I've got a bass which I bought about a year ago, i was told it was built by Wilkes an English guitar maker who tried his hand on basses. The bass is either Oak, or Walnut body with Ash thru-neck!! (this is what ive been told so it may be wrong, not too good with recognising woods) The fingerboard is rosewood, it has Shaller bridge and tuners, Reflex active pickups - with "the black box" It was once fretted but someone has ripped the frets out and is now fretless, the design is quite unique. It has that pointy bottom like the Alembics, the headstock has a "W" on the top designed like a eagle with its wings spread!! Im guessing mid to late 80's!! I will post a pic as soon as i work out how!! Ive found a maker by the name of Wilkes but nothing about basses?? If anyone knows anything please share with me!!
