    I'm liking everything about this bass from the specs and the looks but I have never played one. What are your thoughts on it?
  2. I found a used one in a store and tried it out. First fretless I ever laid hands on. My intonation was probably (no, deffinately) terrible, but the unplugged sound was very good in my opinion. The B string didn't sound good, but I bet it would be a different story if I had plugged it in. As it was, I simply couldn't hear it as well as the other strings. I think it would be a nice bass to own, if I played fretless.
