    Hey everyone, looking to sell this Mas Hino fretless. Pretty unusual instrument. Basswood body, bloodwood fingerboard, maple neck, a single Lane Poor pickup, Gotoh tuners, and I'm unfamiliar with the bridge. The lines you see in the pic are only in the finish- Mas told me it was weather checking. I don't have the time or patience to learn how to play fretless, and I know that someone out there would love to tear it up on this thing! I'll post more detailed pics tomorrow.

    Thanks!

    What would the price be if it didn't have the huge checking in the finish?

    I suppose the cost of having Mas fix it would make up the difference. Depending on how much that is, I wouldn't be opposed to adjusting the price to accommodate that.

    Did you ask him if he would fix it? He may be willing to fix it since, to me, it seems like a finish defect.

    Yeah he said he would fix it. If it doesn't sell soon I'll have him do the work. Of course that's an option for the buyer, too.
