The acoustic bass guitar is a rich and diverse instrument that makes beautiful music on its own or as part of a rock band. If you’re an advanced bass player and want to find that perfect guitar that is as unique and distinctive as you are, consider a fretless acoustic bass.A fretless guitar is a guitar without frets which means fingering the strings at certain positions is done by pressing the string against its fingerboard. It is similar to a fretted one with a couple of exceptions: greater finger position is required, modified amplification or pickups may be needed to reach the perfect volume, and sliding between notes may feel more natural and smooth. Advanced or expert players may like fretless guitars as they allow the musician to get in more direct contact with the note played. Because of this, you want to find the best shape and style of guitar to meet your needs.
