    For sale is my Wishnevsky fretless. This bass was made before Steve started the Wishbass name. It has all of the standard wishbass features, 5 piece neck thru body construction, no truss rod (doesn't need one, trust me), single pickup, volume knob only. If you know what a wishbass is, this bass is everything you'd expect.

    The mods i've done are as follows:

    I shortened the finger board, it just made the bass more comfortable for me to play.

    I put a standard seymour duncan jazz pickup in it

    The bass was originally finished with paste wax. i stripped it and refinished it with tung oil.

    $275 shipped to the continental US

    I had some interest in this earlier this week, which made me realize i do need to sell it. It's a great bass, but i have a high dollar fretless 5, and i really can't justify keeping two fretless. So here's a very delayed BUMP.

    34"? Would I be correct in guessing it sounds like a Jazz on the bridge pickup?

    34" scale. It does have a jazz bridge tone, but it has a cool "earth" tone a little like an upright.

    looks like that pickup is placed a bit closer to the bridge than a standard jazz.



    i love wishbasses..
