"The Fretless Monster!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have been pondering this purchase for awhile, finally pulled the trigger; and it was a good choice! The bass incorporates the best features of the Jazz & P-bass, excellent fit and finish as well. Once I got the neck pick-up adjusted, it had a tone that really sang. The Jazz bridge has a great bite and bark, but this being my 1st fretless; I don't have anything to compare it to. I do have an active Jazz Bass & a G&L l1500,both are great; but this adds a different sound and playing style missing. It has really changed the way I approach the instrument. It takes a little getting used to, but once you do;it will open new avenues. Very pleased all around! The only thing I don't care for is the Vintage style bridge, I replaced it with a Hipshot A-style brass bridge. Improved tone and sustain. Oh and it is kinda pricey, but that's the norm these days unfortunately!!
