    Here is a real nice Tobias Grower fretless 5 string. This one is in fantastic condition. Almost like-new. Still has the protective covering on the electronics cavity plate. All original. These are certainly hard to come by, even more so the fretless variants with Wenge lined fingerboards. If you've been looking for a nice specimen, here's your chance.

    Real nice swamp ash grain. These older version with the dual switches are highly sought after. Very cool preamp/pickup configuration. There is essentially two pickups inside one housing. So you have stacked treble and bass controls for each set of four coils. Plus a three way mid switch for each set of coils. Then you have pickup pan to pan between both sets of coils. Inside the control cavity you have rotary dials to adjust frequencies. Very cool and highly versatile with a whole lot of tone. Currently strung with brand new DR Pure Blues.

    Will come with original hardshell case. Case does have some scuffs on it but is fine otherwise. Bonus: original truss rod tool included.

    One very tiny "knick" in the headstock (see pictures) and the fretboard has slight mars for strings. Very minimal though. It is a used bass so I might have missed something but it would be minor if I did. Guess this one is the definition of "closet queen".

    Love the asymmetrical neck on these basses. Super easy to play with low action. I'm not playing fretless much these days so this one is up for your consideration.

    $1250 shipped CONUS. Might be interested in a trade for a fretted 5-string bass. If you have a GK Plex, I'm interested in trying one of those so would consider that as part of a sale arrangement. Please send offers via PM. Thanks.

    You may want to put fret less in the title

    Just 8.3 lbs. according to digital bathroom scale. Play it all night at that weight!

    Nice! Do you know the string spacing and scale length (34 or 35)?
