    Yes - I finally connected with the seller and we made a bass trade w/cash. It's a very cool fretless.

    I like it as an artistic interpretation of the concept, but it's not "authentic" looking.

    '67 Gibson Melody Maker currently on eBay (no affiliation) Especially cool is the way the finish faded from metallic cherry red to copper on the back and bronzegold on the front!

    I've never owned a CAR bass - but would be tempted for a vintage J that looked like that! :bassist:

  13. I like that. Just a teeny whiff of copper, but plenty of red. That's nice.

  14. That's interesting they masked off the neck for a natural finish but the body is a color. I guess the owner went with a giant hunk of bridge to go with the monster hunk of nut. It's an intriguing bass.

    What a beauty. Until recently I never cared much for CAR, but with finishes like this and more so like the Melody Maker, it’s really help change my mind about the color.

    That's what I like about it also, any red has got to be a good red or it's just... red. :sleep:
