Ok, So I made the decision to buy another Musicman after owning mine since 78'. Hmmm what should I buy? Ahhh!!! a fretless five String with vintage finish and piezo pickup in bridge. $1600 ? oh well I'll own it forever. What's this fretless bass doesn't sound as good as a fretted bass for R&B music and me in a R&B band? OK I'm a fool. But would any one out there like to trade their 5 sting fretted neck in at least good condition for a brand new fretless one. I ve searched and found graphites for $450 (moses thru dealer). So what do ya think?
