    This one is quite exotic:

    36" scale, extended B headstock and weird pu layout...

    I owned that bass for awhile. It's a ridiculous fretless. It has a 3" thick body made of Alder with a Claro Walnut back and a Chestnut top. It's a bolt-on with narrow spacing and a flat finger board. It sounds huge. The added mass makes a substantia difference. The bass was the second wide-body fretless made (just after Dave Beasley's amazing Beez-elite prototype).

    I sold it to a guy in the states who (I believe) still has it. That photo was taken at my house.

    If it's for sale again, I wouldn't hesitate to pick it up.

    FYI - It was custom built for a New York bassist named Mike Frost who was one of the original Fodera endorsees. If you get a chance to hear him play, do yourself a favor. He is an absolute monster of a player. He is a true virtuoso of the six string bass.
