A fretless bass. Just love the sound of the sliding into the note, as I do with slide on guitar. I was first introduced to it via the David Munyon album Code Name Jumper which is an excellent album. It has Warren Haynes of Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule as producer and guitarist. Munyon's covers album Big Shoes is excellent btw. I also like his vocals. Most of his albums have fretless bass to some degree but those two are the best in my view.

The Vintage fretless basses get good reviews and at $699 new would be worth a look. After all the other things on the GAS list. Sigh.

I never learn. I had an excellent 335 style and never bonded with it. Doesn't seem to stop me wanting this though. :roll:
I have major gas for that Eastman semi. Their high end guitars are just sublime.
Same here. Trying to resist!

Gassing to zhuzh my Princeton Reverb. Want to re-cover it and I'm thinking about a speaker swap too.

Gassing for a Mr Black Supermoon. Tentatively wondering if anyone's holding one before I look offshore?
