Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

These are actually hollowbodies. Not sure about the body wood. All the ones I've seen are fretless.

Not bad... ;)
Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

I agree.  Those have always appealed to me.

I've found the Matsumoku instruments to be well assembled with good woodwork and finish. I really like my early 70's "Coily" (335-copy) Univox hollowbody.

There are a couple of those on Reverb, although I think the prices are high on both.

Don't see too many shortscale fretless basses. Those fretboard dots could be a bit more discreet. I prefer fretted electric basses and so does George Porter Jr. Came across this pic of him with an EB that the drummer Ziggy Modeliste shared. Figured this was as good a place as any to post it. Wonder if this thing got tracked on any Meters songs?
Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.
