    I have a very rare Rob Allen MB-1 bass with many upgrades(The MB-1 is now out of production).

    It has a 3 tone sunburst (high gloss finish) on an amzing AAA quilted maple top. It has the upgraded (lined) macassar ebony fingerboard and bridge. The neck itself is an amazing blend of highly quilted, flamed and birdseye maple. The body ONE PIECE of alder, which accounts for the excellent tone and sustain of this bass!

    It really sounds and plays quite beautifully, I am always amazed by just how many different sounds there are in these basses just by varying technique. It is in excellent condition and comes with a gig bag.

    Please e-mail me with any questions or for some pics. I will inlcude shipping for the price above..and I will consider trades/partial trades (ONLY) for a high end jazz like Sadowsky, I am getting out of the game and only want one good high-end jazz bass
