Fretless Friend

I am the proud new owner of a fretless bass! This black beauty is a 1998 Fender Jazz Bass, made in Mexico.

First thing I did was remove the pickup cover, which you can see looks like an ash tray in the pictures below. Underneath I discovered an after market “Badass Bass II” bridge which the previous owner must have added for sustain, pretty cool. Popped the thumb rest off too.

This guy will see its debut tonight at Dino’s!
