    I did a search on this and found nothing of real value. Does anybody here have one of these Brice 5-string fretless Jazz basses, or have you played one of these? What do you think?

    It looks good, and I have heard that Brice makes decent stuff, but it would be good to hear from someone who has actually played one.

    I own the fretted version and am very satisfied with it. Very good build quality. As good as or better than a MIM Fender for less money. I am wondering about the fretless version though. Does the neck have the clear coat like the fretted version? Probably sounds pretty bright.

    I'm afraid that with the maple neck (which I am sure is lacquered) and the ash body it will be a very bright fretless indeed!

    I own one, and they are great for the price I can get the Jaco tone or the deep blues Motown sound on mine.
