    Rob Allen Lined Fretless MB2

    This bass is a very nice example of Rob's fine work. I priced the specs on his website this morning and it would cost $3,925 to commission this bass as a new build today with the adds and features. Here are the details:

    • Neck....32' scale mahogany, side dot markers
    • Fingerboard....lined fretless in a nice figured cocobolo
    • Body....mahogany
    • Top....curly maple, bound, with "F" hole and custom sized thumb rest matching the top
    • Bridge....cocobolo
    • Tuners....Hipshot Ultralights
    • Straplocks....Dunlop
    • Case....padded Protec gigbag
    • Piezo in bridge
    • Weighs about 5 pounds
    This bass is in near new condition with the exception of one pencil point sized ding on the top between the A and D strings. It is hard to photograph, but can be seen in the second photo. This bass has a fine upright like woody tone. I just had it professionally set up and restrung with LaBella 750 N black tapes in medium scale, standard gauge...60...70...94...115. Andrew Drake did the set up work.

    Price Drop from $2,495 to $2,375, shipped and insured in CONUS. I will consider international sales, but you will have to pay shipping and duty. PayPal is preferred method of payment.

    I am not interested in trades....unless you have a Cliff Bordwell 4 string Ball or D bass in a 32" scale slim neck configuration. These are the only trades I will consider.

    Please message me with questions or to buy this bass.

    Photos are below.

    Thanks for looking.

    Beautiful bass, can the thumb rest be removed?

    The thumb rest is glued on. I think it could be removed, but I would suggest having a qualified luthier do it and expect the top would need to be refinished after removal.

    I'm the original owner of this bass, and had it custom built with the 32" scale. As Koog says in his first post, this is a beautiful example of Rob Allen's simply elegant craftsmanship. I made the switch to upright around the time Rob built it, so it wasn't getting played enough - or would not have parted with it. Koog is a TBer with integrity and honesty - a great guy to deal with.

    Bump for a killer bass. I am a new Rob Allen convert and I want this bass!! I may be posting my MB2 for sale this weekend to try to purchase this one, because I prefer the shorter scale. Love my mouse!!!!
