Does any brand make any of these at an affordable price (around 400)???
Sure! Fender MIM...
nope, it has fret lines.
Cort Artisan has no fretlines, and the 4 string version can be had under $400.
If you're feeling adventurous, order a Carvin bolt-on bass kit and specify you want it w/o the fret lines. Should be under $400 and will be a fine bass when assembled.
I played a Carlo Robelli at Sam Ash that was surprisingly nice. For $250 new. It had no markings, even side dots. IMO that's going a little too far in the other direction
Cort Curbow Fretless.
I have one, plays great, sounds very good, and has no lines.
Lines IMHO are not to be had on a Fretless, they sometimes make the fretboard a little uneven.
The Cort Curbow sports an Ebonol Fingerboard wich wont wear.
ha Richard Lindsey on this board whassup rlindsey it's deicidalsaint from the Carvin boards.
a mim fender with black paint on the fretboard.
Luis, I've heard this said before, and I don't get it.
I own a Zon with lines, and I have played several basses with lines, and have never experienced unevenness on a lined fretless.
That depends on the lines..
Most of them are inlaid.
Wood inlays tend to expand due to moisture and enviroment, so they could raise a little bit relative to the fretboard.
I tried a Modulus Quantum 4 with fretlines and when I played over the lines I could feel a small rattle over it and then you can hear some "freline noise"
This happens when you use low action on a fretless to get lots of mwha.
It may not be present at first, and could be developed by time, because wood never stops moving.
Now with an unlined fretboard , specially a Phenolic fretboard something like that will never happen.
My board is phenowood and has redwood lines.
I have not had this happen in the several months that I have had the bass.
Whassup yourself, d? Glad you made it over here. This is a pretty cool place. I used to go to the Harmony Central Bass and Guitar Forums, but I can't stand that place anymore. This is better IMO.
