I've had two (long story). Both lovely. QC seems to be high - they felt like custom shop.

I liked the pickup switch (rather than a blend), but I didn't really need the J sound so I sold both of them. 

If I did need that sound, they'd be somewhere near the top of my list.

One of your vids is on the Bass Direct page for the s/h one...!

Ha ha.. so it is. It's not exactly a great advert for it...

Anyone have one of the Tony Franklin Fenders?  I have no idea who he is,  but his fretless PJ looks sweet.

Tony is awesome, he has a fretless tuition course on TrueFire that's great too.

The Tony Franklin fretless is my dream bass, I'm currently, though painfully slowly saving up for a black one.

I keep trying to find a cheaper alternative but nothing touches it.

Cheers man, always good to have a dream :)

I keep delving through the used ads in hope of a trade but they never come up.

It will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine :)

Quite fancied the fretted version but i currently have a PJ so not really worth having two of the same for me anyways.

I prefer my basses to be different and have different sounds to play with.

I'm a bit of a Roy Harper fan and they worked together on 'Jugula' with Jimmy Page.

Some of TF's gentler fretless work on RH's albums. 

Astonishing 80s hair, wonderful fretless playing and a love for perfectly ripe avocados!
