Brice V2 6 String Fretless Bass Reviews
oK I had to have a 6 string because the only other thing I could afford was a 5 string or a 4 string but I am prejudice against 5 strings because every bassist plays them (I already own a 4)I want to be different and I have been listening to PRIMUS for several years and I knew that Les Claypool used a fretless six string. After listening to the songs played with a fretless 6 string I slowly became more and more interested in owning one of my own. I placed an order for a Trans Black Dean edge 6 string fretless from GuitarAsylum.com (Never order from Guitarasylum) but a week after I placed the order they called and told me that they did not have any in stock nor did they have any 6 string basses in stock under $500 so I said nevermind. One day my brother introduced me to a web site called Rondomusic.com and he showed me some sweet 6 string fretless basses for like $256.00. After I crapped my pants I couldn't help but order one. Three days later I recieved a quilted red V2 brice 6 string fretless that supprised the hell out of me.
I am 18 and have been playing bass for pretty much my whole life so I feel like I have some experience on this bass stuff.When I got the bass and looked at it I thought it was a great bass but I didn't think the pickups would be that great and I had contemplated replacing them with EMG's or something(this before I plugged it up to an amp).I plugged it up and played it to check the pickups and I imediatly slapped myself repeatedly for thinking about changing pickups. Once I accidentaly left the bass in my van outside while it was cold for a week(car trouble I had been busy and forgot) and when I realized it was in there I got it out, took it into my room to retune it but it was still in tune!! All I could say was WHOLE LEE CRAP!! I have learned a great deal of primus songs since I bought this bass like Jerry was a race car driver, My name is mud,DMV,Hamburger Train,and I have perfected Tommy the cat, anyone who knows anything about bass is aware that PRIMUS bass is complicated.Jesse Moore rated this unit on 2004-02-10.
