    I am drooling over this thing. http://www.rondomusic.net/sjb62ctfretless.html

    I am going to start putting cash aside to buy one. Anyone own one of these?

    If the pickups aren't satisfactory, I have some lace sensors sitting in my guitar/bass parts bin. What should I expect with this thing?

  3. I have no idea what in the world the other guy is talking about,but I say go for it.I am a firm beleiver in the SX/Brice stuff from Rondo,my friend bought one and I thought the pickups were fairly decent.A pickup switch could help,but you could always put the originals in now,couldn't ya?

    I have the 5 string version in Lake Placid Blue. It's definitely worth the money. After I spent some time setting it up, it now gets a very pleasing, woody, fretless tone. :)

    Good luck and have fun! :bassist:

    I like the looks of that one myself.
     
  9. I agree! Anyone know why they insist on fretlines? Is it because they mostly intend for their basses to be sold to beginners?
     
  10. I am very interested in buying one... should I?

    I'm planning on getting one of those after my new amp and cab
     
  12. The real question... This versus the real deal.. how does it compare to a fender jazz?
     
  13. Well, I haven't actually played one, but from what I have heard from every single TBer I have seen talking about these basses, they are worth the money. I mean, they cost what, 1/8th of a Fender Jazz?
     
  14. Just a thought, and something I noticed...

    Istn't the thumb rest on the wrong side of the strings for a right handed bass? And if it isnt a right handed bass, it has weird configurations.
