Wow, that's nice.
'Said it before, these neck-through designs are works of art, eh?

Very nice bass. It's funny how you don't see a TII for ages and then two turn up on eBay at once.

Oh no, the wiff will kill me. Bit odd how the bridge intonation is lined up tho, what you guys think?

It's not a bad price for a near mint TII fretless. I just payed £400 for a fretted TII which is has many battle scars.

Intonation is easy to adjust, it's not even an issue.

I know its easy to adjust, just wondered why this one was set that way. Is it because of a neck issue?

I see. I dunno, maybe it's because the owner doesn't know what he/she is doing in regards to bass setup. If the bass is in near mint condition I'd assume it's been well kept, therefore unlikely to have developed any problems. If I was thinking of bidding I'd probably ask about it, though, just to be on the safe side.

Fair comment, if its that mint it hasnt been played much so the setup could/would be all over the place.
I want an electro-acoustic 6 string not a bass, the misses is going to kill me, aargh.

Looks like more Westones than usual cropping up on UK ebay, has someone decided the recession is over?

I can't justify another bass (a triumph of sanity over GAS!) but this looks like a good one.

Apparently it is...at least here in Canada, or so we're told. cheers
Consumer confidence is up for the 6th straight month, the Toronto Stock Market is just about back to where it was last Fall, and real estate sales and new construction is booming!
SO, how come I can't find work? Crying or Very sad

Mate, that's probably the problem right there, eh!! Employers are ageist over here, too, regardless of your qualifications and/or experience!! The NZSE is quietly confident too; let's hope everything is back on track....

The price is good but it's not a good starting point for an auction. That's a lot of bass for £300. Seller should have started the bidding lower to entice people in.
