    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    ...and it was a thing of beauty!

    A local store has a used one for sale for $1200.00, which seems like a good price to me. I've never played a bass without volume or tone knobs, but it didn;t prove to be too much of a big deal.

    The neck was almost perfect for my tastes - wide as hell and thin, front-to-back. Perfect string spacing and smooth as hell to play.

    If i have one complaint, it was the relative absence of mwah. This actually sort of put me off of wanting to get it but, overall, a very well constructed bass. Pic:

  5. Of course that only makes me like it more. ;) Regardless of that, I dig everything about except for the "relative absence of mwah"- :confused: Isn't that what a fretless bass guitar is for?

    If the lack of mwah is the only problem, I would buy it and have it fretted.

    It's the only problem I had with it, at least from my playing and inspecting it. It appears to be in excellent condition.

    If someone wants it, you can call Robb's Music in Boulder, Colorado.

    Tell 'em the guy who routinely goes in and scoffs at the seemingly never rotating stock sent you. ;)
