This is Darla and her serial number is 031711. She is a build that I entered into the Talkbass fretless 5 string build off. You can see the entire build and read my step by step commentary at:

The features of this bass are a quarter sawn flamed Hard Maple neck with a Gaboon Ebony finger board lined with Maple lines. Her scale is 33 inches. The neck has a Maple/Walnut heringbone veneer on the front and Walnut veneer on the back. The neck is bound with Flamed Maple.
Her body is a Purpleheart back with a Walnut/Maple heringbone top. She is carved in a Carl Thompson style shape as he has been such a big influence on my style of building.
Her hardware is all Hipshot and her pickups are EMG Jazz 3.0 with a Vol/Vol/Tone setup. 9 Volt.
Her tone is dark and warm with plenty of “mmwaaah” to go around.
She is 1.70 inches at the nut and her string spread is .669 inches between the strings at the bridge. She weighs 9.2 pounds.
