    I pulled my Yamaha RBX260F (fretless) out of it's case for the 1st time in,ahem,a few months tonight,and I'm having a ball slidin' around and noodling with my drum machine.Alder body,Rosewood board on Maple neck,24 "frets",one P style pickup,$199 brand new in April '99,although I think they're a little more these days,but still worth it!

    It's a bit more today, yes, but still damn cheap. If it only had a J pickup, it would be my first fretless in no time at all. Too bad they don't make fretless versions of RBX360/460... (or have I missed those?)

    Right now I'm saving my money for a higher-end fretless. I just wonder how long I can keep saving and not buying...

    GAS GAS GAS GAS! :D

    I coulda' swore I saw a black, fretless with a P and J at my local Mars (RBX360F ?).
    I have a RBX260F and love it (shhh! [​IMG] don't tell my Rob Allen )
    Talk about light! It's a great "test bed" too.
    I put on a Bada** II and boy does it sing!
    OK, so a Bada** is like puttin' a supercharger on a Vespa scooter :D .
    There is the BBN4F (fretless). It used to have two J-type pups.
    The newer models have two EMG-HZ type soapbars. Oh well. Still real cheap.
     
  4. I have a fretted rbx260, its the most expensive bass I own! It is inexpensive but it sounds great, when I had the flatwounds on it it had an amazine growl detuned! Man what a rush when you can get a tone like that from a $200 bass! Wish it was fretless!
