    By any chance does anyone know what brand/model this is?

    I'm scratching my head on this one. Is it a Birdsong?

    Going by the pickguard curves, I'd think Jake Marchlewski.

    I'm always amazed at how many little designs we came up with so long ago, show up nowadays.

    Sorry for the late reply, I am not really active on this forum here but this is one of the first Adamovic SuperNova basses ever built. I think it is from 2003. One piece zebrano body with a greenheart fingerboard.
    You can find more pictures here: http://www.adamovic.nl/1B/Basses/SuperNova/SN4.htm

    Edit: discovered a bad spelling

    I played Mike Montgomery's singlecut fretless, it was pretty nice.
