  1. Hi Folks,


    CLIFF NOTES: $1,995 shipped CONUS.

    I am listing (re-listing, actually - we took it off the block back in February) this for a very good friend, and FWIW I completely endorse everything said about this instrument. Here are his specifics...

    Rob Allen MB-2 4 string lefty, serial number 891. Swamp ash body with walnut top. Rare walnut neck with unlined macassar ebony fingerboard. This is the last walnut necked MB-2 Rob built & the only lefty I have ever seen. It is in new condition; not a scratch anywhere, never gigged or even rehearsed. I'm the original owner. It's been in one room of my smoke free home since I got it. It's very sweet & smooth sounding but will get aggressive if you dig in. A similar bass (with maple neck instead of the discontinued walnut upgrade) would list for $3,540 from Rob & take 4-6 months to get. I will let this one go for $1,995. Deluxe gigbag & truss rod wrench are included.

    The bass comes in a near-new Body Glove bag (pictured below), which IMO is a much better fit than the OEM one Rob uses. However, if you prefer an OEM bag, I will make this happen.

    Sales price is $1,995, which includes insured UPS Ground shipping within CONUS. Shipping options for international sales can be discussed. PayPal is fine. No trades...thanks.

    Pictures are below. Thanks very much for your time, and happy shopping!
