    Greetings, TB shoppers. I got this for my son who was learning upright. He didn't play it much. It's a lined fretless purchased from Rondo Music, short (30") scale. It has some minor dings (hard to photograph, but I tried.) They are 1) on the front end of the headstock, 2) on the back of the headstock near the nut and 3) on the back of the neck (not deep, more of an abrasion. Barely noticeable when playing.)

    So why buy this one for $99 Now $89 shipped with dings, when you could get one new from Rondo for less than $140 shipped? STRINGS! The Rondo strings are not known for their quality. I replaced them with GHS Precision Flatwounds (45-95.) The shortscale light gauge strings are super easy to play and sound awesome - plenty of thump in this little guy! I found myself picking it up and noodling around on it a lot more than my son ever did, to the point that I almost kept it when he moved on, but the fact that my other fretless is a long scale unlined beast means having this around is just going to confuse me.

    I'll also include the original strings, the gig bag, and ship it in the original box for free CONUS. $75 Now $70 for local pickup here in beautiful rural NW CT.

    Good deal! If my son was a little older I'd scoop this up for him!
