Greenwood Designs fretless 'String Theory Prototype', England 2014 £400
This bass was bought from the makers when the workshop closed and is therefore unplayed. It's a beautifully made instrument with a 3 piece neck. And, I guess, it's the only one you're likely to see. As my customers will know, I like the odd-ball stuff. Have a look here for background info (the bass is pictured on the site)

Ibanez Bass Workshop BTB33 with Warwick flight case, Indonesia £600
In new condition no marks or wear. Lovely player. Very heavy duty flight case included. Ibanez said: The Ibanez BTB33 5-String Bass Guitar in Natural Flat is the first shorter scale addition to the brands Bass Workshop range of instruments that have been designed to bring concept-style basses to the masses. Due to its shorter scale length, the BTB33 is tuned from E-C, a feature that is unique within the Ibanez bass guitar range. The Ibanez BTB33 features Mahogany body wings that are topped with pieces of Ash, a combination that gives the bass a brilliant combination of stunning tones and looks that are sure to make it stand out from the crowd. The body wings are joined by a 33” scale 5-piece BTB5 Maple and Bubinga thru-neck that is topped by a 24-fret Rosewood fingerboard with Abalone dot inlays. The body of the BTB33 is fitted with a pair of highly versatile Bartolini BH1 soapbar-style pickups. These are accompanied by an Ibanez Custom Electronics active 3-band EQ wit mid-frequency selector switch and a master volume and pickup blend control. Rounding out the hardware selection of the Ibanez BTB33 is a Graph Tech BLACK TUSQ XL nut and a Mono-Rail V bridge, both of which help to improve tuning stability and sustain.
