About This Listing

This is a mid 90s prototype headless fretless 6 string -- It looks a lot like the stuff Sanox was doing at the time (It shares the same custom hardware as the Sanox Leduc Logabasses, in fact), and may have been made by them? From the research I conducted on these around the time I bought it, they were made 6 prototypes, a fretted and fretless version of a 4, a 5, and a 6 string. You can find various pictures of the 4 strings and the 6 string fretted and fretless(this one) online.

Action is razor blade low, neck is super flat, truss rods work perfectly. When I got it, it had GOTOH pickups in it and a GOTOH preamp that the previous owner put the 9v in backwards and fried the PCB. So I put in a EMG Preamp and later some bartolinis.

I really hate to sell this but I just got a bass I've been wanting for a long time so up this goes.

There's a couple of dings in the clear which I've documented and some swirling here and there on the finish that'd probably buff out easy, but it's in otherwise great shape.

Bass will be tremendously well packed, double boxed, and shipped in a gig bag .
I'm willing to entertain offers so please shoot me an offer!
