    Hello
    I am the new happy owner of this headless and I have a question : the fretboard is made of wood (rosewood maybe) and no composite material as it's often seen on the photos found on the internet.
    The fretboard looks original (the lacquer from the neck is continuous to the sides of the fretboard) and I don't see any trace of a luthier's work/repair.
    Is it a special one ? The serial number begins with 91, so it was made in 1991. I have no other information.
    Thanks

    That’s interesting! Did not know these were available with rosewood, I acquired a very similar bass a few months ago but mine has the phenolic fingerboard

    Nice catch :)
    Do you like it ?
    I really enjoy this headless, good balance, good tone, really nice bass.

    I like it a lot, electronics are great, mine needed a lot of work to make playable still ironing out the kinks, I’m curious where your serial number is located? Mine doesn’t seem to have one.
