  1. New clue what kind of bass that is, but it makes me wish I had fretless chops.

    Been posted almost weekly for the past 2-3 months. Very cool concept, assumption is that the frets "roll" and have a flat side that ends up even with the fretboard. Sounds nice to me, but fretjobs would be $$$$$. IIRC it's in the $3k range.

    I haven't seen that before, thats pretty sweet!!
  5. Oh man.. again.. it's starting to get old... real old too...

    It's a Mikey Guitar Fretted to Fretless (and back again) bass that can be viewed on their page...


    and be bought on eBay for around a nice cool $3k.. Which on the other hand, would get you two really nice fretted and fretless basses.

  6. still freakin cool though
  7. there really cool but not for tehre insane price tag.... you could buy a fretless bass and a fretted bass that are just as quality for the same price, if not under that price.
  8. Plus judging from the pics and descriptions, they're not really in the the same league as other boutique basses in that range. I bet they could do a lot more business if they sold premade necks, ala Warmoth. Either that or keep up with other basses in the 3k range, let alone $1500 basses.

    Well, of course you could, but you couldn't switch from fretted to fretless and back to fretted, could you?

    Not saying I have any interest in buying one, but you poeple are really missing the point. I can imagine being a session player, or something, and really being drawn to one bass that can be both fretted and fretless without changing any settings on the amp, or re-micing, or setting levels for a new bass, etc....Time is $$$.

    For playing in a bedroom, yeah--it's a bit much to spend. But, I don't think bedroom boy is their target market, do you?
