Here it is
Fender Rumble 15
It's like a baby Amp
Can actually handle low B string
Appears to sound best with passive fretless with a touch of the Diamond Compressor.

Been spending virtually all my time playing using Fretless
It's a funny instrument but when I have "good hands" it's a nice thing

Fender Jazz - Diamond Comp - Sadowsky Preamp - very old flatwounds

Virtually no mwah more mellow fundamental thump. Notes blossom

Anyway anyone here play fretless?

Fair call, I'm sure they'd do a custom order, or there's always the Jaco option...
