Oh and thankies JPT you inspired me to play fretless in metal, or well learn to play it. Your work at Cosmogenesis blew my mind!

Nice collection! I especially love the one with Coromandel ebony fretboard. What's your favorite bass model, Jeroen ;) I admire your playing, keep up the good work!

The more you dig deeper on something differences become more apparent I guess. :)

Trust me... If I could have 3 more Thumb NT 5 string models (another fretted and two fretlesses), I would get them in a heart beat. But I'm in no shape or forum, cash wise, to have any extra Thumbs.

By the way, Jeroen.. Do you teach playing bass? or do you have time for that?

Nice collection there Jeroen,
i saw you play with Pestilence at "Nevelfest" in Merksem (Belgium) last summer.
I really freaked out when you started diggin in on that new fretless you had there.
(i was the crazy guy standing right in front of you playing along on the "air-bass"...:p)

Really loved that "mwaah" sound, actually i just bought my first thumb myself and i'm thinking about having it turned into a lined fretless for use with my death metal band as well.

lots of respect and greetings from Belgium. ;)

So, I will need at least another four Dolphins to be able to offer any resistance, aight?

And yes after hearing "anti cosmic overload" I too started wanting to play fretless again.
It has been 15 years since I changed to fretted instruments and now I am back on the mighty fretless. It sorta feels like coming home.
My intonation still ain't what it used to be but its been going upward rapidly since I got the bass (10 days ago).

Thanks for the inspiration and tips on what to check for when buying a used fretless Jeroen. You're the man!
