    Gorgeous lightweight Rob Allen MB-2 fretted 4-string for sale.

    Excellent condition, no significant cosmetic or functional issues other than the usual minimal playwear befitting an instrument that has been played a bit. Frets in excellent shape, neck straight, sounds completely amazing. Here's THE solution for all you non-fretless players like me who want that perfect Allen acoustic bass tone BUT whose intonation leaves something to be desired! Love this bass but I'm going completely 5-string.

    $1950 cash professionally packed and shipped in gig bag to lower 48. Paypal OK, USPS money orders would be even better. No international sales, sorry.

    Would prefer sale but would listen to limited trade offers including Sadowsky 5 with 1 3/4" nut and pau ferro or rosewood fingerboard (Metro Will Lee 5 or NYC custom, I'd add appropriate cash of course); other high-end 5-string basses with 34" scale, particularly fond of 1 3/4" nut width. Other possible trade interests include powered PA QSC K-sub + cash. Don't need much in the way of bass amplification or effects - MAYBE a small light-weight head.

    Question was asked about potential neck dings - there are none. Feels smooth and fast.

    Somebody should buy this bass! I have the same model, in a fretless, and the build quality and tone are amazing, plus it is so light (mine weighs 6.5lbs). A keeper for sure.

    Thanks, johnbee - it is indeed a great instrument. If I was still playing any 4-string at all I wouldn't let it go. Several inquiries but no one's pulled the trigger yet.

    I had a MB-2 in a Fretless, incredible bass. Nothing sounds like a Rob Allen, and the build quality is second to none. I just sold a Carvin AC 40 (a decent version of this bass) so someone buy this bass soon before I do something foolish. Actually, that happens on a daily basis, before I do something "really foolish"! GLWTS.

    It's still here! And yes, there's nothing quite like the Rob Allen sound.
