... would one of them be a fretless?
Definitely a fretless, that's mainly all I use ......
A Jazz and fretless Jazz, to be precise
No interest in fretless at this point. I play aggressive music.
If I had two basses I'd stick with my beloved Cirrus-5 and there would be a toss up between a Spector Euro and Modulus.
This is exactly what I have.
So do I. Actually, I'd categorize all my basslines as prog, even though I never play in a prog band.
Still, I find I play my fretless as much as my fretted. In fact, i'm playing only fretless on my gig tonight.
Definitely a fretless.
You really should try out a fretless at a band rehearsal if you haven't already, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Fretlesses sound great when played aggressively, the "mwha" sound is so beautifully subtle.
That said, I would definitely have to have a fretless if I could only own two basses. I'd get a 6 string fretted, and a 6 string hyperbass :O. I've seen a 5 string hyperbass before, so I'm sure Mr. Zon would take a request for a 6 string.
I play aggressive music on a fretless
yea my two Carvins would be my choice, and since one is fretless, yeah....
Have played in a very aggressive band with a fretless. It sits differently in the mix, if you want it to - more underneath than trying to poke through. "Mwah" isn't really my thing, but by bass is set up to sound less like Jaco and more like a dump truck. Of course, with the bridge pickup being stock, I can still get the "Jazz tone," but my bass is generally a lot different than your standard Jazz.
No fretless or ERB for me. I could be happy forever with one good P and one good J bass. Heck, I'm happy now with one good J.
Fretless is cool, but I've no need or desire to play it.
> fretless Bg.
> Double Bass.
Indeed I only have but two basses, and one of them is a fretless.
Nope. My fretless was my fourth, so I guess not. If I were forced down to two -- perish the thought -- it would be one of my fretted Fenders and my semi-hollow DiPinto.
Vintage fretted Precision and fretless Jazz would be my weapons of choice.
Two basses hmmmm
First would be a 1965 Fender jazz bass
Second would HAVE to be a fretless, infact my CB chamber 6 string would be a keeper. Great bass
We need pics of the CB!
I voted 'definitely a fretless' ... but really, with two basses, they'd both be fretless. I need my primary fretless (Roscoe LG3005), and a backup / travel bass (Steinberger Synapse fretless 5).
We'd have to get into three-bass territory before I'll even consider a fretted bass. Which is where I am: bass #3 == MusicMan SR5 ...
Fretted 5-string PJ and a Fretless 6 (lined).
