NEW FRETLESS

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by 88tuner, Mar 31, 2004.


  1. Here's a new 5 string fretless I'm working on. So far I just have the maple neck and bubinga bottom rough cut. There will also be a thin maple strip in the middle of the body with zebra wood on the top, head, and fingerboard. I toying with the idea of making this a 34inch scale upright electric with a curved fingerboard.

    Finished pictures on a post below.
