Artisan B4FL Fretless

  1. I've played fretted bass for 10 years. Now I'd buy a fretless bass.
    What do you think about the Artisan B4FL Fretless with :
    Swamp ash body
    Wenge neck
    Bartolini MK1 pickups & MK1 EQ

    It's a good fretless ?

  2. the fretted version is a good quality bass, never tried the fretless though

    i guess they stopped making the 5 string fretless, or else i'd have one. wouldn't be that hard to defret...

    anyways, they're very nice basses. i mean...bart electronics, ash body, and wenge neck for the price?!

    IMHO, the best value in fretlesses under $500. Only the MTD Kingston fretless comes close.

    i loved the 4 string fretless i almost bought.

    MAN, that thing was ALMOST as easy to play as my zon.

    a real joy!!!!

    pickup tones were kinda odd though.
