    Beautiful Clement fretless, 32" scale. Bass is so new, you can still smell the finishing oil!

    Alto body model
    Spanish Cedar body
    Flame Maple top
    Padauk Neck w/Pau Ferro fb
    Hipshot hardware
    2 x Nordstrand Big Single pickups with the A3 option, (wired passively.)
    6.6 lbs.

    What's the deal? Here's the deal -

    I just picked up transition lenses. Now, I can't see the fretlines at all. (I use the fretlines as the quick glance adjustment if I hear strangeness coming out.) Now, all I see are the side dots, which has my brain all scrambled since the dots are in the middle of where the frets are. I keep thinking the dots are where they would be on a blank fretless; my hands keep naturally moving to them.

    I don't have more money to make this right for me, so I'm going to take it on the chin. My asking price is shipped CONUS and includes a Mono M80 gigbag. Paypal only.

    Thanks for looking.

    I'm losing a lot on this, but I realize it's a custom build with a scale that doesn't enjoy mass appeal.
