    The bass is a Rick Turner Electroline 5 string fretless bass.

    The bass has a natural, oiled finished swamp ash body and a lined rosewook fretboard. It also has two Turner soapbar pickups, a "reference" piezo bridge pickup and an 18 volt Highlander pre-amp with volume and tone controls.

    I purchased the bass approximately 4 months ago. When looking for a fretless, I was after a bass that had a unique tone, was responsive to my different playing techniques and styles, had the fretless "mwah" and just plain sounded good.

    This bass more than fullfilled all my expectation. Then why am I selling it? I am just not a 5 string bassist! I need to look for a 4 string. So, I'd be willing to trade this bass for a similar Turner Electroline 4 string or sell it outright.
