    Ok, the active electronics on my Curbow gave out the other day, and the nut of the truss rod is stripped(wasn't me, came like that apparently). My Mom got hold of this information and is making me take it back to get a new bass. I will get $430 back(I know why now I got a good deal), and I am having trouble deciding what to get. I will add around $100 to that to give me a total of $530 to spend. Any suggestions, keep in mind I'm looking for fretless.
     
  2. Talk to the people at Carvin... for between 5 and 600 bucks you should be able to get a great fretless... made in America, nice fit and finish, and a great sound.

    Good luck!!

    I'd have to agree on the Carvin. You can't beat it for the money. Or for 625.00, you could get this.

    It's not. Look at the headstock...if it isn't fake, it's been well mangled.

    Bart pickups and 2TEK bridge, though.
     
  6. I agree on the carvin prices, good basses at cheap prices.


    BUT, you can can beautiful sounding curbows at around $200 - $400!

    fretted or fretless.

    Most curbows ive found around $300 sound better then some basses ive played costing $2000!

    I think its a question of: "Do you want another curbow"? (just make sure its not broke :D)

    :p its your choice
