  1. So I added a fretless yesterday, a Capelli 6 fretless. It is purple, with Maple body, flamed maple top, flamed gaboon ebony board and maple neck.
    A single bartolini pickup with vol and tone. It sound good, review to come later! :hyper:

    My first fretless, it sounds great and fell very good to play. I ever tried to play songs, can be hard sometimes, but very interesting.

    That's an interesting body shape. Did you come up with it?
  5. Hi sorry, I don't get it!
    Do you mean if I designed the bass?
    If so, the answer is no, that's the "official" body shape of Capelli Basses...

  6. Love the color !!!! :D IM a big viking fan and love purple !!!:hyper: I know you must love your new addition !!!!!:bassist: :bassist: :bassist:

    I like it. It's a little BC Rich, a little Rick, a little ESP F series.

    I'd hit it.

    Cool! Reminds me of a not-lame version of the Warwick Vampire.

    Mais qu'elle est belle! j'en aimerais une! Belle couleur, c'étais chère?

    (hehheh, my french sucks, I havn't really spoken, or written in french for a good ten years, lol.) ;)

    Nice bass, though :)
  11. Thats a very nice headstock.. probably the nicest on a headless.

    Personally, i'm not a fan.
    If you rounded off the edges a bit, i'd be my favourite bass!

    Rock them in good health Vince. Enjoy ! :bassist:
  15. Héhé!
    No they're not really expensive, around 2600€ for a fretless 6, this one is used, so less expensive. :smug:

    Thanks major!

    Lovely trio.

    I agree that the JP looks terrific. A real pity he´s no longer building basses. Enjoy them !!

    Hang on tight to that JP! It's bound to be a real collectors piece one day...maybe. It's gorgeous and I think it's the best headless design ever bar none. I love the other two also!

    I thought the headless would be my favourite, but then I spotted a chrome bridge! however, that F Bass looks stunning, and I'm not usually partial F bass!
