One-off fretless baritone guitar with Kramer headless alu neck

A fretless baritone / bass VI (depending on the strings you use - with a 78 cm scale, around 30 inches, you have the choice) is a challenging instrument, definitely one I'd love to try - though I'm really not sure I can get something good out of it! 

This one-off was built from a 1980s Kramer Duke short scale bass aluminium neck (with wooden inserts in the back and Ebonol fingerboard), modified for 6 strings, and has separate electronics and outputs for the different active and passive pickups.

    Heeyy, that's my bass!!! I tried to sell it 6 month before on ebay germany but stupid german bassists thought it's a 6-string bass and didn't understand anything. Nope, it's a Baritone fretless guitar convertible by few steps (change tuning unit, bridge and tailpiece on head) to a fretless 4-string bass. If someone want's to buy it contact me.
