Squier Jazz 70's Fretless Bass Guitar

Amazing. Simply amazing. The feeling of the neck, your fingers sliding across its narrow figure. The tone is enough to make any Jazz player/appreciator faint. The three control knobs consist of Neck pickup volume, Bridge pickup volume, and Treble/Tone. Once you find the right setting for yourself, the sound melts your face. The sunburst body, indeed only adds to the classic vibe and feel for the bass. There are no Cons that I see in this bass. Nice tone, fret-markers for beginners, aesthetically pleasing, and overall great price. $299's in my opinion is the best price for this instrument, a steal, if you will. If anyone has any conflict with this bass, comments, or cons, feel free to announce them.

I only spent a little time

I only spent a little time with one. I couldn't get the classic "mwah" sound even with rounds on it, but that would't keep me from purchasing one to get my fretless chops up to speed. They look good too.

Vintage Modified Fretless Jazz Bass

I had been wanting to try a fretless bass for sometime but just didn't want to throw a lot of money into a guitar not sure if I would like it. I've played fretted basses for 30+ years, 4 and 5 string. About 6 months ago I was at a local music shop and saw a Squier fretless hanging on the wall so I tried it out. I longer I played it the better I liked it. To make a long story short, I went back a week later and bought it and never looked back. This is an amazing bass, I love it. If anyone wants to give a fretless a try don't overlook this bass. You will be pleased.

BTW, brand new out the door with a gig bag $289.
