I have been eyeing up a fretless for a while for the lolz for the past few months. Not sure why, I just think it'd be cool to play around with one.
So one night, after getting a few drinks, I message a member on basschat.co.uk and managed to sort something.
Group shot! Missing the Carvin though, it now lives at the studio.
This is a 1992 Nirvana Black Warwick Corvette Proline 4 string bass, with an all Wenge neck. This is the first for many things such as: fretless, Warwick, flatwounds and 4 stringer (that was decent!). It's an absolute breeze to play but staying in tune is another matter. The neck is smooth as and the Wenge feels fantastic. The body has a bit of battle scar scratches on it which contributes a bit of character to the bass; the overall dark aesthetics of this bass is a nice change from my many maple instruments.
Well, that kicks ass.
