    Hey Everyone! A rare one here. This is a Deep version of Rob's Mouse, using the same 3" alder blank milled down to about 2-1/8" I have not seen another one made. The result with the combination of the shorter scale and the deeper body gives you that blossom and decay more like an upright.

    But really it's all dependent on your technique. If you dig in hard, you'll get all the fretless mwah you want!

    The specs on this bass are:
    -5.5lbs

    -Alder semi-hollow body

    -Deep body option

    -Premium Bastogne Walnut Top, Rob said the top is particularly rare, as the child species exhibits no qualities of the parents. It's truly beautiful.

    -Birdseye Maple Neck

    -Ebony Fretboard and bridge w/ built in volume knob

    -f hole

    -Satin Ultralight tuners

    Bass is in wonderful shape, a couple scratches on the back plastic cover but otherwise great. Up until a month ago it has lived with the set of factory Labella black tapewound strings.

    I just had the bass set up by Lakland Basses' Carl Pedigo aka "Chicago Bass Doctor" He replaced the strings, gave it a full setup, and a new battery.

    Comes shipped in its Protec Case

    I have a couple trade interests +- cash as appropriate:

    Fender Bass VI (Japan or Custom Shop only)

    Lakland Decade 6 (Bass VI)

    Other US Laklands possibly

    Korg Minilogue

    I have a few photos here, but will upload more later when I have a full phone battery! :)

    Thanks for looking!
