    Tacoma 5 string fretless

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I have played Tacoma 4 string fretted basses, and Tacoma in general gets good reviews, so I ordered a 5 string fretless. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed. It looks as if they started with a 4 string fretted neck without the frets, filled in the fret slots, and cut a 5 string nut for it. The strings are so close together that I can't get my fingers between them, and the dots on the side of the neck are where they should be on a fretted instrument.

    I really expected better; Tacoma, as I said, gets good reviews. Anyone else have a similar experience?

    That's heartbreaking! Do the strings knock into eachother when you play?

    No, but the gap between them is smaller than my fingers.
