I think I have finally found a fretless bass that I think I will keep. I have been playing this bass at a local store since August. I started to buy it several times, only to back out. I suspect I know this bass better than most other basses I have bought because I played it so much. Now that I have it at home, I cannot believe how good my intonation is! I have been able to play along with my iTunes with very few flubs even though I have been practicing some fairly tricky stuff like Stevie Wonder and Bernard Edwards basslines to get feel for this bass. I took it to rehearsal today, and I used it the entire practice. I had few flubs, but I am certain I can use it for a service. Since a snow and ice storm is coming, I probably won't be able to play it at church tomorrow, but once I get it there, I think it will work out just fine. This bass has great resonance, and sounds wonderful unplugged. It is strung with heavy gauge flat wounds, and I love the tone.
