Aria Pro Custom Shop Steve Bailey Signature fretless 6-string $1100
Aria Pro Steve Bailey Signature Fretless six-string Custom Shop Prototype Bass
This is a used bass that has been my main fretless for many years. I have switched to a fretless FBass and donít feel the need for this one any more.
I studied with Steve at Musicianís Institute and this particular bass was one of a few prototypes made by the Aria Custom Shop for him. It features an ash body, beautiful black ebony fretboard, slim stable maple neck and Basslines pickups. I am not sure what the preamp is, but it has two stack knobs, one with volume/balance that can be pulled to mute the output and a bass/treble know that can be pulled for a mid boost Steve used for solos.
I filed the C-string saddle a little to get the action where I wanted.
This bass is extremely comfortable and easy to play, has a solid low end and growly midrange, e.g. exactly what you want in a fretlessÖ
Comes with a padded leather strap, strap locks and ships in a basic gig bag, bubble wrap and an oversized cardboard box.
Price is $1100 shipped in the ConUS. Will consider international shipping for actual shipping cost.
