    And gone! Headed to New York City!

    Just got my new Surine, custom made for me, so I no longer need two. This is a remarkable piece of engineering and beauty. If you're a soloing bassist, you'll love the extended keyboard. Sadly, I'm not that good!

    I'd put the overall condition of the bass in very, very, very good to excellent condition. The only thing I can find wrong with it is a little (and I stress a little) sloppiness of the super glue on the fret board when the fret's were originally installed. It's not on every fret, but a only a few.

    When I ordered my new Surine with Scott, we talked about this and he admitted they have since perfected this part of their build process and that this wouldn't happen on my new bass. I also verified that these are the original frets. I only mention this because 1) people can get a little anal about stuff like this and 2) it's an expensive bass and I don't want anyone to think poorly of me or Scott.

    BTW, I'd entertain trades of an equally quality bass, and particularly I'd really be interested in a lined fretless 5 with string spacing of 18.5 or 19mm.

    So tempting! I have an older Espirit 6 that is excellent, though I would not be able to wear it through a gig at 10 lbs although, I am not opposed to sitting down ;)

    The fret's are superglued in, so I'm not sure that's possible.
