    A really crappy pic, but the good digital camera is packed:


    My '98 AmStd ash jazz, Moses unlined fretless neck, DiMarzio DP123 pickups.
  3. Only five have frets - the rest are without frets:

    Oh yeah... those are nice. Neck is real wide, though!

    I hear the fingerboards made out of something called Ebonol, it doesn't wear too fast. Now that is the bass of the future!

    It's strung with black tapewounds now. From a distance it looks like it has no strings. I need to take some new pictures.
