Hi I bought this Alliance Fretless acoustic bass many years ago from Manchester Bass Center. I'm not going to say a know much about it. It's not a vintage Luthier made instrument by any means but it sounds nice to my ears both amplified and unamplified. It also looks quite nice too with some nice cream binding. One slight dink I've marked by the jack socket but nothing major at all. Low light today so pictures a bit tricky.
Has a simple 9volt preamp onboard.
No major fingerboard wear. Made in Korea. Played a lot but looked after.
Socially distanced collection fine.
I do have a large ish packaging box too if delivery needed but it is an acoustic instrument and would not take kindly to delivery man treatment if abused 🙂.
