Anyone like bass guitars?

Dodgy rythym and thick strings here...

I think the ball ends either don't "fit" or "catch" in the holes.

It was long ago and far away, but I'm sure they went in there. Happy to admit my memory is shite :)

Righto

Normal strings go through there
Then screw down a hexagonal piece to hold in place

I don't have the hexagonal clamps nor know where the rest of the normal string would go.

I'm selling my daughter's fretless bass on trademe.
It's a Cort and has acoustic powerbridge pick up as well as Bartolini electric pickup.

She was desperate to have a fretless but of course you have to be pretty confident in your ear etc to play a fretless out - and she went to fretted pretty quickly :D .

Rubber monkey is the only site that has them and is priced at $1295 - I'm sure we paid a lot less than that.

Anyway thought I'd try my luck at $800 start - is that high?

They keep telling me tone is in the fingers, but I have yet to see a "look at my fingers" thread.
