    I have one Black Tiger Fretless 5 for 5 years. It has always amazing sound. Sometimes, it works as contrabass. Also it has versatile tone. Right Hand on the fingerboard, neck pickup and bridge pickup, they are totally different.
     
  3. Do you mean to say it can sound like a double bass?

    I visited Ken's factory last April and the guy bringing us around showed my family an unlined Fretless 7 that was in the finishing room. Fantastic looking instrument, I'm sure it plays like a dream! I've been looking ever since for a pic of the finished product, but it still hasn't popped up.
