I chose this one as lefties are hard to find, and I feel the value for buck is pretty good.

Korean made 6 string fretless with bubinga top and matching headstock overlay, 5 piece laminated maple and rosewood neck that attaches via 6 bolts, very stable and strong. Strings feed through the back on this 35" scale bass, and sustain is pretty good, considering the flatwounds. 'B' string is pretty dead sounding and thwappy in tone. I will be looking to do the fretboard in epoxy as soon as I can afford it so it can be strung with roundounds. Unlined fretboard, side dots only, finish is a red wine type color with a satin sheen. Tuners are like Gotohs, but are of unknown make, non locking. Active/passive option by pulling up the volume control. Two truss rods adjust at the headstock.
Action is about medium, has a fair amount of 'mmwaaa', the fretboard has a high spot on the treble side which will be addressed when I level it for the epoxy coat. It is my first fretless, so I cannot compare it to any other basses. String spacing at the bridge is about .75", maybe a bit less. The only flaw I see so far is that the nut string spacing is off on the treble strings, so it will be getting a new one. Current one is brass. It came pretty well set up, and I have to learn all about setting up a fretless for optimum playability.
I like the sounds a lot. Can't wait to string it with roundwounds. Am using it for jazz and blues so far, and some off-beat experimental things.
