This is my first post around here... I'm looking for a fretless, piezo pickup type bass to use mainly in a Bluegrass band, and for rootsy studio work around Nashville. I have very little true upright experience, though I can play a lined 34" scale fretless with no problems. I best stick with a horizontal instrument, close to the scale length of a P-bass. I have tried a Godin A4 and was quite impressed. It would surely do the doghouse thing much better than my old P bass. The 1/4" long cheater lines really do the trick. However are the much more expensive Rob Allen MB2 basses worth the extra cash over the Godins? Any suggestions from folks that have played these?
