    Just picked this up a few weeks ago and naturally there's now something else I've just got to have. Older model Soundgear 885 lined fretless 5 (color is Jewel Blue I believe) with an epoxy finished fingerboard. Bartolini pickups and Bartolini preamp (bass boost/cut, treble boost/cut, mid boost/cut with 3-position mid frequency shift). I'm in the middle of replacing one scratchy pot. Everything else is functionally fine. Body shows some wear, as does the fingerboard, but nothing that affects playability. My camera seems to be dying a slow lingering death but I think I can borrow another one from work and get some pictures up ASAP. Asking $400 shipped.

    First set of pictures. I took the strings off to give the fretboard a good polishing.

    Is it a Thor epoxy job?

    Not that I can tell. I can't see any evidence of the little bit of holographic paint that Thor leaves towards the end of the fingerboard as a signature.
