    Aye, we are now treading in the fringes of bass (or not so bass) instruments. I 'd call it experimental stuff as in experimental music. Experimentation is good, sometimes to produce results elsewhere.

    If you offered me that thing for free I wouldn't accept it!. That thing is going to take one wide wall hanger.

    Imagine playing fretless, without a neck. This must be it.

    Omg, I played this Warwick, second row from the top, the black one on the left end of the row. I played it through the 4X10 Mark Bass rig sitting in the corner. It was a thing of beauty.

    If I remember right you have a couple of beauties other than Warwicks.......

    But if you ever get a chance try my personal favorite....a Streamer (preferably a Stage I, II or LX)

    Yeah, most of my stuff is Fender. I also played the brown one, third row from the top, third one in from the left. It looked awesome, but I really didn't like the way it played or sounded. I also played a red Rock Bass, which I actually really liked also. That black one though, it was killer.

    That does ring a bell... I think he made a bass for Abe Laboriel. Should be a great luthier with such a waiting list.

    Yeah, I believe he's made 2 or 3 for Mr. Laboriel. I think he keeps it to around 30 instruments a year. The Restrung documentary on YouTube piqued my curiosity and after some research I decided I had to have one... Here we are. I'll have a fretless 6'er sometime this year.
