    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Looking to either sell or trade this bad boy. I have another fretless 4-string and just don't need this anymore.

    Tune Bass Maniac Fretless 4-string (I believe it was made in the late 80s)
    - Jazz pickups config
    - Lineless ebonol fretless board in good shape with minimal wear
    - Active onboard preamp that gives a really nice growling tone
    - Nice, high quality Tune hardware
    - Straplocks
    - Gig bag included

    Has a nice small body and a narrow, fast neck. It's a really sweet bass that I bought from John at BassAlone a couple of years ago. I've gigged with it maybe once. I just don't need it anymore.

    $300.00 - INCLUDES shipping
    EDIT: OR Best Offer)


    Anywho. I will get some more pics.
    Feel free to e-mail or PM me.

    I tried PM'ing you back but your mailbox is full. I just PM'd you and asked "There's no balance control?"

    Tobias4 - sorry about that. It actually DOES have a pickup balance control, 2-band EQ and volume.

    FYI to some others who tried to PM me - my box is now empty. :D

    Man, these are great basses, but they are a hell of a hard time to sell (I've been trying to pawn off a fretted version of the same bass for a while now)... for $300, it's a total steal! Buy mine too and you'd have a matching set!!!:D
     
  11. Can you describe the neck at all, i.e. thickness? How old is it? Can you describe the sound? What's the finish on the back of the neck? Any pics of the back? Lol...I obviously know nothing about these basses.

    The neck is nice and thin front-to-back. The neck itself is painted black, but it plays very fast. Normally, I don't like painted necks, but this one's a breeze to play. I don't have any pics of the back (I will get some if you are interested in buying it), but there are no nicks on the back.

    The tone is actually nice and growly, but very versatile.

    Okay - got a few bites on this one, but nothing ultimately came through.

    I am now entertaining any REASONABLE offer anyone might want to lob my way, sale or trade.
