    Veillette Fretless Bass Guitar Builder: Joe Veillette Model: Mk-IV 4-String fretless bass Serial Number: 008, built June 1999. Similar to a Rob Allen but the eq gives much more tone control. Gigbag: original gigbag. Dimensions Scale Length: 34 inches. Neck Shape: oval. Width at Nut: 1 5/8 inches. String Width at Bridge: 2 5/16 inches. Overall Length: 41 3/4 inches. Widest: 12 1/4 inches. Depth: 2 1/16 inches. Weight: 7 1/2 pounds. Construction Neck: bolt-on, 1 piece maple, inset trussrod cover. Fingerboard: rosewood, unlined fretless, white side dots. Body: semi-solid, 2-piece poplar, quilted maple top. Finish: black satin urethane. Hardware Bridge: bubinga, dovetailed at bottom. Tuners: Gotoh Deluxe, black. Strap buttons: strap locks, black. Output: 1/4" phone jack, mono. Electronics Pickups: Alvarez piezo bridge. Controls: volume, 3 band EQ, mid-range contour. Preamp: Alvarez 500B. Condition: Finberboard wear: none. Superficial wear: some very small dings, mostly on body edges. Deep wear: one bad ding on the back side of the body next to the output socket, a couple of smaller dings and scratches on the lower edge of the body (possibly from a bad guitar stand), and one very small ding on top of the headstock. I am being very picky in the description. The bass is no way affected by any of these minor imperfections. Altogether this instrument has a very natural, organic feel and an absolutely perfect setup that makes it a real joy to play. The sound is wonderfully warm and round with tons of very nice growl. Very nice upright sound. The electronics are very easy to use and functional, easily integrating the sound of this bass into any musical environment.
