    This is a brand new Lutherie MF 6 string fretless bass. No gigging, almost not played.
    Swamp ash hollow body, koa top, ebony fretboard, wenge and maple neck through.
    Hipshot tuners and bridge (16.5 mm string spacing at bridge).
    51.5 mm nut width.
    35 " scale.
    RMC piezo pickup and custom big single coil pickup from MJS.
    Seymour Duncan preamp (Steve Bailey).
    Below 9 lbs.
    Schaller strap lock.
    Has Thomastik infield flatwound string.

    Reason for selling: 35 scale is too much for me.

  2. Wow, a Michel Fournelle Fretless 6 in the TB Classifieds. I don't think I've seen one posted here before.

    The real deal.....tops in this neck of the woods...and absolutely world class...Michel built the instruments used in Cirque Du Soleil's Beatles tour, has also built for Alain Caron.....and even a couple of smaller fry for me over the years :)

    MF trivia: before leaving Montreal to play with Prince, Rhonda Smith’s main basses were a pair of custom-made MFs.
