Price or Trade Value : £300

I am selling my 2015 Cort B4 Fretless Bass. The bass is in excellent condition. The only mark is below the EQ knobs (see picture). The mark is hardly noticeable but I include it in the pictures for the sake of transparency. Apart from this very small mark the bass is spotless. There is very light marking on the fingerboard underneath where the 'E' string has rubbed against the board. This is very light and to be entirely expected on a fretless. Cort basses play and sound way beyond their price range and the B4 Fretless is no exception. The bass comes with a months old fitted Cort hardcase. The bass and case have never been out of the house and never gigged. The bass is fitted with black Schiller strap buttons although the originals will be included in the sale. The strings currently fitted are Fender black tape wounds which I have found complement this bass rather well.

I am asking £300 plus delivery to the UK. I feel this is a fair price taking into consideration the condition of the bass (only 2 years old) and the fact that it comes with a Cort hardcase. There is a big saving to be made here on the new price with case. I am not looking for any trades.

Specifications:-

Neck: Bolt on. 5 piece Wenge & Rosewood.

Fingerboard: Rosewood.

Body: Swamp Ash

Scale: 34"

Tuners: Hipshot Ultralight Tuners

Bridge: EB12

Pickups: Bartolini Mk1-4/F & Mk1-4/R

Electronics: Bartolini Mk-1 EQ / 1 volume, 1 blend, 3 band, EQ on-off switch

Hardware: Black

Weight: 6lbs (2.5kgs)

Bass chatters... I`ve had in My life: LTD ESP Fretless, Vintage Jazz Fretless, GMR Fretless and now have as above and tell You what - amazing bass for this price(!), just the neck and tuners is worth 300 quid IMO...

I wish Cort do passive version with 3 not 55......mean 5 knobs... ;)

BTW I think its rather 3.5kg, check Your scale bro.

They are great basses and certainly fantastic value for money. As to the weight, remember different basses weigh different amounts. I weighed twice using my trusty luggage scales which have never let me down. I'll split the difference with you and say 3kgs but even at 3.5kgs it ain't heavy. Put it this way, it's a light bass which you can wear all night!

Happy to oblige. Nut width is 38mm and from the middle of the E to the middle of the G at the bridge saddles is 57mm.

Pretty :) If it was a five, I'd definitely be interested. I have too many fours already... and I'm rubbish at unlined fretless.

Changed my mind on this one. Played it yesterday evening and it really does play above it's price tag. Something else will have to go though - watch this space!
