    I have a bass, that Í`m not sure about what to do with.
    It is an fretless one 5 string Ibanez "Gary Willis" named as it is, beautiful bass and with great sound. Holy Black beauty, I call this sensation.

    Why? You healthy asked. True! But the things is I`m a soul man and times I find this beauty not fit in, so to speak.

    Any comments?

    If I get you correctly, you're not always happy with your bass. The solution: use the equalizer to change the sound or find a bass that you like.

    Greetings and welcome to Talk Bass, Wonderman!

    Its always a tough decision to sell off a bass in anticipation of a new one, especially if you're attached to its sound and its look.

    But at the same time, it is a tool and having the proper tool for the job is important. In my case, I tend to buy new tools for new jobs, but I can't get rid of the old ones. If you can manage, why not keep it and also get your self a bass that can do what you want.

    I'd suggest a nice Precision or Jazz would do you well.

    As a Norwegian soul man, do you know of a band called Napoleon Solo?

    They were on Blue Beat Records and put out very nice soul/ska. If you haven't, you should check them out.

    BTW, you do better in English than most of us would do in Norwegian.
