i almost enough money from my job to get a new bass, and i dont want to just get an ordinary bass, so i choose a fretless. but i needed a 6 string version and this was all that came up

http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/MTD-Kingston-KZ-6String-Fretless-Bass?sku=513946

i was just wondering if this brand is trustable because i don't see anybody buying them or anything. i really like this bass and i love the burled maple. any help or experiences ?

If you're spending $1,400 wouldn't you want to play it?

It looks like a nice bass. And from the description sounds like one too. However... why are you getting a fretless 6 string?!

Unless you're a die hard fan of Les Claypool and you wanna be just like him, and if you are, that's nothing bad, but I doubt you'll need a fretless 6. Other than some Primus songs, no one really uses fretless sixers, and it's usually pretty difficult to incorportate them into songwriting.

Robertino Pagliari also does some amazing things with a fretless 6. And to answer your question MTD is a great brand, real high quality

    The sentence means "Musicman is the only cure for gas" Heilmittel means to remedy/cure

      yea i knew people would mention me copying less, but its not really that, its just that i'm pretty dedicated to sixers and a fretless wouldnt get me un-used to them if you understand what i mean

      Warwick makes a bunch of fretless 6-strings. They costs alot. But there are other ones out there.

      Edit: Come to think of it Yamaha might have a fretless 6-er in the TRB series.

      Why NOT a 6-string fretless? It's not like it limits you or anything. I have one and I don't regret it at all. However, it doesn't look nearly as sexy as that.

      I always say that you should try before you buy. In the case of spending nearly 1.5 grand, I feel it's even more important. Have you played it? If you haven't, how do you know you like it? If you're spending so much money on a bass, you should be damn sure you like the feel and the tone, and that's something that someone can't really help you decide with.

      this. when I first started playing, I wanted an Attitude Bass, the Billy Sheehan thing.

      even if I can play that neck, it was just too big. and it didn't sound as nice as a certain nearby Ibanez.
      that I will never get.

      I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
