Le Fay 32? Fretless Singer 4 Bass closeup

Le Fay has introduced a new fretless version of their Singer model with a 32-inch scale and 19mm string spacing. Among the new features is the inclusion of the company’s new single-coil pickups, which have angular thumb rests and a three-point screw arrangement to prevent wobbling. Two pickups are under the bridge pickup cover while the neck cover houses one.

Weighing in at approximately nine pounds, the bass is built with a mahogany body and maple top matched with a maple neck and a two-octave range ebony fingerboard that sports stylish red lines for position markers. The hardware includes Gotoh tuners and a Le Fay bridge. Electronics on the bass can be switched between active or passive via the volume knob. The controls are configured with a 6-position pickup selector, active bass and treble boosts, and a tone control that works in both active and passive modes.

The Le Fay Singer 4 32? Fretless bass is expected to have a price of €3,600 (approx. $4,517 USD). For more info, check out the Le Fay website.

  1. Do want, can’t afford.

  2. Beautiful bass, and I bet it must have an amazing sound. Too bad the price is far from being amazing too………

    • Talk all you want about ” ridiculous ” prices , but if you have not played the bass in question , you do not have a valid opinion about that bass’ worth. Maybe you can say with 100% certainty you would never pay that much for a bass, or you cannot afford such a bass ( no shame in that ) , but you really ought to play a bass before jumping to non-informed opinions. And, yes, you can have a gas and make great music with a $150 bass.

    • I’m with you, Dan. I think a public discussion on the prices of instruments is in order soon.

    • Definitely with dan on this. I paid as much for my first bass as my first car, and am paying more for a new custom than the last car i bought. Great bass builders are putting a whole lot of work into your instrument and that costs time which equals money.

  3. I hope its tone matches its beauty.

  4. 4500 is a bit steep. nice looking though. It’s getting old seeing all of these beautiful bass guitars that are rediculously over priced. Are these luthiers/mfgs only trying to sell one or two guitars to some rich collectors that more than likely can’t even play bass?

    • imo, this amount of money veers far into collector’s territory, and the upgrade in performance and sound over say, a $1000 bass would not be negligible. unless you have stacks of money laying around and nothing to use it on. I’ve always played inexpensive instruments, and what’s more important to me is what kind of amp you are playing through and what kind of strings you are using, etc. I suppose what you are paying for is of course a unique instrument that other people do not have, basically like buying an exotic car.
