Here's something of a rare bird - a Time Guitars "Prime Time" Fretless Bass!

Famously the shop where Paul Languedoc started building guitars professionally, Time Guitars was founded in the early 70s and built acoustic and electric guitars and basses in Vermont until the late 1980s.   This particular example was built during Paul's tenure at Time sometime in 1985-86, and features some of his earliest inlay work.

We've elected to keep this bass in its original, unmodified Fretless configuration, but we would happily cut slots and fret the instrument (with PLEK) for an additional charge.
