A new one of these just sold on EBay for $2600 and it didn't have the optional figured Walnut body that this beauty has. From the Turner web site:
"These basses provide a rich palette of tones from realistic upright to cutting rock. They deliver a much broader frequency range than traditional basses. 4-string= 34" scale and fretless fingerboard. Thomastik-Infeld Acousticore strings deliver melodic, punchy tones right down to a thunderous low B. All weighing in at less than 5.5 lbs!" (This one weighs 5 lbs. 6 oz.)
This beautiful USA made Fretless Rick Turner plays & sounds GREAT- very natural and much like an upright. She has been played a bit at Church & has a moderate number of minor scratches & little nicks. The plastic plate holding the input jack cracked, was replaced at Turner & cracked again. All function just fine so it was not repaired a second time. Perhaps Turner will replace it? Includes a very fine blonde Tolex hardshell case. GREAT instrument and priced right.
