Selling a Kona Walking bass, basically unused, new condition. I bought this many years ago and it sits in the corner of my music room, I guess I'm just not a bass player, only plugged it in a few times. These sell new for 500.00, I'll take 375.00 + shipping.

Sign up to the Talk Bass forum and sell it there, I'm sure there will be some interest.

Hang in there. Some time back, I had an unusual uke for sale. One fella sent me several PM's explaining why it was not a good instrument and why I should price it lower. My uke eventually sold to someone that appreciated I for what it was.

Give it time, bad time of year for a lot of people with Xmas & the like.
Plus it's an unusual instrument, which I would imagine would be more likely to sell to a guitarist.

I think it's very cool and unusual, but it would probably sit in a corner at my house, too.

No disrespect but its a premium bass diddly bow more or less. I cant see there being a giant waiting list of people looking for such an instrument, much less on a/an ukulele forum, in two or three days time.

The advice to advertise it on a bass forum was solid and not in the least bit disrespectful. Nobody is telling him its a bad instrument after all... unless I missed something.

The fret less aspect kills it for me.

Thanks for the comments. These were pretty popular with uke groups a few years back.

It's a fun instrument. If I have some accounts pay their bill this week, I may hit you up

I think the key word here is "were". The u-basses have kind of stole it's thunder.

No doubt. The Kona Walking bass is billed as a stand up bass sound, but easy to play, that is the appeal. 3 strings, fretless, fret markers arranged chromatically, bar up and down and you can play within minutes. But you can't sit and play it like the Kala.

Sorry, didn't mean to come across as bashing. I was just explaining one possibility as to the OP why it hasn't gotten the attention they had hoped for. My apologies.

If the OP feels wronged I invite them to PM me otherwise please keep your evil interpretations of our conversation to yourself.

I see two people helping the OP and two here to only judge how we helped... Quite interesting no?

Good luck. Maybe a quick video showing how it sounds will expedite a sale.

This should link to a facebook page which you can look at to check out the Kona Walking bass for yourself. It is a very useful instrument for a ukulele group, as well as other groups. And it is designed to be played by people who are not old worn out bass players. It also has an interesting history and could be called legendary or ground breaking by some.
