    Sound clips added in post #14 below:

    This bass was custom ordered by me from Bud Lecompte and delivered in May of 2010. Bud has actually discontinued this model, so you can't get this body style any more. Its been to 2 church gigs, and thats it. Kept in a clean, non-smoking environment and has no scratches or dents except some very very light string wear on the epoxy fingerboard. Its basically brand new. I'm re-listing it, because I'm simply not playing it since my 6'ers get all the attention. I could use the funds to put into other gear, and I hate to see it hanging on the wall when someone could be playing this beauty. Here are the specs:

    LeCompte SS SC-5,
    35" scale, unlined fretless
    White dot side markers
    Set-neck construction
    Two piece ash body
    Quilted maple top
    Padauk accent binding stripe
    Five piece maple/padauk neck
    Single action truss rod
    Satin clear finish
    Macassar ebony fingerboard
    Epoxy coated fingerboard
    Graphite nut
    Matching maple headstock w/padauk accent
    Black Hipshot Ultralite tuners
    Black Hipshot "A" bridge (0.708" spacing-adjustable)
    Black Dunlop Straplocks

    Nordstrand Dual Coil pickups
    series/single coil/parallel switching
    Audere Z-mode, 3-band preamp (18V)
    passive tone control
    active/passive switching
    Custom padauk/maple control knobs

    Yes, the electronics are outrageous, I wanted this baby fully loaded. You can pretty much get any fretless sound you want out of it. Its also very lightweight and the neck is thin and fast. Very versatile, ergonomic, and great sounding fretless 5.
    Comes with a Protec case.
    PM me with any questions.

    String Spacing:
    Nut width- 4.8 cm
    String spacing at nut- 11mm
    String spacing at bridge- 18mm (adjustable with the Hipshot A-Bridge- about 2mm each string)

    Weight:
    8.8lbs

    This bass was well over $4000 when ordered in 2010. Buyer pays shipping. FINAL PRICE DROP BEFORE MOVING TO EBAY: [DEL]$2300[/DEL] $2000

    Trades I'd consider:
    -F-Bass fretless five or 6
    -Jerzy Drozd bass (five or 6 string) fretted or fretless.
    -NS Design Omni Bass

    The bridge string spacing is 0.708". String spacing is a bit adjustable, about .08" side to side, with the Hipshot A-style bridge too.

    Wednesday bump, and I thought I'd mention that not only is Bud Lecompte no longer making this model of bass, he is no longer taking any custom orders. The only way to get a custom Lecompte now is used, and this one is in brand new shape..don't let it get by you! :)

    Its a very lightweight bass, due to the swamp ash body. I'm on shift today, but will try to get my wife to weight it and I'll post it up this afternoon.

    Ok, when I got off shift this morning and got home I decided to re-weigh the bass myself, as 10lbs sounded a little heavy to me. I tried it several times on the digital scale, and consistently came up with 8.8 lbs.

    edit: added the weight to the specs

    Thought I'd give the string spacing in metric:
    Nut width- 4.8 cm
    String spacing at nut- 11mm
    String spacing at bridge- 18mm (again, its adjustable with the Hipshot A-Bridge-about 2mm)

    edit: added string spacing to specs

    I haven't got as much interest as I hoped. Perhaps I priced it too expensive for the current market, so I'm dropping the asking price down to [DEL]$2300[/DEL] NOW $2000. Someone needs to snatch this beauty up and give it the justice of being played!

    I've been getting some interest on this again lately, so I'm going to leave it up on TB for a while longer. I was asked to record some sound samples, so here they are. Not great quality or anything, I'm no sound man. They were recored directly to Garageband using an Axeport interface. No effects or anything. I just noodled around a bit and tried to show the variety of tones available. The occasional popping is me toggling the various switches. Please don't hold the bad playing against the bass :)
    Strings are DR High Beams.
