    Hi guys. Does anyone have any input on these basses? I have seen one locally for £250 which is around $400. Its a neck through model around 1982.
    I've always wanted a fretless bass as I love jeff aments sound on pearl jam songs.
    What do you guys think? Is it a good bass for the money?

    Oops I forgot to add it a Matsumoto factory fretless model also.
  3. Sounds fair- I'd try to haggle it down a bit, simply on principle- the principle reason being I am poor. :)
    Is it a factory-fretless or defret? That may affect value, giving you some bargaining leverage.

    Edit: Oops- just saw second post

    Thanks. Is it a good bass though?

    Incidentally I just noticed today aria are releasing a cliff burton black n gold I, it looks impressive!
  5. Aria has a pretty good reputation, as does most any Matsumoko bass. IME fretless tone is a very personal thing- my ideal f/less is very unlike my fretted bass(es)- play before you buy if possible, I say.
