Just bought a '00 fretless MM Stingray in honey burst, white PG from a local TB'er (thanks that one guy). The thing was immaculate. However, I do have one problem with it: I can't get my hands off it. (that Roland amp atop my Hartke rig is just a keyboard amp, has nothing to do with my bass rig. My keyboard/MIDI studio is behind the amps). The thing has TI jazz flats strung on it. Feels nice, perfect tension. String gauge is a little light for me (and this coming from a guy who plays lighter gauge roundwounds on his fretted Stingray5). The seller also threw in a set of Rotosound flats, haven't tried those yet. Maybe I'll get used to these ultre light strings. Played around with the action/neck and found some "Mwah" sweetspots round mid-neck. I also found out I can trigger a more pronounced "mwhah" by pulling back the neck with my fretting hand. I've never played a more expressive instrument in my life. Other fretless joys: - Slapping this freltess Stingray sounds like slapping a P-bass! - Brought out my boss CE-3 chorus box that's been collecting dust...instant Pino! - Plugged the thing through an envelope fiter for that solid muffled dub tone. MASSIVE BOOM! - Love plucking the strings with my thumb at the base of the neck for that upright sound. I tell ya, playing fretted basses feels REAL weird after slidin' around on a fretless with flats. Any other fretless Stingray owners out there? Any tips/suggestions/comments for a new owner?
