I got this a little while ago from my TB friend Kevin for one of my advanced students who wanted to try his hand on a fretless. Well...I just wound up buying it back...the kid gave up It is a mid-late '80's "Made In Japan" Vantage Artist Series VS-695B four string unlined fretless bass in very deep transparent cobalt blue, almost black. Has just a few very minimal nicks on it, but is in overall very, very nice shape!! Has super Seymour-Duncan ACTIVE pickups with 3 rocker switches built right into the pickups for really broad tonal variations....VERY RARE PUPS indeed! VERY low action and super easy playing on an ultra-straight mahogany neck. Just had a first-rate setup by my tech too. Great for a pro, but its also a great bass to test your chops on a fretless without breaking the bank. Factory polished brass nut too. If you are a fretless player and are looking for mwahhh....this is it!! This on one great sounding and playing fretless!! Swaps for fretted 4-strings are fine...or drop me a PM if you would like to make an offer.
