    Joe, I don't think Rondo ships internationally, that's not gonna help.

    Go to your local shops and look for Dean basses, they have released a few iterations of their very respectable "Edge" basses in 6 string fretless over the years. I would say they're the first company you should look for.
     
  5. Thanks.
    My main instrument is a MM stingray5, but i would like to have a fretless.
    I already tried a Dean Edge 5 string fretless. Sounded very nice. They didn't have a 6 string, but i will ask.
    Thanks for your answer!

    hi man !! :)

    check out the shops for Cort Basses they have some nice stuff for the euros.
     
  7. i've played the dean edge 6, and it's a very nice bass. i would definitely recommend it if you want a cheap, but good, 6 stringer.
