Ack...brutal fretless GAS attack!!!

Recommended Posts

I've never owned a fretless bass and never really thought I wanted one...until today, that is!

 

While waiting for my wife to get some shopping done, I strolled into a local music store and plugged in what looked like the most interesting bass on the wall - a fretless Ernie Ball MM Sterling with the piezo option. It was used and showed some minor fingerboard wear where the strings rubbed, but seemed to be in excellent shape.

 

When I plugged it in it sounded sooo good even through the crappy amp they had set up. MWAH! :love:

 

They wanted $799 for it w/OHSC. Bass Northwest shows a list price of $2065.00, so this looks like a very reasonable price, no?

 

Quick, somebody talk me out of it or something.

I've got one, but without the piezo. It is just wonderful. Like you, the first time I played one I said, "This is it!" $799 is a good price for a used one.

 

Sorry...you won't find me talking you out of it. :D Sounds like a great move!

It's worth the price and you probably won't need to upgrade as it has everything you could want in a fretless. See if you can put it on layaway... :D

Nahhhh. You don't want to lay out that kind of bread. Think of all the nice things you could do for others with that money.

 

BTW - where is this store? :P

I have nothing nice to say so . . .

Matt,

 

lol! If you're actually interested, let me know and I'll give you the secret location. ;)

 

Danzilla,

 

Bah humbug! :D

 

I'll be in Maryland for the holidays. Columbia to be exact (where I spent many years.) Think we'll get snow for Christmas?

 

Eddie,

 

Nope, I think I'm going to grit my teeth and pass. As tempted as I am, I'd have to sell one of my other basses and I just don't think the fretless would see as much use as my backup P.

 

TBM,

 

It's a four.
