RA must have a great stock of wood.
That is sooo nice.
What is it, who makes it, and where can I (or can't I) get one? I think I'm gonna drill a hole in my keyboard so the can run out.
Rob Allen makes them, Jimmy Coppola at NY Guitar and Bass Boutique usually has a couple on hand...
Check out his site when you get a chance: http://www.guitarboutique.com
It's a Rob Allen mb-2 fretless. Here's a link to his site
Clubbass in Canada has some really nice pictures of Rob Allens in their inventory
Here's one in quilted maple
They're nice, but they pop up secondhand a lot.
Yeah that first one I posted is going for $1650 used in California
BP credited these basses with having a very double bass like tone.
Which they don't really. If you play them without any modification to technique, they just sound like a fretless BG. If you modify your technique, you can get it to sound double-bassy, but you can do that with a normal fretless too and some flatwounds.
Just think of them as fretlesses with a really clean look.
Rob Allens really are works of art... ()
Man, both of those are beauties, but the quilted maple one really makes my GAS level rise.
Go to the web site and take a look at the walnut burl top. Or the koa one here
