Hi people, I'm wondering if I'm starting to overthink things - situation is that after pretty much stopping playing 3-4 yrs ago at 60 or so that I'd still like to play and a friend would like to see if we can put something together again. Now at 64 I'd like to take a side road in the spirit of "now or never" and try to learn Fretless. After reading about the Sires M7 I started thinking of selling my Jazz Dlxe 5 to fund an M7 Lined Fretless and any leftover to save towards an Acoustic Bass. I mentioned the idea of a Fretless under his Slide Blues to my friend and he likes the idea but then I had an errant thought - what about a Fretted M7 and an Acoustic Fretless? A fair bit of the material likely to be on his Acoustic, might fit nicer. What do people who actually know something think : ) Maurie.
