    Headstock says "Jazz", but the missing knob says "Punk"

    HNBD! I have a lot of fun with my fretless J bass & I'm sure you'll do the same-Enjoy!
    I've tweaked mine over the years to my liking & have it blacked out with a volume blender & no load tone but have stuck with the tape wounds that I do like on it.

    That’s cool, I always wanted to try a fretless Bass. How are those strings? Do they feel nice and smooth? Looks good :)

    The set screw on the knob was stripped. It popped off while removing the cellophane and just keeps spinning in the slot.
