Fred’s fretless bass

This bass is going to be a fretless copy of the bass pictured in this gallery.  The finish will be different but the dimensions and shape will be the same.  I have the original bass in the shop to copy the shapes and take measurements.  I built the first bass for myself years ago and did not make any templates, so the only way to make the two instruments the same is to literally trace the original.  I have all the materials in hand now and work progresses.  Tempered Maple neck, Ebony fingerboard, Swamp Ash body that will have a ceruse style finish.  Chrome hardware and Aguilar pickups.
