    This is an amazing fretless bass.

    ~ Its got a crazy Spalted maple top with maple neck.
    ~ Alder body
    ~ Bolt-on Maple neck
    ~ Unlined ebony board
    ~ New Benvente preamp
    ~ It has a Dimarzio Ultra Jazz in the bridge and custom Dimarzio Dual coil in the neck. Both have matching Spalted covers.
    ~ Black Hipshot hardware to match the board.

    It's a sweet sounding bass, really sings and with the Ultra Jazz at the bridge gets a great Jaco tone. The picture below is decent but it looks like there are some smudges/marks that are not there, just tricks of the flash. This thing is near-mint with the exception of a tiny nick on the corner of one pickup cover. E-mail for more pictures. Asking $1800 shipped (OBO) to the lower 48, no trades please. Need the cash. . .
