    I really like it. With chrome flats it has that fat round funk sound that I love.

    Looks Devo sounds Motown.

    Ok, Here's a pic of a bass I used to have. It's a Tokai Jazz Sound. I have a fretless bass just like it.. In the background is my upright and that thing under all the junk is a piano I got at Goodwill for $150. Cheaper than the Tokai, even with the shipping to the house, which almost doubled its price!

    Oh, the cat wasn't meant to be in the picture, she just sorta walked into the room and decided to be in the shot. Her name, if you're curious, is Lulu.

  11. Hi, John, thanks for the compliment on my "baby"! That's the bass that cast a spell and got me back into playing. That is a rosewood fretboard, believe it or not. The Jazz next to it has a pao ferro. Here is a link to the specs on my bass if you're interested:
    http://www.rickenbacker.com/us/4001v63.htm

    There are some beautiful basses on display here, guys! What is the deal with those rail basses? I know of them, but have never heard one; how are they? Brooks, that John Turner fretless is sweet: are those partial frets along the E, or just markers? I've seen little short lines on Sting's fretless from the 80's....great idea!

    Slaphappy, those are fret markers, just under the E string. They end in a little green abalone circle. On the side of the neck, those lines end in circles in positions where you would normally have them on the fingerboard. Fingerboard is pau fero, and it sounds real sweet.

    Here is my other fretless - an early 1970's Hohner, hollowed/carved maple body, with bolt-on all maple neck/fingerboard, and also inlaid fret markers only under the E string:
