  1. SOLD - Beautiful bass, but it's just not getting played. It's a one-off lined fretless 4 string, zebrawood top, f hole, thumbrest, etc. I've owned a Turner Ren and seriously this thing plays, and balances better, and sounds more like an acoustic upright. The bass has always been strung with Flats and there are absolutely no issues with it. I spoke to Jack about the bass and I have more details if anyone is interested in it. I'm sure I'll regret selling it, but I can't justify it just sitting there. $1500 with hardshell case that came with it. No trades please.
