I posted a while ago about the Robelli fretless basses at sCam cAsh having the dots at the in-between position as though the basses had frets. Well, they have reissued that model (the black one with the soapbar PU's, model SSBFL) with the dots AT the fret positions! And, there's a new model USB590 with PJ pickups (the one I saw was candy apple red) that also has the dots at the fret positions! Cool to see these guys responding to market pressure. I have to insist that the in-between position is WORSE than no dots at all on a fretless. I can now recommend these basses without reservation as a reasonable choice for a first-time fretless player who wants to see if he can hack it without blowing the bank. I will say that the electronics aren't all that great, kinda thin-sounding. But, hey, you don't buy a fretless for massive bottom, so I think they are OK for the bucks -- the older model with soapbar PU's is $250, and the PJ one is only $189!
