Interesting ‘Tangente’ fretless multi scale

Recommended Posts

Looks nice. Interesting patterns.

(Although I hate it when builders put fingerboard fret markers in the middle of the “fret” on a fretless?)

Hmm, interesting looking instrument!

I like the woods, finish, the patterns.

I do NOT like the tone of yellow they chose for the decorations to go against that wood.

I REALLY don't like how marked the fretboard is. (But I know that's just me. I like my fretless boards to be CLEAN)

That's really smart - but yes; they've used one neck design for fretted and just replaced frets with lines for fretless - tsk, dots and markers in the middle.

I do like the concept though.

It reminds me of those nail and string art pictures you'd see in the 60s.

I like unlined too, but I think I will need the lines on a fanned fretless. 😀

Looks nice, except for the bridge that's angled just slightly too far backwards and doesn't follow the other lines on the bass. How annoying! Wouldn't have been necessary if they'd opted for an adjustable bridge. I really like the design though.

Whilst it's sadly true that I have absolutely no 'taste' when it comes to design, aesthetics et al, if I had to vote on an 'Ugliest Bass Of The Year' award, the one linked to in the OP would be a hot contender. I don't think that I could be classed as a 'purist', or especially conservative, but that thing, even just as a photo, looks bad; under home or (heaven forbid..!) stage lights, I just can't imagine anyone being serious or keeping a straight face. Best kept in its custom case, I say, lid firmly closed, maybe soundly sealed and padlocked, to prevent accidents. :|

I get the fret marker criticism, but to me that is only important on un unlined board. On this one, especially with the added inlays, it isn't a problem.

I like the look of the Eastwood Magnum advertised at the bottom of the linked page though, so thanks for that 👍

Ewww .... designed in the 70s with string and nails. Not for me stylistically.

It certainly stands out but I don't like it at all.

String art, that is exactly what I saw (well, it wasn't a ship, it was a butterfly, but the idea).
