I'm having an "issue" at the moment. I have both fretted and fretless basses. I play the fretted most of the time because I can be 'less precise' when I play, and it allows me to look around more from the stage, or at whatever music may be in front of me. The fretted sounds good, but I do have that occational fret buzz that happens . Now then, there is my fretless. Sounds better, has 3 band EQ [as compared to 2 band on the fretted]. I can play the faster songs on it, but I really have to watch what I'm doing, and when I do, I seem to have a little more fun playing it. What is your input?
