Fretlines good.

Comments about Epiphone Zenith Fretless Acoustic-Electric Bass:

This is for the guy who wrote the last review. I don't own this particular bass, but owned lined and unlined fretlesses. I used to have an ego and didn't think I needed them. Truth is I was out off key more often then I should have been. I'm good too. JACO used the lines. In a video interview he said he NEEDED THEM or he's be off key on big jumps. Hell he made it himself by pulling them out with a butter knife. It's very tricky given the size scale and position to be very accurate. Bottom line park the ego and look at the lines if you need to. Everyone but your ego will thank you, unless your better than Jaco that is....

I expected better...

Comments about Epiphone Zenith Fretless Acoustic-Electric Bass:

The picture I'd seen of this bass didn't show fretlines and I thought I'd give it a try. I have played professionally for almost 45 years and do a lot of lead and harmony vocals-believe me, I know my way around a bass. Sadly, it has fretlines, which are an insult to any competant bassist.(As if Jaco P. needed fretlines on his Fender.) Then, when I held it, it was as heavy as a Warwick or Gibson solid body. Not what I'd expected from an acoustic bass. Wearing this thing for a 4-set gig would take a toll on your back, neck and shoulders. I'll try out the new Warwick Alien or the Breedlove Atlas Solo. I walked away from this one and didn't think twice about it. Maybe I'll find an old Epiphone El Capitan fretless, from when Epiphone had a real customizing department.
