Fretless P'bass Question

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Jeff Rader, Aug 24, 2001.


  1. I found a used fretless MIA P'bass today that is several years old, in very good condition cosmetically, strings thru body, rosewood fretboard with a perfect neck. The strings are practically laying on the fretboard. The tone is very sweet. I'm usually not much of a P'bass fan, but this bass is excellent.

    I can get it for around $450. Is this a decent deal?

    Thanks!
    Jeff

    It sounds like a great deal!!!! I'm not too big of a P fan, but if I were looking for a fretless, I'd jump all over it.

    I like P bass, but not in fretless...
    I guess at that price you can always put a bridge pick up if you want different sound.
