    You knocked off 0.32lbs? You actually made it even lighter? Whoa....new meaning to playing ‘air bass’

    The JRA fretless air bass! :)
    aka back saver bass!

    difference in neck weights? the schaller bridge is definitely heavier than the glarry bridge it replaces. the new machines are about the same as the glarrys i would think.

    but it's light, that's for sure!

    :laugh: too much! i would not hesitate to recommend the glarrys, especially if the player has any setup/mod chops. i don't need any more instruments, but it's tempting to think about all the things i/you/we can do with these as platforms. i'm guessing the glarry prices will only go up.

    but: you must share some of your work and/or experiences with the glarrys --- i think most TB snobs would poo poo these diamonds-in-the-rough, while missing out on the potential(s). ;)

    yes, it's good to go, although i did some nut filing. a young(er) TB member has already asked about it and i've elected to get it to him...so that he can play with it --- maybe become the next great fretless player!

    What site did you buy the neck from? Thanks your bass looks great! Here is 16063676-E721-4F37-841F-EA89CB79B4E0. 3CF49054-49A6-4417-8D35-1D0F7920D65D. a couple of pics of mine.

    thanks, it's my first P in decades (i consider them a one-trick pony :D ).

    i got the neck from china via ebay (free shipping on mine!?). here is one similar: Maple fingerboard maple 20 fret FRETLESS JAZZ bass neck electric guitar parts | eBay --- there have been 2-6 listed regularly, for months. mine seems to be 'holding' in the way it's supposed to do, but it's way too early to tell. i'll have to gig it, gig it, gig it.... i'm not sure, but i think they all come from DHgate via ebay.

    i thought about the yellow body for my maple neck (i wouldn't have needed the fretless glarry), but went with the "burlywood" after deliberation (mexican beer). even though the fretless was in the $90 range i wanted one to see it, hold it, smell it :D , etc. the glarry necks are too chunky for my regular playing, but cats who like that neck style would be pleasantly surprised, i'm sure!

    love that yellow with the gold! :thumbsup: did you use the krylon fusion paint? these pieces are just too much fun! :D

    here are a couple more shots (taken outside), but they're still a bit fuzzy --- my phone is cheaper than my axes :laugh: :

    I have to agree with you. They are beefy, but I don't think they're that bad as some baseball bat neck basses I've tried.

    Yes they are fun! The paint is Rustoleum “Universal” in Aged Copper Metallic. :) Your fretless looks great:thumbsup: BTW I reused the factory shims on the new neck.

    same: although i had to increase the angle for the fretless (down-as-low-as-you-can-go) thing. the factory shim wasn't thick enough for that.

    if glarry cut the neck pockets correctly they'd be worth twice as much! :laugh:

    i wouldn't hesitate to paint one if i wanted a color other than what is offered...seems like that's what they're for. if you do: must share the results! :thumbsup:
