    Here is a nice, classy-looking bass. It has a unique body style and somewhat "Classy" looking imo. VERY lightweight and sounds great! Just for these reasons, I probably shouldn't sell it. When I need a bass for a church or wedding gig, this is my go-to bass. Has the "IT" factor.
    Either way, it's cool bass, GREAT Playability and Tone is excellent! A highly underrated builder/Mfg.

    Just LOOK at that Flamed Maple top!! Oiled regularly and well taken care of. THE most classy FM top I've ever owned.

    This bass has had a recent pro setup with D'Addario .45-.130 EXL Nickel strings. Super low action with 3 band Bass, Middle, Treble tone controls like most. Very flexible tone options. Great preamp!, has separate gains for each pickup and a mid.

    Pickups and preamp sound ALOT like Barts (to my ears). Plenty of tonal options.

    Check the links. Turn up the bass!

    FYI, these are a few very nice examples of Tune Basses and their tone in 3 different settings, all basses have slightly different options.

    Like I said, this bass is priced to sell and will remain as such. Don't wait, it could be gone tomorrow. (I generally sell quick, as my stuff is always in great condition, Pro set-up to PLAY!, and priced just right.) You won't be disappointed folks!

    These basses certainly don't get the attention they deserve. I have two of these, an f-hole fretless and a mahogony topped , both 4 string models.The action, balance, and overall feel is far superior than the norm. I paid $650 from a pawn shop so its a good price as well!

    Thanks Jimmy. I agree, this is a great price for the bass. The condition is as minty as a used bass can be, is also a big bonus. Personally, I'd rather sell my Warmoth Deluxe 5er, as I prefer the thin neck and lightweight of the Tune, but no one pays much for Warmoth on this site. :banghead:
