Description

A Reverb purchase. The only knocks against this bass are it is a tad heavy and one of the volume knobs is scratchy (though once set, there is no noise). The cream-colored body and the tortoiseshell pickguard complement each other nicely. Straight neck (except for the normal slight bow). Tuners are in great shape. No significant cosmetic defects. It’s a helluva budget fretless.

Serial Number: CZ17070

Here is the Reverb seller’s description.

This is a jazz style fretless with passive electronics. It doesn't have any major blemishes but does shows some light wear.  I think it will be a great option for the bassist who has an interest in trying a quite decent fretless but doesn't want to put a lot of money into the experiment

Note: This is not a new bass.  There is some noise in the pots when turned, but quiet operation can be achieved by turning volumes all the way up and leaving them there. Fiddling with the volumes while jacked into your amp will deliver some little crackling noises and a hum at points. 

Before I bought this bass, someone had strung "regular" (round wound) strings on and small textures were left on the fretboard.  I restrung with flats which I preferred.  The flats feel great on your hands and are worth a go if you haven't tried them.  It sounds weird to say this but after playing this for a while it actually felt to me that frets got in the way of my playing when I switched back to my fretted basses...  too bad my pitch isn't better.  I really enjoyed the feel of this bass in my hands.

Finally, please note: there is a very small crack in the body where the neck meets it. (It's on the upper edge, see picture.)  I figure it's just cosmetic, but don't really have anything to base that on other than the fact that it's pretty small.
