    ...OK - truth be told it is NOT fretless yet BUT it will be sold as a fretless.

    This is a pristine 2011 HoBo I picked up in December

    This bass is absolutely beautiful and does not appear to have any scratches, nicks, dings etc. a real "under bed classic"

    It has single coil ChiSonics that are very aggressive and awesome sounding!

    It is currently strung with newer Chromes which sound GREAT with the Chisonics.

    So - if this bass is "soooo good".....why am I selling it you ask? I have a potential project bass which will require the fretted neck and my wife is really adamant now about the "one bass in one bass out rule"...as such, this one HAS to go if I want the new one....

    The bass is from 2011 and will equipped come with a 2003 rosewood lined fretless neck which is itself in perfect condition. It also comes with a hardshell case and speed knobs (see pictures below).

    Once sold, I will personally transport this bass under tight security to the secret underground (really - it IS underground) workshop of Carl Pedigo where he will expertly install the fretless neck and will give it his special "fretless" set up (which is remarkable.,....I have had him set me up a fretless lakie, the fretless Carlo and a fretless Turner Ren5).

    PS - JUST TO CLARIFY - I WILL BE KEEPING THE FRETTED NECK AND THIS WILL COME WITH THE FRETLESS NECK ONLY. I will include a letter stating that the necks have been swapped and that this bass is indeed a 2011 with a 2003 neck.

    here are a few pics:

    Thank you for looking!

    PPS - anything that "looks like" scratch etc. is a light reflection or smudge....

    Make me a "reasonable" offer....

    Great guy here and a rare opportunity. If you want to get an upright sound from a bass guitar, this is THE formula. Quite tempted to grab it myself, I almost bought that neck for my HoBo.

    man...I guess I "have" to keep this one...oh well....no worries...she is a GREAT bass....maybe i will put the fretless neck on just to see how she sounds myself...I hear Chisonic + fretless = greatness.

    How does it compare to the Turner Ren 5 fretless? I own one of those and love it but sometimes wish for a usual pickup.

    No real comparison....very different animals...

    this is a bit more aggressive.

    I also love my Ren 5.

    How much does it weigh, out of curiosity?

    A couple more questions in addition to the weight... Is this the Skyline or the US model? What specific model did the 03 fretless neck come from? Thanks!

    OP probably should have clarified, but this is a Skyline as is the fretless neck. You would be hard pressed to find a US Hobo in this condition for the price the seller has it listed at.

    Sorry - should have clarified...Black Bart has it correct.

    The '03 neck is from another Skyline HoBo...

    8 lbs 6 oz on a digital kitchen scale...
