  1. Considering a commission sale now, so I may withdraw this at the end of the week.
  2. I'm not sure either, but I suppose you could make several adjustments using the harmonics each time.
  3. That's all I've ever done on unlined fretless basses and it's worked well enough. If there's a better technique I'd be interested to hear it.
  4. Encore E83 unlined fretless, c. 1994. I don't have any pictures from the time, but here's a similar one: https://www.adverts.ie/electric-basses/encore-e83-fretless-bass/10664187
  5. Yes; I've only ever bought a single bass with frets and it has lasted less than a year before being offered for sale, soon after I got a decent fretless.
  6. I've decided that I rather fancy a new amplifier, so I'll reduce the price (postage extra ;-) for a week or two in the hope of encouraging some interest.
  7. Should anyone be interested then please feel free to consider making an offer.
  8. Indeed - if only it were a sunburst body! ;-)
  9. Thanks. Here's what it looks like without the scratchplate:
  10. Drop to £400, though if my other bass sells (see https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/342088-2004-japanese-jazz-feeler/) I'll withdraw this and try my hand at a respray in a colour I like.
  11. Unfortunately, I hate lines on a fretless and the side dots would be in the wrong position for me, otherwise I'd do exactly that.
  12. As this is the best-looking jazz I've seen (IMO) I'm not entirely sure I want to sell it, but now I've got fretless basses to my liking it simply doesn't get played, and some money might be useful. I've enquired about getting a maple fretless neck made, but without success. I bought it from a Japanese seller last year (unfortunately not realising quite how much I'd be fleeced by HM Customs), and since then it has been set up by Dave Smart (September 2018, IIRC). The strings are Rotosound 77s, 45/65/85/105. There's a gig bag with it, unless anyone buys my "spare" fretless first (they won't). It survived the journey from Japan in this and so might be postable, though collection would be preferred. More photos in this album: https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0XGY8gBYGSllWq There are a few chips and marks here and there but in general it is pretty good, I think. As it's a 70s-style reissue the stacked knobs are presumably not the original configuration.
  13. I've got a 15w one which is pretty good for practice and was wondering about upgrading to one which would be loud enough to play jazz gigs/jams, e.g. in pubs. Any idea what size would be sufficient? The weight of the 100 looks good but some of the reviewers on Thomann complain of the low volume. I used to use a Trace Elliot BLX130SM, which was fine by itself even in loud pubs, but the ~25kg weight is a bit too much these days.
  14. Also, from what I can tell the Eastwood one has a solid body and the Ampegs were hollow or semi-hollow (someone please correct me if I'm mistaken). I asked Eastwood a couple of times for some more information on this bass, esp. details of what markers are on the neck, but they never got back to me so I bought something else.
  15. A tasteful and reserved album cover from 1971:
