    HIi guys, here is a not so common new bass day !
    I got for near 10 years now a de-fretted (?) bass for lefthanded people
    (I'm not)
    This bass is stringed backwards by the first owner who used to learn and play the bass just inverting the instrument - so can be played by the most of us.
    I just found its righthanded fretless sister - serials show they were close at factory !
    Those were made in Japan in 1982 - big big quality here ! the ebony fretboard is stunning, even the new one is dirty.
    More details if interested, here are some pics :

    The fretless looks really cool. Have you thought about converting these into a dual neck ?
