      Comments about ESP LTD B-205SMFL Fretless 5-String Bass:

      After playing for a few years, i decided to get a fretless. Being a broke college student, i couldn't really spend too much. When i found this bass, i was skeptical. However, it was the only 5 string fretless with the lines painted on for this price. When i got it I, along with my musician friends and band teachers, was awe struck. It's absolutely stunning! the neck is solidly implanted into the body, it has a great bridge, and the string-through mechanism makes it very easy to change the strings. It came with pretty good strings too!

      I use it daily for everything from jazz to classic rock to punk. It's perfect for walking, and if you put the pickup selector to the middle selection it has a killer slap sound.

      This bass is a must-have for anyone who wants a 5 string fretless that doesn't want to blow $2,000.
