Fretless Status
TNBassMan
Can anyone who owns a fretless Status bass comment on their fretless sound? How does it compare to more traditional wood body/neck basses? I currently have a Stealth headless 6-string fretted bass with Hotwire round wound strings and am considering ordering a fretless version. I once had a Gary Willis 5-string fretless; it had an amazing fretless sound. I am wondering if a Stealth fretless would be similar or at least have a good muaah sound (or whatever you want to call it).

I can do better than describe it.

Unfortunately for everyone else I own the best Status bass ever built. Pfft

Bassbus is laying down a nice fretless Status sound. Mmmm

I have a small set of Fretless Statii, and love them all.
The red one gets played 75% of the time, out of all my basses.
Strings are important, as I go with D'addario Chromes or Labella Deep Fats. No round wound strings necessary, in my book.

Fat Rich has a fretless Stealth 5-er, that is super sweet to play, and could potentially be my future build from Colchester.

Have successfully played jazz, fusion and pop music with all 3 of mine.
