    Just arrived. Tony Franklin Fretless Bass Lake Placid Blue

    So far fun to play. This being my first fretless I expected more intonation problems than I got. Great tone. Easy to play. Nice workmanship.

    Nice colour! Needs Tort tho....

    Also the beauty of fretless is that intonation is in your fingers :laugh:

    The true test of intonation is playing live.

    I blame @Dr. Cheese for giving me gas for one of these basses. I don’t even play fretless but I can’t deny how great these basses sound.

    These things just look great. Matching headstocks will be law when I'm king!

    That is a sweet bass. I love the Tony Franklins and the matching headstock looks great.

    Gorgeous! These look incredible. I’d probably get a nice aged white pearl pickguard for it but that’s just me.

    Rock it in good health!
