Pictures of Lex Luthier's 5-String Fretless Bass


Recommended Posts

Pics

SPECS:

1-piece Rock Maple neck

Lightly flamed Ebony fingerboard

2-piece locally cut Western Walnut, could be called Claro I guess

Hand rubbed oil finish

Allparts gold hardware

Allparts humbucker pickup

Push-pull treble booster

Series/Parrallel mini-switch

Self-designed glueless dovetail neck joint

The woman I sold this to has just ordered another one from me, but with a thinner neck, and narrower body. I may also use an alchohal based dye-stain, in a burgundy-ish color for the body of the new one.

I have a question about the playability... looks like there is almost no extra fretboard next to the two outer strings... isn't it hard to play then?? Seems that you can push/pull the strings right off the board when you play it :D

But the whole guitar is a looker though B)

The customer doesn't seem to have a problem with it.
