Here, we've got 3 recently-completed LE bass projects, and one in-process:

An original Blackstar, completed, and another nearly ready for color, a Tuxedo restoration, and my own fretless Shadow clone, built from a donor '76 4001 MG/BT, with a black horseshoe added.

These were a nice break from all of the burst finishes I've been cranking out lately...

Even more so in person. I regret not asking Paul if he wouldn't mind me playing it on at least one song during the jams at this past SCARF.

Yes the fret-less with checkered binding does stand-out, all look very flash!
I wonder if you you were playing the bass with the white neck under heavy lighting ,,,, you might want to wear a pair of shades.

Those are some lovely basses. I bet the horseshoe sounds great with the fretless, too.
