I got the 5 strings fretless but I have to say that When I open the box I was fascinated about this beautiful bass but, when I started to play I realized that the B,  the E and the A strings buzzing against the fretboard well it should not happen with a bass with this budget anyway, I raised the the screws from the bridge all the way up but the buzzing still there‍♂️ I checked online to see what the hell can I do to solve the problem and at the end I unscrewed the neck a “little” after that seems ok, just the bridge B string screws is still all the way up and looks not well. End of the story, I’m not very happy with it , I expected a real solid and well settled up bass at this price, but I received something that I had to figure it out to let it sound discreetly.

I always wanted to try fretless and after decades of playing fretted I took the plunge.I love this bass it is so smooth and the neck is like butta'.It really is hard to believe this bass is a $500 one.The quality screams.My only regret is waiting till turning 64 to do it.
