    Hello!

    Can anybody let me know where I could get a decent 5 string fretless bass from in the UK for around £500?

    Last month I put up at thread asking about 5 string fretless I found. This is it:

    Warwick RockBass Corvette $$ 5 string
    http://www.thomann.de/gb/warwick_rb_corvette5_fl_nbk_ofc.htm

    You guys said that it was good but too high priced for what it was. You mentioned I can get something just as good for a lower price but never stated another FL bass for me to look at, to compare to. :confused: Anyone able help me find a decent one? Links, shops in UK etc..

    Thanks

    Have you the chance to try out the ESP LTD B205SM fretless? I have the fretted version waiting for me as a xmas present when I get home, and I chose it based on the reviews and opinions I read here and around the net.

    Search for the model on here, at least a couple of TBers have the fretless version and seem to be happy.

    Here is the link:

    You could try gak.co.uk or guitarguitar. They usually have a decent selection.

    Look into the Cort Artisan. Looks like there's a 5 string version though I've only seen the 4 string one on sale in this country so far, costs around £500 and looks like it has serious potential. I also agree on those LTD B series - I have major GAS for the 4 string one at the moment.

    The Bass Gallery in London has a couple Fender (MIM probably) Jazz basses and a Squier fretless below £500. They should be decent quality, I think. Gak has a Vintage Icon fretless (Jaco clone) at £224, and thats a pretty good bass at a pretty low price :)
