    Someone will love this bass. The fingerboard was just professionally leveled by Phil Jacoby of Baltimore, BTW. It feels nice & smooth perfectly flat to play up & down the neck. There are no dings or scratches.

    I can vouch for Phil's work on any instrument. There isn't a better guy to deal with in MD. He could make a tomato can playable. This is an awesome looking bass. GLWTS!

    Yes is it pretty rare, and believe it or not the B string is nice. The person who prefers medium scale fretless should scoop this up. It was just as hard for me to find!

    I like 33"-36" scale for fretted basses but for fretless I way prefer 32", the reach in 1st position is just perfect 1 finger per "fret" without an awkward hand stretch. I have another 32" scale fretless Mike Browne 4 string as well. But I'm selling this to make room for & fund a Parker guitar. Been getting better at playing my nylon string guitar and hope to be good enough to play gigs as a guitarist/bassist by the end of the year.

    I'm going to wait until the end of this week before putting it on eBay. Is it OK to have it listed on both TB & eBay at the same time? I can't remember & didn't see anything in the rules.

    Reasonable offers may be accepted. It's priced what I paid for it so I wouldn't want to lose too much.

    It says For Sale/Trade. What are your trade interests?

    Sold & shipped yesterday! Gotta act fast I suppose...

    It was a really nice bass, but now I'm able to order that Parker guitar. Thanks for the interest everyone.
