I've owned a Rossli four string fretless bass for maybe 30years or so. Lovely instrument, if I provide photographs can you tell more about it please?

4 string fretless Rossli bass

Still got it, think I'll get areply this time? I just want some information about it because no one has ever heard of it.



This brand first came to my attention when I saw (& bid on) a Rossli strat-style electric on eBay. All I could find out was this: the Rossli Guitar Company was an English guitar brand operating in Kent, producing small numbers of instruments. Rossli has been associated at various times with luthiers Robin Day and Andy Crockett. Limited information suggests Rossli guitars were being made in the early 1980s, so the brand predates this period.
