hey everyone~ i need some help~!! i have played acoustic guitar about two years now and i got a chance to learn bass guitar in my church. since the bass player had to play keyboard, im playing bass for our sunday service. i have used the bass player's bass and now i want to buy my own. i have played bass for about three month now and i got little feel to doesn't sound so wrong in the band. i was looking to buy a steinberger from musicyco.com because i heard it's not that heavy and the balance is good. i also liked the fact that i get a bass that looks very different than what i've seen. but im not sure how the sound, feel, or anything about the steinberger cuz i only looked at it through the web. also i visited guitar center a few times and saw a person playing fretless bass. it seemed pretty fun except the fact i have to get right place without frets' help. i don't think it's very hard to learn the fretless. i believe i can do anything~ anyway, that's only my thought without any experience. i've looked up some sites but i figured asking you would be the best. so what do you guys thinking about steinberger as my first bass? if yes, what model? xp or xt. if no, what else? what do you think about fretless?
