    Been playing for 6 months. I'm hopelessly hooked. I love my little Yahama BBN4, but I just got my first fretless. I played a Curbow fretless in GC the other day, as well as a Warwick Corvette 4 fretless, and decided to go with the cheaper Cort Curbow/Bart p-up I found on ebay. ooooh, I can't wait for it to get here.
  2. Congratulations. Fretless is lots of fun!

    oooh yeah, got the bass today! Man am I pumped. I've played for about three hours today (ignoring all sorts of statistical thermodynamics work due at 8 tomorrow...oh well). My intonation gets better by the minute. I still would like some advice on strings...I started another thread for it, but might as well ask here - looking for a bright flatwound (well, brighter may be a better term)- GHS Brite flats? TI JAzz flats? D'addario Chromes? I am leaning towards the GHS set, because they are actually ground rounds, but never having heard any of them, it's kind of hard to choose. I'm also not a fan of higher tension strings, so from what I hear, that kind of eliminates the Chromes. Any help?
