Brice Douglass Jazz 5 Fretless. For those not in the know, Brice is Korean made by the same folks as the Essex (SX) line, but to a higher level of quality. Beautiful metalflake blue finish, white pickguard, ebony fingerboard. It's absolutely unbelievable how well this bass plays and sounds. I spent some time giving it a thorough setup including setting nut slot height, intonation, trussrod adjust, and saddle height. I also removed the dots on the side of the neck that were in the wrong place, and put new white dots in the correct places. Then I added a set of bartolini J5 pickups that I scored here for $85...these really warmed and fattened up the bass's tone nicely. Currently strung with new D'Addario nickelrounds, this thing plays, sounds and growls wonderfully. List price of $189+$85 in the pups has me at about $275... She's all yours for $175, complete with the new strings!
