4) Economy

    Not a lot of people want to spend $1K on a "nice to have" bass over a "need to have" bass.

    The only 2 things stopping me are:
    1) Money
    2) Fretless

  12. 5) five string
    6) unlined
    7) Economy again

    Nice instrument, but I wouldn't be surprised if it take a while to sell.

    Love the number of strings.
    Love the color.
    Love the bongo vibe.

    No need for fretless.
    Even less desire to punish myself with unlined fretless.

    if you want to put it up for sale in the classifieds here, you're welcome to, but otherwise, this is not allowed (spamming a bass for sale in the bass forums).
