Early 80's Fender Japan Jazz Fretless

Picked up this sweet Jazz fretless. Looks like it was hardly played. Took the pick guard off and replaced the stock bridge with a higher mass Gotoh bridge. Sounds great and love the color!

That's sweet!
I have always suspected fretless basses are like sports cars . . . they either get played every gig or live a dark life in their cases.
Nice find!

Thanks! That is just my practice amp, a GK MB112. But it comes out on some smaller gigs and sounds great.

...and yes, sadly my fretless pretty much lives in it's case.
