VM59k Fretless?

Postby jovsiew » Fri Jun 16, 2017 7:07 pm

Has anyone thought of doing one of these? Not a builder option, pretty sure they'd do it. Looking for thoughts and opinions.

Jeff said in a QandA video that they would do it.

I can't remember if he specified, but probably not returnable.

I have actually thought of this (unmarked), but that's as far as it will go because I have two fretless basses that don't see much playing time already.

They will do it. Heck, they will do their guitars fretless and they will also add the epoxy to the board of a fretless guitar if asked.

All-hog is super. Get what looks good to you and feels good to you.

Get it with a tung oil finish, an ebony fingerboard, and black hardware. Should come out great.
