Godin A5 Fretless 5-String Bass Natural 2006

The Godin A5 fretless 5-string bass is an interesting instrument. It is the logical progression of guitars built for Chet Atkins by Gibson. Chet had shifted almost totally to using nylon stringed guitars, but there are well known problems with classical guitars and high stage volumes. Gibson produced the Chet Atkins CEC – Cutaway Electric Classical, a somewhat chambered mahogany slab with spruce top and set mahogany neck, built to use nylon strings and with a six-element piezo bridge pickup.
