All right. The fretless I am looking at is something called a Stagg, an "offbrand" that only this place called Jennings music sells, at least that is the only place I have seen it. I personally compared it to a fretless jazz, and I don't know why, but I liked it better. Can anyone offer me advice on it? This would be my third/second bass, read the last post by me, depending on how much I get for my birthday which is this september 13. $250 is the top amount I want to spend, as that is how much this is. What I want to know is does it hold up well? Also, any other info on this bass would be nice, so give me the info if you have it. Shoot, I forgot the model. Why must I be so freaking stupid? It is a Stagg BC300FL-N, I believe.
