    I recently (well, last summer actually) bought a 2nd hand fretless 5 from the Bass Centre in London made by a company called Chard. However, I've been searching on the net for information about them and I can't find any mention of them what-so-ever.

    The guy in the shop told me that he thought Chard are a small company based in the Essex area around London, but didn't know any more than that. It's starting to bug me now!

    If it helps, it's a natural finish J-style bass with EMG J-Type pickups.

    Has anyone heard anything at all about these basses as I'm at a loss.

    :confused:

    Cheers guys!

    Can't say that I've ever heard of them. More importantly how does it play??? I take it that you are happy with it - seeing as you wanna know more about it!

    It plays absolutely beautifully. From what I do know about it, I think it was custom made for someone who then decided fretless wasn't for them. Fretless is, however, definately for me! It's all I play when I'm on my own - my stingray's getting lonely :(
