Unnamed fretless 6 string
£200
Radcliffe, Manchester

Recommended Posts

I’m selling my fretless 6 string as I’m switching to electric guitar. It’s passive, and has actually got a lovely mwah going on.

I would be happy to consider trades/px for guitars (not basses) or guitar amps, and could put cash towards if needs be.

Looks like a lot of bass for the money!

Yeh, it actually is. It would be great for someone wanting to give fretless ERBs a try.

Do you know what is the scale of the bass, and the weight?

Hi, it’s 34 inch scale length, i’ll have to get back to you with an exact weight, but it’s a super light bass.

Always worth asking, but I’m sorry, I’m completely in the dark as far as identification is concerned. Whatever they are, they sounded more than reasonable to my ears.

Btw, the dot markers on the side of the neck are positioned for a fretted bass, but the neck has never been cut for frets.

Yep but that's quite normal, seen the same on other basses that were born fretless

 

was courious about the neck wood? it's a bit dark to consider standard maple, but probably this information as well is missing right?

Looks like an old school Shine/ Harley Benton from back before Thomann took control of the ship. I remember seeing these all over eBay under a bunch of different names back in the day.

This is a guess though. I had a Shine in trans black which looked very similar. Nothing wrong with it at all.

It’s definitely not maple, the colour is much darker. I couldn’t say what it is though

The neck wood is almost certainly maple. The grain and flaming give it away.

The fretboard looks to rosewood but I could be wrong.

It could help to list the string spacing at the bridge as it looks very tight - in fact it doesn't look to deviate much from nut to bridge...

Yes, you’re absolutely right, thanks for pointing it out, I read “neck” and was answering with respect to fingerboard 🙄🤯🤦🏼‍♂️. I think you’re on the right track with the rosewood also.

 I will sort out string spacing details when I get it weighed.

      These have just come off a bass I have acquired.  The previous owner said he had put them on very recently.  The have red silks so I think Rotosound but not sure.  The gauge feels like a pretty standard 45-105 set but I cannot confirm that absolutely.
      The strings came from a 4 in line headstock Fender-style 34" scale bass.

      for sale is my Rob Allen Mouse fretless with lines. I bought this bass new at bassclubparis.com a few weeks ago for a theater project, in the meantime the theater decided  to buy a upright bass, so i don't need the mouse anymore. It is really in brandnew  condition without any dents or scratches – i played it a few hours, it never left the house. The protec softcase, also brandnew, is of course included and i also will throw in another set of strings ( Labella deep talkin for the mouse ). I would like to have 2150GBP or 2450€  + shipping cost ( shipping within europe is no problem ). I attached two sound samples below, so you can get an idea how it sounds. 
      New Price is 2000 GBP !
      here are some specs:
      swamp ash body, semi hollow
      walnut top
      30" scale lengh
      maple neck
      goncalo alves fretboar with lines
      fishman preamp and piezo pickup
      hipshot ultralite tuners
      Let me know if you have any further questions 
       
      Thanks for watching !

      Selling this unique bass, very special one. The only existing bolt-on mBass ever made by Marleaux. It is a bolt on as that is usually the prefered construction type by many for a more balanced fretless sound.
      New price would be around 4800€, but this bass was a one of, so cannot be ordered new.
      The bass is in absolute pristine condition with no dings or marks. I am only selling it because I need the money and this bass is not getting used ao much.
      Specs:
      - 34" scale, 
      - 5 string lined fretless 24 fret marks
      - three-peace maple neck
      - ebony fingerboard
      - mahogany body
      - figured pear wood top with wenge accent veneer
      - delano quad coil pickups
      - marleaux 3 band eq with active-passive switch
      - includes marleaux rigid gigbag, strap locks, tools and marleaux booklet
      - includes a new set of Marleaux roundwound strings
      - ships with laBella deep talking flatwounds.
      - include two ebony finger ramps (currently not installed on the bass)
      Asking 3300€/2995£ negotiable. Can ship worldwide.
      I could consider partial trades with money my way with things like: Fender american precision basses and/or 5 string american active jazz basses (can be nom fender) Noble preamps, vanderkley amplificarion stuff, trickfish preamps, some pedals, and yamaha silent basses.

      Hi Basschat members.
      Superb Fodera AJ 6 - Fat sounding beast. 19mm stringspacing, long scale, and incredible handling. A sweet 90ties era Fodera bass. 
      But new stuff coming in. Designed by the master. Small signs of wear. Around the jack output some small finish crack. But nothing serious.
      So I let it go at a cool price inc standard sending cost within Europe. Including orig. Fodera Case, well packed. Fodera vibes and Fodera playability.
      Don't miss the opportunity to get a bass designed by the Master and built by Masters. More pics on request. 
      Has a fresh set of boomers on it.
      Cheers, Z.
