    20th Anniversary SR5 fretless production numbers?

    Hi all,

    I have a 20th anni SR5 H, and very lovely it is too, and I was wondering if a fretless version was ever released as I've never even seen a picture of one.

    SR4 fretlesses are rare enough, but how many SR5s were released fretless?

    Hi WinterMute welcome to the forum.
    Unfortunately EB usually don't release production numbers of basses.

    With the 20th Anniversary SR5 it was available as a fretless to order, so they had to be ordered they just were not made with out ordering them. I do know of 1 because I was lucky enough to order one at the time - I was going through a Jaco, Pino, wearing a beret & having a ponytail phase (only joking about the ponytail)

    Here is a picture of mine

    Now that is a thing of beauty....

    So they are going to be even rarer than I expected then...

    Don't suppose you still have it and would be willing to part with it?

    I guess I may have to find another fretted and have it defretted.

    Hi Wintermute,
    Yeah I still have it and actually still use it so unfortunately I cant part with it at the moment.
    But If I ever do I will keep you in mind.

    The Fretted version do come up once in a while on Reverb so good luck with the search.

    Maybe contact Customer Service to see if they will tell you how many fretless basses were made ( I would like to know) - it is a long shot and like I said EB doesn't give out sales info but who knows its worth a shot

    Cheers

    Took me 15 years to get hold of the one I have now, but not because they weren't around, I simply couldn't afford them...!

    I have a 5 string stealth Bongo that may have to make way for another 20th Anni, they are just the perfect bass for me.

    Thanks.
