Warmoth Precision neck with ebony board, no idea about body wood, but it weighs marginally less than Gibraltar. Sustains for ever. Wizard '64s. Offered it for sale here, no one wanted it. In retrospect I'm rather happy about that :)

Marco Bass Guitars MV fretless build in progress. I won't decide on control config and electronics package until I get a chance to hear the proprietary neodymium sidewinder pickups Marco has wound specifically for this bass. That's a purpleheart fingerboard, maple neck, maple top wings, and not sure on  the core wood.

A Basschat Bitser - ex-Beedster 70's neck on a stripped 90-'s re-issue body, with DiMarzios.  Luverly...

My current fretless squeeze... OLP Ray body, Jaydee neck with mostly-unlined ebony board, EMG-HZ pickup, as yet passive electrics. Future plans are to squeeze some sort of 3-band eq in there. For the moment, I'm loving it just as it is. It plays beautifully and sounds better.

After quite a few gigs I still think the Electro I bought off @Hellzero is on of the nicest looking and sounding fretless basses I ever owned.

GMR Bassforce. Surprisingly heavy for such a small body. Wonderful sustain.

My OLP may have been a fretted 5er, but it's still one of 'the ones that got away' for me. Wicked bass, which I will probably always miss.

While, much like giving up drinking, I'm a long way from ever having 'the bass', an Electro 4 (possibly headless, possibly passive, possibly short scale, is a bloody good contender!

Isn't it 🙂 

Don't know what it is, but GMR specialise (or did) in lavish use of luxury exotic woods. My fretted Bassforce 5 has a solid bubinga neck where most luthiers would have used a veneer.
