Check the Rickenbacker Registry website at the link below, they've only made one fretless 8-string bass in nearly 4 decades of building 8s. Hamer has a made a handful, Sting from The Police has one, see Even Fender's custom shop has made one. See a pattern here? EXTREMELY RARE configuration! You'll most likely have to get one custom made.
: does anyone know of any 8-string fretless basses out there and not like the charlie hunter kind like the rickenbacker 4-string set-up you know what i mean?
: 8-strings on a 4-string neck set up. i would appreciate any help i can get. i know rick's have a 8-string 4003 but fretted, but i prefer fretless, so i hope to hear from someone before i have to have one custom made.
