    Hmmm... last time I played one of those, it had some significant neck and fingerboard problems. Have they gotten any better over the years?

    I played one last summer for about 15 minutes. It played and sounded pretty good, but I personally think they are ugly. Flame away. ;)
  6. I think they are a very good looking bass. He does incredible things with his choice of woods. I've never played one but have always wanted to. They're rare however. If I had the dough (which I don't) and if I wanted a four string (which I don't) and if I could play fretless (which I can't) I'd bid right away!

    I missed it!!! That's the second used fretless Linc I missed in the last 6 months. I would trade my Ken Smith Design fretless and cash for it right now!!! Nonsqtr, I don't think that you will find problems with Linc's neck or fingerboard. They are exquisite. Mine is a bit heavy, though, and the lack of active electronics is different to deal with, but mine has an active Lane Poor system in it, and the new one being made will have Villex pickups with an RMC piezo bridge and RMC Hybrid buffer preamp. Linc is the bomb!!! Anyone have a fretless for trade/sale?
