    Too many to be "best lookin" But this chambered fretless by Basslabs catches my interest -

    They were just in the USA for the first time at the just-ended NAMM show in the SWR booth.

    A stock pre-CBS Precision or Jazz, in sunburst with it's original nitrocellulose finish still looks beautiful, too.

    This one really "tickles my fancy," if you will ;)

    Not sure what brand, but it's equipped with a neck-thru graphit neck... pretty cool, huh? :)

    A custom carved out precision bass style instrument that was converted to a 5-string fretless with Alembic pickups. A date underneath the neck heel indicates that it was built in 1974 but I think the neck is from a late 60's Fender P or J-bass.
