    Here's a great deal for the first person who promises to treat this great bass as well as I have. This bass retails for $950.00. It's a beautiful Ibanez SRF705, fretless and in superb condition -- if there are any nicks at all, they're extremely small. I've had it for 18 months -- enough time to convince myself that a 5-string at this point in my career is too much, and I need to concentrate on playing my fours a whole lot better. Price includes careful packing and shipping within the continental U.S. Check out some YouTube videos about this bass--it's been very positively reviewed.

    Hey Bob, is there any case and what's the least you'll take for it?

    Sorry, johnnybegood, no case. I have my own cases, but I play mostly upright on gigs, so lack of a case hasn't been an issue. Let me think about how low I'd go. Did you see bherman's post yesterday about a 4-string Portamento for sale, with case and shipping, for $620? That looks like a fabulous deal. At that price, it might already be gone.

    Change of plans, guys. I'm taking this off the market and keeping it. However, anyone looking for a Portamento should check out bherman's post from Tuesday -- outstanding deal on a 4-string (as long as it's as mint as he says it is)! It will be a long time before you see this great bass with a case, shipped in the US, for $620.

    Bob - thanks for the bump! I agree these are great basses for the money; if mine doesn't sell soon I'll pull it and try it some more.
