    I've finally run out of GAS. I'm downsizing (in more ways than one), and, because I would quickly run out of picture room, here's the list. If interested let me know and I will post or PM pics of specific peices.

    Fodera Imp 5 36" fless mahogany/mahogany/maple/ebony w/3 band pope. $4600 ($6000 - $7000 and 2+ years to get one)
    the best fless I've ever played - incredible fundamental

    Fodera Empire 4 34" fless ash (I think)/maple/ebony - 1st edition $1600

    '68/'69 Jazz fless ebony - players bass w/minor mods but the real deal/sounds killer $2500

    Bebensee 6 34" walnut crotch? w/5 peice neckthough semi-hollow w/bart pups/pre - a very early KB bass - one of a kind from one of the best $3300

    Vinnie Colletti 4 34" archtop - work of art - Armstrong pup redburst/binding/ebony fboard/tailpeice/knobs/pickguard $ 2400

    Kinal Kompact Bass 4 30" fless acoustic piccolo bass $900

    Remember, they are all fretless and all have HSC except the Kinal (w/bag). I will probably only sell the first 2 or 3 that get my price and then stop. Not trying to make a profit here but all my basses are in VG - Excellent condition w/no issues.

    thanks for looking.:ninja:

    oh, I've also o 2 uprights - anyone?
     
  2. Wow. That's quite the list.

    Could you post some pics of the Bebensee? I wouldn't be able to buy it or anything, but I love seeing his work. Incredible basses :)

    Here are some of the 6 string. KB used the natural crotch separations in the top wood as ff holes for the hollow wings.

    I don't have time to take others tonight but will tomorrow. Thanks for the patience.

    BTW, the 68/69 Jazz is all original (except for maybe the tuners & bridge) pots/pups original. Body was refinished natural. Nice thick slab board. Someone did a great job many years ago. I will dig it out of the case also.

    Anyone interested, please PM w/direct email and bass you're interested in.
    This site's limitations sucks. When you get good pics you have to squash them until they're crap.

    thanks

    And everyone for the patience. I only have moments within which to take pics and manipulate them this week. I should've waited until I had more time to devote.

    I will try to get them all up by week's end.

    Here are some pics. I hope they work for all.

    KB Guitars
    34" 6 string fretless
    Bart pups/pre
    Semi-hollow wings
    Ebony board

    Wonderful work. Beautiful wood combos. A little wear but nothing that can't be buffed out. Oil finish that feels organically excellent.:D

    I could keep this bass ALONE and cover every one of my needs.
