8 string fretless

  1. Has anyone heard of/seen/played an 8 string fretless? i'm talking about the 4 doubled not the 8 string monster john turner has. What did it sound like?

    Thsough I haven't touched a fretless one, IMO, the only fretless 8 you should consider is the Zon 8. There is one pictured on the website with a mango top and a Special pickup configuration. Not only is the Zon 8 a great 8, they are known for their fretless basses. Definately an interesting isntrument.

    Mark Egan plays a lot of fretless 8 string. It might be worth it for you to go check out some of his music to hear it.
