    I've been considering buying a fretless bass, but don't want to invest an arm and a leg in case I don't like fretless. Came across this SX brand on E-Bay. They are cheap enough, but has anyone here actually played them? Are they worth 120 bucks? Thanx.

    Essex are very popular here. Look for the Essex megathread in this forum. yes they are worth the money.

    Yes, go for it.

    I have a fretless SX with an upgraded bridge and pups, and I'm actually playing it more than my American Fender. :smug:
  5. I have an SX Fretless Jazz, and I'm very pleased with it. Well worth the money.

    I'm upgrading the bridge ATM just for fun ;)

    I also upgraded the pups, but the stock ones really are quite reasonable.
