Alright guys, I've been out of the bass game since I sold my Spector Rebop 5 last July because of a really piss poor situation involving jobs and bills, and now I have a lot of time on my hands after work so I figured I'd try out this cheap fretless 6 string I found on Craigslist.
I have no idea what brand it is. The guy said there was a sticker on the headstock that said "Albatross" or something, but an Internet search has yielded no results.
It's definitely been modified. An EMG 45DC is in the bridge position, and he had made a wooden set bridge and modified the body to allow for thru-body stringing.
After I took it home I reinstalled the stock bridge and cleaned it up. I have yet to fully finish setting it up and need to grab some solvent to remove some sticky stuff, but it's generally playable. It's stung with steels, and it has pretty good tone when played through the tiny Epiphone Studio 10S amp that is my pathetic setup right now. The tuners need tightened, and don't seem to hold tune that well, which is not what I like to see on a fretless, and the bridge is not the nicest piece ever but I'm not expecting Hipshot quality on a no-name Craigslist bass.
I figure that if a 6 string fretless is the only electric bass I have, I'm kind of forced to get proficient at it and any other bass will seem relatively easy. Those were my thoughts when purchasing it and I don't really care what anyone else thinks about that, so please hold off on flaming me for buying an advanced instrument
Here are the pics, tell me what ya think and let me know if you recognize the shape or anything, I'm interested in knowing a little bit about it. http://25.media.tumblr.com/e2b163c32...e0io1_1280.jpg http://25.media.tumblr.com/3a9b4bac8...e0io2_1280.jpg http://25.media.tumblr.com/2eaafbdaf...e0io3_1280.jpg
