    THANX!!! GUYS!!! for all of your great opinions...

    I have one more question.....which is...
    Will coating(polyester) on ebony fingerboard(fretless) increse buzzing on the neck? or bridge?
    'cause sustain is too good and attack is too strong?
    (too bright sound? I hate buzzing on the neck!!!!)

    do you recommend any good roundwound strings?
    some people say nickle plate(bright?) one is best...is that true?
     
  2. No. A good setup takes care of any buzzing issues.

    I use T-I nickel roundwounds on my fretless basses. I think they sound great.
