Here's a vintage and in player-grade condition Gibson L9-S Ripper in a rare fretless incarnation. Fretless Rippers were built for only a few years starting in 1975, and only 898 were shipped. The fingerboard has fretlines to help you guide your way, and powerful Gibson humbucking bass pickups. The bass is in decent playing shape, with a twist in the neck that's resolved with high action, and cosmetic wear to the body. It still is very fun to play, and includes the original hardshell case.
