Despite my repeated failure at fretless, I decided to try again. Came across this used one in GC. Looked good, and sounded great. Powerful but not noisy pickups. It has the slightly raised fret lines that these normally have, but it plays fine. I spotted what looked like a newb employee and talked him down considerably on the price. I still stink at fretless, but man it sounds so good. Hopefully I'll be motivated enough this time around to keep with it. The harmonics really sing on this one. My goal for the weekend is to learn portrait of Tracy. Some of it at least.
