Wow, I'm sorry to all of you popping up another fretless thread, the actual second of mine within a three-day period, my humblest apologies... ...But this thread has its merritt. My question to you all of is, what special or aquired skills does it take to make a fretless sound good? I keep hearing that you need to be "advanced" or "really good" at bass to play a fretless. I played a fretless 'Vette 'Wick at Guitar Center two days ago, played the same way I do a fretted bass, and it sounded great through the Backline 600 head and Behringer Bugera coned 15" cab I plugged into. (thinking of making that my future rig. any opinons? any?) Anxiously Awaiting Feedback, and Anxiously Awaiting a Fretless Bass, ~Ryan PS, any of you know of any fretless Spectors???
