    If the price stays there, I'm getting it.

    Man, now what could I sell to fund that? :p

    Nice bass, and I'm pretty sure I had a good transaction with the seller years ago. I should tell the person that bought my FBB fretless.

    Oh, I meant I traded something else with the seller and it went smoothly. I never owned that FBB. Nice one though.

    I'm sad to say that is a very un-smugish thing to say.

    That's a really sweet price though, if I were in the market for a 5-string and didn't build my own... I'd be seriously checking that out.

    Yup, still no bids with a couple of days left as of this post time. It's very tempting to me, but really, I just don't need another 5 .... I rarely play the 5 I have now ...... but it sure is tempting :ninja:
