Having just acquired a fretted 5 from Alan (AC Guitars) I decided that I just had to get a fretless 5.
The Shuker has been a revelation - and although it’s in hospital at the moment (Urk!) I’ve realised two things. I love playing fretless, and 5 strings really do make a difference (for me anyway).
The fretted 5 will get a thorough outing next weekend at the Quad jam session - and will probably become the main bass I use with my originals band. I’ve already adapted the bass lines for a 5 with some low B action sprinkled throughout.
But it just seemed that the obvious thing would be to get a fretless 5. I’ve never had a custom made done before, so contacted Alan and started looking at the options for a fretless 5... we have agreed a spec.. and the quote is coming over tonight for deposit payment...
Super excited! I’ll share the build pics I get from Alan here and obviously my thoughts on my first custom build..
