“Saturn” 5-string Fretless

This fretless bass is a great example of team work! My idea for the design was almost clear when Mariyan Stanchev gave me some really efficient and helpful suggestions, especially concerning some of the measurements. For some unknown reason we both experienced a kind of cosmic inspiration, which was the reason for naming the project Saturn.
Many special thanks to Mariyan, who took part in the project and helped create its success. Thank you, brother! I would not have made it without you!
