This bass is absolutly incredible for the price and can not be beat.

The only Issue I had with mine was that the dots that go down the neck on the top of the bass were a little off and if you are a beginner this can be kind of tricky to fix. I had to paint over the dots and then paint my owns dots in the propper places. A little annoying, but well worth it.

I also recommend putting some round wound strings on it. Other then that you should be good to go. I have used this baby in practices all the way up to big shows so its a very good instrument for the price.

If you're looking for utility and not flash, and you're willing and able to do a little work for it, this is the guitar for you. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
The intended features are pretty standard and as advertised. Came with roundwound strings, which seems odd for a fretless.
This guitar needed work to play well and was sold as such, but it was through no accident of Musician's Friend. The mounting bases for both the nut and neck were not true, tuners were loose, truss rod frozen, the electronics were not shielded, and the string holes in the bridge were not large enough to fit most bass strings through! All these are fairly easy and cheap to fix. The basic wood and finish of the guitar was sound, and the pickups and electronics all work fine.
Quality may be fair to middle, but price is very very low!

Comments about Rogue LX200BF Fretless Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

This is my third bass from MF and it is nice! Hats off to MF as they were extremely helpful and turnaround was quick. This bass is great for the price, especially for someone venturing out into fretless land. This bass arrived with no visible flaws. The electronics seem to be good quality. The neck is true. The blue color is really pleasing to look at. A great bass from a great provider (MF). Thanks!

Comments about Rogue LX200BF Fretless Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

Very sharp looking guitar. This guitar was easy to handle and is not heavy. The sound is good after everything is set up and adjusted. The tuning gear for the A string had a lot of play in it but did hold the string in tune; not sure if it will eventually fail with use.
This is my first fretless and it really shows my fingering imperfections and is helping me improve my fingering accuracy. Overall, this is a good product.

        Comments about Rogue LX200BF Fretless Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

        I understand that this is a cheap bass, but when they say cheap they mean CHEAP. The paint job was crummy, tuning knobs were not very awesome, and stock strings were pathetic. Being a rock/metal musician who wants various sounds in my music, I needed a cheap fretless to add variety. This was the wrong choice. On the website it looks kinda nice, but it's not. The only pro is that it's lightweight, but other than that it's horrible. I do NOT recommend to anyone...ever...period....end of discussion.

          I wanted a fretless bass and could not justify spend much on one since it would not be played much. For this price, this is an excellent bass. plays great, sounds good, looks good. I can't believe they can make or sell this bass for this price. it is not pro quality, but still good quality. I wanted a fretless to experiment with, record a tune or two. this was perfect for my needs and then some.

          Just received this bass got the metallic blue, wanted a fretless in my arsenal without dropping a lot of cash. Overall it's a decent bass for how inexpensive it is. The setup is pretty good no string buzz, mine actually came with flatwounds already on it but I ordered some backups also, I recommend putting flatwounds on it maybe even tapewounds. The pickups are cheap but there isn't any noise coming from them i'm gonna replace them eventually with DiMarzio DP126 pickups. My cons are that it arrived with a chip on the body at the lower bout, scratches on the back cover plate and it was dusty, but so what the bass is so inexpensive and I plan on beating it up anyways. Definitely a good addition to your arsenal without feeling like you spent any money

            Great bass to add to. The dot alignment makes it a little flat, but that's a small problem. Line the dots up properly, and you're good to go.

            Comments about Rogue LX200BF Fretless Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

            This bass was great for my intended purposes (yours may differ). I have wanted to begin learning fretless but was unsure about dropping $700+. My only condition was that it was to be an unlined. I was skeptical because previously I have played mostly higher end instruments-Fender, Warwick, etc. Right out of the box I noticed how cool it looked (love looking at that unlined fretboard), though I'm really not a fan of the headstock. The flatwounds it came with actually sounded dull to me, as if they were really dead roundwounds. I eventually switched them out for roundwounds and it sounds much better. The bass is great for practicing and I'm inspired to pick it up again and again. I will eventually donate it to the local high school band shell and get a better instrument however.

            There are some cons here. I would not play this bass live at a gig. If the instrument cable wiggles at all, the sound is cut in and out through the amplifier. The pickups are cheap, and so you get what you would expect out of them (OK tone, but nothing that really makes you go "Yeahhhh, I like that"). The back of the neck feels a bit unfinished. Not too bad, but noticeably rougher than any neck I've ever played. This neck is an unfinished neck that was supposed to be fretted I believe. The side fret markers are where they would be for a fretted instrument-meaning they are in the middle of the frets. For instance, if you want to hit a G on your lowest string, you would not put your finger on the 3rd fret marker, but slightly after it because that fret marker designates between fret #2 and fret #3. My understanding is that unlined fretless basses typically have the marker right on the actual fretline. It's not so much of a big deal, but I did play for an entire week wondering why anything I played didn't quite sound right.

            In summation, if you are like me and want something to practice with and make sure you like before you upgrade then this is perfect. If you are looking for something to start gigging with immediately, I'd look elsewhere. Cheers.

                  Boys and girls...If you want to explore the untamed (and sometimes risky) world of the fretless bass, do talk with a real musician who knows about these sometimes unforgiving instruments.
                  If there are none, then fortunately your Uncle Patrick found some disturbing comments.
                  You need to alter your playing approach.
                  DO NOT ALTER THE POSITION MARKS!!!
                  Instead of playing between what we shall call "invisable frets," (as though you are playing a regular fretted instrument) place your fingertips over the invisable frets.
                  You can trust me now and thank me later.
                  As for the Rogue LX200BF, I've never played one, but with my experience with other Rogue instruments, would almost be willing to bet that this is a low-priced but high quality instrument.
                  I recommend any Rogue instrument. If you don't like it, send it back and either get a replacement or your money back.

                      This review is coming from a novice, so an experienced player may not have a whole lot of use with it.

                      The first thing I noticed about this bass is that it is extremely light. Initially I was worried that it meant that it could break easily, but close inspection and a couple of months of play show that this is a solid bass.

                      The dots on the side of the neck were clearly designed for a standard fretted bass, and it's best to ignore them to break the habit of looking at the neck to find positions anyway, so I personally have no problem with that. Better for ear training and muscle memory.

                      The pickups are a little strange. They feel kind of spring-loaded and were extremely close to the strings, like just short of touching them. I tightened them down to have the base of the mounting screws flush with the body, and it still sounds fine on the amp. I haven't really spent any time learning about pickups, so I'm afraid I can't really comment any further on that.

                      It does feel somewhat cheap compared to most other basses I've used, but the quality is awesome for such a low price.
