  • Upgraded To Another Fretless

    I liked my $9 fretless bass so much, I decided to
    upgrade.

    I bought a Washburn T12 off CL for $60. It had
    a wide Ibenez type neck. I de-fretted it and I
    took it down in size like I did on my other bass.
    The neck is a tad smaller than a jazz neck now.

    Here's my new fretless on a budget,







    Bodie likes it too,



    Thanks for lookin,

        One could always use binding material. Works a treat.

          Nice basses, those Washburns, I've played them. Feel, balance, sound okay. And looks like you did a nice job on the neckwork.

          But, to me, the design is too much of a rip-off of Jerzy Drozd's designs. And owning 2 JD's, having compared, I think I feel confident in saying that.
          YUM!!!
