It works well for me personally. I think I paid 599 for it.
that's a beauty right there, very nice. exactly what i'd like to own.



as for your little comment nathannn... i don't need to justify myself to you but i will just to illustrate how out of line you are...

i have 1 kid. a son. i raise him alone. as a single parent. i get not one cent of child support from his mother. no weekends off or trading custody. all me.

so fuck you. you don't know me. keep my son out of your keystrokes.

Like I said, I've been very happy with it. Fretmarkers are a must for me personally (I don't have the ear anymore for playing without a guide)

That's a beautiful bass,

I used to own a very nice second hand Ibanez in my student days... it's actually one of the few things I had to scrimp on food money for a few months to be able to afford.

Then my money actually ran out a few years later, and I decided to sell the thing. What a stupid decision :roll:

yeah me too.

glad you made it through Finn, even if the Ibanez didn't.

we all have our rough patches.

thank you nathannn. i'll speak no more of it.

@ eyeknow... i'm right there with you on the fret markers. i wouldn't dare be so bold as to think i could manage without them. it's the clean sound that makes me want to go without... much more forgiving than fret rattle. still, i know a good bass is a lot less prone to the buzzing. it's just hard to justify the expense. i started playing when i was about 14... that was over 20 years ago. if i'd have stayed at it consistently since then... i wouldn't need those markers but life has a way of changing and i have a way of getting sidetracked. i won't deny that.

i'm with Angstrom on the semiacoustic models though... those are sexy if a bass can be... i always liked that Hofner that Paul McCartney played. I fell in love the moment i first saw it.

I play with action so low there is some buzzing no matter what. I don't "practice" anymore so I'm not proficient but I use the technique training I once had. BTW, you can get a bass to get the action really low if you have the frets leveled. Any competent tech can do this.

What I like about the fretless is the freedom. Again, I'm not proficient but being able to "slide" to and from notes and use the sideways vibrato, it sounds pretty cool. I've got it in my hands now. This thread has made me want to play a little more. Thank you for that, it's easy to just have things put away in their case and be lazy about taking out for a spin :)

The Ibanez did make it, in a way. I sold it to the Cape Town Jazz Workshop, an awesome organization that provides hundreds of people with musical tuition every year.

So I know it is being played a lot more than it would have been if it had stayed with me, and is giving loads of people pleasure and instruction!


Yikes, this talk is making me want to play a bass again. 8)
