SOLD Rob Allen MB2 MB-2 5 String Lined Fretless

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Baird6869, Jun 18, 2014.

    Price:
    2100
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    Ontario
    Price dropped to $1995 shipped.

    This is just an amazing bass. Unbelievable... I just can't do 35". All of my main fretted basses are 34". I am the second owner of this bass and the first owner bought this new from club Bass in Toronto.

    This bass is in amazing shape and is only 6 years old (2008 build). It has a couple of super small dings that can't be photographed. Protec case is included. Scratches on the plexi control cover is about the extent of any non-perfectness. Neck is perfect. The LaBella tape strings are absolutely amazing on this bass. Not sure if you would need new strings ever! :)

    Amazing figured walnut top with a super light ash body with a Madagascar ebony fretboard & bridge. I would call it at 7lbs. It is super light

    I will only consider dual pickup active 34" 5 string fretless trades. Sadowsky, Nordy, Valenti, Roscoe, Fodera NYC, FBass, etc. +/- cash of course if values differ.

    PayPal ok, will ship to Canada and CONUSA and can ship out of NY State next weekend.

    Currently strung with brand new LaBella white copper tapes but will include the original LaBella black tapes also.

    These are amazing basses! Good luck with the sale (though I doubt you'll need much luck). :)

    Hard to figure out string spacing due to the thick tapes. I would call it at 18" or so. I can measure anything required.

    I prefer to ship in Canada/US but shipping to Europe (depending where) may be an option once I look into it.

    Note: I looked into a new 34" version of an identical twin of this bass..... Approx $3500USD.

    Bump.

    Some interest but still available.

    I am offering this bass for sale in Canada/CONUSA only for now.

    Thanks!

    Note: The pictured Protec case is obviously included! I should have mentioned that in my OP.

    Lots of interest but still available.

    Is the original case no longer available?
     
  14. Baird6869

    Baird6869 RIP Gord Downey. A True Canadian Icon.

    That is the original case/bag from Rob Allen. A hard case wasn't ordered with this bass.

    I am actually ordering the same bag with an upcoming Valenti build. The Protec is a great product. Much more functional than any case I own (including My $450 Fodera Custom case).

    Still available for now....

    Cheers!

    Bump.

    Very likely keeping this one if it doesn't go soon.

    I am starting to realize that a 34" is going to cost me nearly twice as much as this!
