Another fretless that sings and makes you cry. What Vadim’s secret is, I do not know. This bass sports a gorgeous Burled Walnut top with a Paduk body.
The neck is a 35″ scale, 9 piece affair, primarily Paduk with a Wenge center piece flanked by 2 Walnut pieces with 4 Maple runners separating these pieces.
The Macassar Ebony fretboard is fine-lined with Maple veneers. First rule “intonation”; the lines really help and serve the music.
The pickups are custom made by Vadim, the bass is passive, and there are 2 volume and a master tone control.
The volumes pull up to give single coil operation.
