Shuker PJ Bass (III) fretless

Recommended Posts

Our live set is diversifying and a fretless is becoming very useful, tried it with my fretless ray but the sound is just too different from my Shuker Nr1 so I'm scoping out a fretless PJ to complement my Nr1 & Nr2 Shuker P basses...then I really am done...I think...

Here's the top wood, Burr Elm rescued from the great Sheffield tree cull by a friend of Jons'

The body will be swamp ash again to keep the core sound similar to my fretted P basses.
Seymour Duncan SPB-1 as per my other basses but adding an SJB-1b at the bridge so I can mix it in occasionally for that extra mid fretlessy-ness.
Ebony fingerboard cos Jon has found a lovely piece of dark Ebony.

Really does look like (a woman's) body.

Now, now, lets not get personal. I wonder what you'd look like when you're 300 years old and sliced up :P

Isn't the one on the left male and the one on the right female?

Been quiet for a wee while on this as Jon has had a busy LGBS and then had some guys in on a course doing builds but here's a bit of progress, body all together and the top carve/shape/bend has been done. Neck is well underway, fingerboard is on, side markers fret ticks are in...

Lovely :gas:
