(Article written by Ty Campbell for Bass Musician magazine). Ive always loved fretless basses, and the Vintage ICON V74MRJP Fretless 4-String Bass is one great fretless bass from the relicd sunburst finish, right down to the worn neck that feels just right, with a sound that is classic 70s. The ICON V74MRJP comes with round wound strings, which give you that fretless growl that just about every bassist loves. However, with having a rosewood fingerboard, over time, you will wear grooves in the fretboard. While flat wounds are great for fretless basses no matter the fretboard material, so are pressure wound strings, and as with any bass that has a rosewood fingerboard, I would highly recommend compression wound strings. You will still get that growl, but with a lot less damage over time to your fingerboard, in fact, some compression wound strings are specifically made for fretless basses. The Vintage ICON V74MRJP looks classic, feels classic, and most importantly, sounds classic. The body is constructed of Eastern Poplar with a 34 scale hard maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard complete with Pearloid dot inlays. Think about how Jaco did his bass, which had a rosewood fingerboard as well. All of the electronics and hardware are true Wilkinson. Trev Wilkinson has made parts for basses and guitars for many years and his parts are very well known for their durability and simplicity. Controls for the pickups are volume/volume/tone. The bridge is adjustable and the tuners are Wilkinson WJBL200 and all the hardware is nickel.
