    Everyone has to be bored with my basses by now, but since you asked for trans black.

    Thanks! as stated above it's a Bolin NS. EMG/piezo setup. I've never played fretless before, and I am pleasantly surprised by the ease with which I have taken to it. So far the partial lines have been more than enough to guide me, and the intonation is great. Supposedly it was the first fretless Bolin NS, but I haven't been able to verify that. I emailed Bolin guitars about the bass and never received a response. I'm very happy with the bass, especially for the price I paid, which I thought was very reasonable. It was by far the most inexpensive bass of the trio pictured. I'm looking forward to playing it more in a band situation. That's sort of the true test of my fretless "skills."
     
  11. Nice one. I'm frankly jealous :spit: :p

  15. My trans black. It's pretty subtle, but she's stealth.

    Great review as always. Brian B. has one on his site which he is apparently pretty smitten with.

    What's the make & model, Petary? I don't recognize the profile, but I like the lines - a lot. :cool: The neck looks pretty manageble for a sixer. Headstock looks kind of like a Ken Smith...

    Dingwall Afterburner1. Slightly obsolete pic - I recently installed an OBP-3 with a blend pot, so it now has 5 knobs.
