Hey Everybody,

I've kind of caught the bug for another bass, and these beautiful beasts just aren't getting played. So I thought I'd give you all the first shot at them... I really don't want to go to eBay.

First, my 2001 5 String Series 1 MK in Coco Bolo.
It's in great condition, 34" scale, a small crack near the back plate. I'll take more pics if you're interested. I'm asking 4250. But make me an offer.

Second is a highly customized 5 string fretless Excel. I bought it from a club member who ordered it from the shop, here's his details:

Serial# 04X13385 - Fretless 5-string Excel

Vermilion top
Zebrawood accent lams w/purpleheart pinstripe
Vermilion body
Ebony/purpleheart/vermilion/mahogany neck
Satin finish on back of neck
Striped macassar ebony fingerboard
Continuous vermilion veneers on pickups

34" scale
Side LEDs: Green w/amber at 12th & 24th frets
MXY neck pickup, FatBoy bridge pickup
Europa/Rogue electronics w/custom layout
Recessed straplocks
Gotoh tuners
Chrome plated hardware

I think 3250 is fair for this one, but again- make me an offer.

Both come with OHSC, and the guy i bought the excel from was kind enough to include an alembic strap with it, so I'll include that too. And some new strings with both. Why not?

Contiguous US shipping is on me. I don't know anything about shipping internationally, so I would prefer to avoid it. In the off chance that you have a Carl Thompson, I'll consider a trade.

Here's an album with both: http://imgur.com/a/bPNcG
I'll provide more pics or info if you want.

Thanks for looking!

Hi,

How much does the S1 weigh? And does it come with the DSR power supply?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure I have a deal for the Series, so it can be marked as sold/traded for , for now.

And the deal fell through for the series. So it's back on the market. For those asking about the weight, I have no way of weighing it, but it is on the heavy side.

You might have a bathroom scale?
What about the power supply?

Thanks

i have the rack mounted power supply and cable, as well as the case (although the case has a busted lock). i do not, however, have a bathroom scale.

So I hate to be difficult here, but I think I'm going to take the Excel off the market for now. It's my only fretless. I'll entertain trade offers for another fretless, but I think a sale is off the table for now. Thanks everybody.
