    This is a one of a kind custom made fretless. It has an aguilar obp3 preamp with Kent Armstrong pickups. It has gotoh tuners and a hipshot bridge. It weighs 8.7 lbs on my scale. The board is ebony with one cool bass clef. As far as the woods specs are below. It comes with a flight case made for this bass. It's a double octave neck and there is a dot on top of the neck for each fret position. Looking for 1250 CONUS with west adding 25 IMG_6720.jpg IMG_6729.jpg IMG_6739.jpg

    You should check the "Fretless" flag for this listing, so that it comes up when people search for fretless basses.

    Wood grain looks like a leopard print. Very cool.

    Grandon is an AMAZING luthier and a great dude. He used to work on my basses back when I lived in Indiana. If this were a 5'er I'd consider it :)
