I’m selling my fretless 6 string as I’m switching to electric guitar. It’s passive, and has actually got a lovely mwah going on.

I would be happy to consider trades/px for guitars (not basses) or guitar amps, and could put cash towards if needs be.

Always worth asking, but I’m sorry, I’m completely in the dark as far as identification is concerned. Whatever they are, they sounded more than reasonable to my ears.

Btw, the dot markers on the side of the neck are positioned for a fretted bass, but the neck has never been cut for frets.

Yep but that's quite normal, seen the same on other basses that were born fretless

 

was courious about the neck wood? it's a bit dark to consider standard maple, but probably this information as well is missing right?

Looks like an old school Shine/ Harley Benton from back before Thomann took control of the ship. I remember seeing these all over eBay under a bunch of different names back in the day.

This is a guess though. I had a Shine in trans black which looked very similar. Nothing wrong with it at all.

It’s definitely not maple, the colour is much darker. I couldn’t say what it is though

Thanks for your insight 😊👍

The neck wood is almost certainly maple. The grain and flaming give it away.

The fretboard looks to rosewood but I could be wrong.

It could help to list the string spacing at the bridge as it looks very tight - in fact it doesn't look to deviate much from nut to bridge...

Yes, you’re absolutely right, thanks for pointing it out, I read “neck” and was answering with respect to fingerboard 🙄🤯🤦🏼‍♂️. I think you’re on the right track with the rosewood also.

 I will sort out string spacing details when I get it weighed.
