Hey, I own a '77 Fretless Jazzbass, which I got from a friend for free! When I met with it, it was in poor shape, with no chrome canopies, a big shiny dog sticker on the pickguard, and was sorely in need of moisture on the solid ebony fingerboard. The finish was destroyed and the headstock decal was half missing. A total mess. I spent 6 months and $700 US on repairs and parts; 12 hours a day micro-meshing the pickguard to remove all the scratches, and tracking down the canopies and decals from Sweden. Now, it looks like this:
It looks 100% better, and plays like a champ. It is undoubtedly my finest piece. The serial number is: 53 988037.
Such admirable dedication of a very fine
and very well respected model.
....and another Fretless Scanbass -
Originally a partner for a Futurama / Coronado
Interesting indeed - just glad I got to play it back end of
last year before it went 'home again'
Believe me - not all Scanbass / Jazzbass models were fretless!
Anyone with Hagstrom

|There's nothing like a REAL original Swedish made Hagstrom (and there are loads around), but if it 'floats your boat', or you can't find an original then who are we to say?|
