    At almost half the cost of new. Neck-through though.

    The Alain Caron Sig. has always impressed me. Its just in a way...imposing. Like something grand and mighty you know. I think i would be too excited to play it if i was given the chance to.

    So how do the Fbass and Zon compare head to head?

    I'm a huge fan of the Sonus Special Fretless and really can't imagine another rivaling it except for a Roscoe with the Diamondwood board.

    Haftooth, This is just a gastripping thread! Enjoy it.
    You know that fellow players like Gard, embellisher,
    myself and many others TB's members are converted
    happy fans and very fully satisfied with the Sonus Fretless basses, but like you, I'm sure that we all can admire another good fretless basses without necessarily do comparisons or rivalling them.
    Roscoe, Zon, Wal, K.Lawrence, Fbass are excellent different fretless basses, thanks to their qualities, playabilities, sound, builder's support and because they are not clones from each others. "Good Looking-Fun to Drive" like Sport Cars, that's because I like all of those basses... Ok, at least just one of them formula1, my ZSSF5. :)
     
  15. you can find the exact same here:
    www.station-music.de

    I have no relations with that shop!

    Hey man, I wasn't trying to stir the pot, but as I watched the pics come up, I starting gassing myself! The Fbass body design is my favorite of all basses, so when something intrigues me about them, I always am re-attracted because of the body design. I've played many fretless basses, and none have sounded as good as the Zon or the Roscoe, but if the Fbass is similar, I think I feel some gas coming if you know what I mean. In fact, if I was to get one, I already know the specs of the one I'd get. I'd get the Black/White Ceruse finish with a lined Birdseye Maple stabalized board. I don't think I've seen one come out that way, but I think it would be an unbelievable looking bass.

    Hmmm..... I think the only way I'll part with that one is if Alain Caron personally called me asking to trade basses. He'd have to throw in a few bass lessons too.

    I *have* given some thought to sending it back to George to have a piezo bridge installed. The separation anxiety might kill me though.

    If you wanted one exactly like mine, you'd have to track down Nick Tung and have him make an aluminum bridge saddle too.

    George is offering metal bridges on fretlesses now. I hate to lose the beautiful wood one, but for convenience and ease of setup ( ever so important on a fretless for that mwahh ) the adjustable saddles on a metal bridge are a lot easier to adjust that to sit there and sand the bone saddle, and if you sand too much, you have to shim it or start again. Now.. that big ebony bridge WITH adjustable saddles! that would be killer!
    Wyliee, bro - your fretless is intense. I love the "color scheme " -
    and we all know in basses and motorcycles, black is faster !
