  1. Man...this tune is gorgeous...My question is the following: is Stu Playing a fretless? If so, is it a warwick?

    I don't think it's a fretless.

    I think someone said it was a fretless Alembic. But I don't know. Sure sounds like it, though.

    nah, not a fretless. dig the opening line, though! great composition. i play that thing all the time (never once captured Stu's feel, though) for warm-ups.

    Are you guys SURE that's not a fretless? 'Cause when I play that song, it sounds a LOT more like original coming out of my fretless than it does my fretted bass. Listen to the gliss that leads up to the muted triplet/descending gliss. Sounds like a fretless to ME, but I can certainly always be wrong.
     
  6. It's not a fretless...or at least that's what he said in an interview for some magazine. Great tune!! :)
