    Recommend me a mid-priced 5 string fretless

    Considering they get nothing but praise, good call to at least try one. Mega specs for the cash.

    I’m going to give things some thought, something graphite would not be bad either

    That’s the one I was eyeing....

    True! String spacing indeed is tight, I think 16.5mm, which is much smaller than my preferred 19mm. Altough on a fretless it isn’t as big a deal. Must admit the ESP/Ltd Bunny Brunel also looks awesome, if price quality ratio is similar to my 8 string (octave strings) Ltd, it should be awesome....

    Also a good idea! Maruszcyks are very good value for money.

    Ha ha, see my comment re the Bunny Brunel ESP.... basically a slight revamp of the Carvin. Very nice!

    Thanks Tony, some very nice options..... indeed also the Status I owned a black (the cheaper one) Willis. Really light and very playable, but electronics were meh.... wonder if the 205 addresses the issues I had with the black one. Anyone ever try the ESP/LTD Bunny Brunel. On paper a lot to like but I know nobody that has ever tried one.
  8. I have gotten back into fretless big time and since I play both 4 and 5 string basses, it would be nice to add a 5 string fretless brother/sister to my Status Electro fretless 4. Any thoughts on mid-priced (say between 1000-1500 quid) 5 string fretless basses? Lines preferred, but not mandatory. Mwah clearly a must and I prefer magnetic pickup tone over piezo. Help me collate some “potentials” please dear BC. Thanks.
  9. I must admit I am finding it hard not to crack a joke here.

    Solo artists who outshone their original band

    Since most artists do not land a record deal 1st try AND generally hone their skills in bands at school/uni etc. would it not be fair to say that any artist that becomes known and appreciated for their work has outshone the original band?

    Fretless bass in metal

    Bingo, I think he now has a 7 string fretless Thumb.

    Fretless bass in metal

    I have to disagree my friend. Tony F is most certainly the godfather of fretless in rock. But he is to metal what Sabbath is to Hard Rock. The bass players above are pretty much 100% fretless players, and have brought fretless into metal.

    You will know Jeroen Paul Thesseling I imagine from his work with Obscura, check out his bass work for Pestilence. For my taste fretless sounds great in any style, certainly metal too.

    They are rare but Les Paul basses come in 5s FYI
