Vintage Ampeg Fretless Scroll Bass

Vintage Ampeg Fretless Scroll Bass

Extremely rare 1968-69 Ampeg Fretless AMUB-1 Scroll Bass. This bass had a new truss rod and the finger board replaced approx. 4 years ago by Bruce Johnson  in Burbank Ca. Bruce is the only person authorized by Ampeg to do actual reproductions of these guitars. The neck is dead on perfect and plays incredible. Finding one of these basses, especially with the original big “a” chrome bridge cover plate, is very rare. This bass plays excellent and has incredible tone unlike anything you’ve ever heard. You may occasionally find an AEB-1 bass on ebay but the AMUB-1’s were a much better built bass with a vast improvement on the pickup system.  For more information on these basses go to  http://www.xstrange.com/amb1.html   Total production on the AMUB-1 was approx. 200 and the fretless basses were the lowest production of these.
