The beautifully crafted Victor Bailey Fretless Jazz Bass® guitar incorporates the finest in design and electronics, as specified by Bailey himself. The sleek, exotic-looking body has koa and rosewood over mahogany; the maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard with 22 inlaid white fretline markers, Posiflex™ graphite neck support rods, abalone dot inlays, and highly detailed nut and fret work. Special Design Noiseless™ pickups add warmth and low end, complementing the hardwood body's natural clarity and brightness and producing an extremely dynamic tonal range. The circuitry has been tweaked at the input stage (pre-shape, boost and EQ settings) to enhance the unique sonic nature of the woods. Bass EQ is centered at 40Hz +/- 12dB with a 4dB per-octave slope; treble is centered at 8 kHz +/- 10dB with a 2dB per-octave slope (treble cut serves more as a passive control for warm organic tones). Mid-control is centered at 500Hz and +10dB and -15dB with a wide-band slope creating a distinctive voice. For maximum headroom, the circuit has an 18-volt power supply. Other features include gold-plated hardware, Fender®/Schaller® deluxe lightweight tuners, and a Bailey caricature graphic on the headstock.
