Very very good bass for its price

I had been watching this for a while, and when Artist had this on sale I pounced. I cannot see how you can get a better tone out of something this price, and I would probably expect to pay 2-3x for something of this quality. I cannot emphasise enough the quality, it is is a gig quality instrument.

My Fretless Bass Guitar

I am very pleased that I bought this guitar. The construction is strong and stylish and the woods used in its manufacturer are excellent. It took me a while to get used to how the four knobs work (I have only played acoustic instruments)) but a quick trip back to the shop sorted this out. I am sure that some documentation on the electrics would be a good idea. Meanwhile, I am enjoying learning to play this quality instrument which cost much less than I was expecting to pay. I'm very pleased with my Artist Fretless Bass.

Same attention to detail & friendly playability as the Vintage Hybrid but fretless. Great feel & balance with tone that only a fretless can give. For the price, it's an absolute steal. **Gerry from Port Kembla**
