F Bass Fretless Bass, Maple and Poplar, 1982

F Bass Fretless Bass, Maple and Poplar, 1982

This F Bass Fretless bass uses three woods – Flamed Maple for the neck, Poplar for the wings, and African Blackwood for the fingerboard. It uses a neck-through construction. For hardware, Schaller tuners are at the head, and a Leo Quan Badass bridge with a riser. Electronics are passive and consist of a Aguilar AG4J-HC pickup in the bridge position, paired with a Hi-A (High-Asymmetry) pickup in the neck position. This bass originally shipped with a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup in the bridge position.

Kubicki Factor Fretless Bass Metallic Teal, 1990

Philip Kubicki started off working for Fender, and set out on his own to explore his own ideas of what a bass could be. The Kubicki Factor Bass first appeared as a limited production item in 1983. Once one of the first built was used by John Taylor of Duran Duran during a Saturday Night Live appearance, demand rose sharply. These basses were built in Santa Barbara, California.

❌SOLD❌ Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexiglass Fretless Bass, 1969

❌SOLD❌ Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexiglass Fretless Bass, 1969

Here we have an Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexiglass Fretless Bass, built in 1969 likely at the Ampeg facility in Linden, New Jersey. It’s a full 34 inch scale with 1 9/16 nut width, and weights in at 10.34 pounds – this weight is one of the drawbacks of the body material. The neck is maple with a flat-sawn Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard, which at the time was very commonly used on quality instruments. There is some wear to the covering of the pickup, and the body has some light scratching, as expected for an instrument of this age. It appears to be in original condition, with an extra washer added to support the output jack – this is always a vulnerable area.
