Fret Markers

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by PinkTelephone, May 2, 2004.


  1. Does Anyone know a nice bass for 700 or less with cool fret markers. i have 5 basses and they all have dot markers, i'm tired of themand want a change. I play mostly hardcore music in a band but i play anything when by myself, so if anyone has any recomendations on a bass with badass fret makers for 700 or less please let me and thanks :confused: :cool:

    check on a used geddy lee signature jazz bass. Block inlays, and a bound neck. Classic rocking bass.

    Dont buy a bass just for its fret markers.
     
  4. Agree with that.....

    But if that's what they want to do......

    If I remember correctly the "red markers" they describe are chili peppers, you may want to verify before you buy it.

    And here is a link to one on closeout @ 699 for black & 399 for green finish.

    Wow, that's a first. Normally people own multiple basses for more tones, not for their looks. To each their own I guess.

    If all you're after is a different kind of fret marker, why not go to fretware.com, get self adhesive shell markers in block style or one of your own design, then take one of your five basses or get one you want and add the fretware markers to it? You'd invest very little and would accomplish what you're after.

    Get a Warwick, they sound great, look great, and you can get cool Yin-Yang inlays.

    Still, it's probably best to choose a bass that sounds and plays great...

    :rolleyes:
